Could be a replacement to the Fiat Grand Siena.

The Fiat Tipo sedan has been snapped in Brazil reportedly in a premises of Fiat. Launched in Turkey and Italy, the Tipo is a replacement to the ageing Fiat Linea that will spawn a hatchback and an estate variant soon. It is manufactured in Turkey by TOFAS, which will export the model to over 40 markets in the EMEA region.

Fiat has announced a successor to the Fiat Grand Siena in 2016 (launch cadence report below), and the Tipo could be that model. In October, a report from Just-Auto stated that the Tipo was expected to be manufactured in Brazil.
