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.
