Aravind Jayachandran,

It goes without saying that I’m a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Fiat Egea nameplate exclusive to Turkey.

Fiat has announced that the production-spec Fiat Egea (Fiat Aegea) sedan will be called the Fiat Tipo in EMEA markets. Sales of the Fiat Tipo will begin in Italy from December 2015.

The Tipo’s dimensions will be identical to Egea, which measures 4500 mm long, 1780 mm wide, 1480 mm tall, and has a wheelbase of 2640 mm. As previewed by the Egea, the Fiat Tipo features an all new design that is a remarkable upgrade from the Linea.

The interior comes with a flowing dashboard featuring a silver accent running across it, and buttons neatly arranged under the central HVAC vents, a 3-spoke steering wheel with buttons, Uconnect infotainment system with a 5-inch color touchscreen display, automatic climate control and Bluetooth connectivity.

Fiat has confirmed that the Tipo will offer two Multijet diesel engines: 95 hp and 120 hp. They are likely to be the 1.3 Multijet capable of 95 PS and a 1.6 Multijet II with 120 hp. It will be paired to a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed manual gearbox.

Reports suggest that, apart from its main production in Turkey, the Fiat Tipo will also be manufactured in Brazil and India, re-igniting rumors of its eventual introduction in India.
