Re: FIATís new C-Segment contender to be named FIAT TIPO

As far as i know these are very different motors, based on different platforms, I think Viaggio is based on the Alfa Giulietta (platform Fiat C) platform whereas the Tipo is based on Fiats Small Wide LWB platform (500L & X, Renegade etc). I'm very happy the guys at Fiat didn't just give us a Viaggio as to my eyes the Tipo looks a whole lot better than the Viaggio/Ottimo cars sold in China, plus the interior of Tipo looks a lot smarter.

Can't wait to see the 5 door, could be a replacement for my Bravo!

Re: FIATís new C-Segment contender to be named FIAT TIPO

Something puzzles me about the spec of the new Tipo. Why no multiair engines? If my information is correct there will only be two petrol engines: The 1.4 16v Star Jet from the old Stilo and the almost as old 1.4 T Jet.

it's not aimed at "1st world" markets..
so limited servicing and lower spec fuel is almost expected

hence tried and tested - relatively low performance motors.

Re: FIATís new C-Segment contender to be named FIAT TIPO

It's a 'low budget' offering, designed to undercut the likes of the Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra, so they're limitting the size of the engines. I suppose if you want more power in that sort of car you're expected to move to the Alfa Giulietta. Makes some sence to me - the last Fiat family car (2007 Bravo) was so close in price to a Giulietta that it rendered it a bit pointless, so this seems like a decent move to me.

Also, the MultiAir engines have given some grief in the earliest cars they were fitted to (Punto, MiTo, Giulietta) so I'd prefer to have the T-Jet 120 engine anyway. It's still a good engine, just more conventional than the MultiAirs

Re: FIATís new C-Segment contender to be named FIAT TIPO

Yes, that makes sense and the Star Jet is a great engine, even if a bit low on power by today's standards. Didn't know about problems with Multiair. Do you think these engines are not fulfilling their early promise on account of reliability issues?

the TA and multiair system is a very CLEAN ( fuel efficient) way of fuelling an engine.. but needs relatively specialist care / maint.

so as I said previously - the cheaper simpler engines suit a budget car better.

very few buyers will give a "CHEAP" car expensive servicing.

Ah, the Evening Gazette, The Beard's late mother-in-law's favourite journal. Every night straight to the obituaries.

Her day wasn't complete without it. If it was a choice between the Gazette or food, she'd have starved to death, although she'd have gone to meet her maker with a smile on her face and the Gazette in her hand.

Eh? What? When? Despite being now almost six years old, our Giulietta MA is giving faultless service. Apart from the obstructive 1st gear as reported on the earliest road test cars, it's been very good.

During normal knocking about commuting type duties, it seems to give 39 to the gallon and on a holiday to Norfolk earlier this year returned a true, measured 43mpg which, although not in diesel territory, isn't bad for a five door, five seater that will get from 0 - 60 in around 7.5 seconds if you give it some.

The only thing we were warned about was the need to:
a) Make sure the oil was properly topped up, and
b) Use premium grade oil

as the MA system is hydraulically actuated with oil.

Happy reading! The Giulietta area of the forum has had many similar posts:

Don't get me wrong they're impressive engines, but unless they were the only feasible option for my circumstances I'd go with the more simple T-Jet, or a JTDm.

Hi Liam, good to hear from you again, it's been a while. I noticed your name on the odd post over there.

Actually, I'm having a little problem logging on as I couldn't remember my password and when I asked for a new one the link just sent me right back to where I had to put my password in again.

Then I sent Admin an e-mail who then sent me another link which I, er, sort of, well, forgot about so it's expired again. I'll try again in the next couple of days.

Thanks Yeah I've also migrated to Alfa Ownership - It was a toss-up between a Bravo and a MiTo but the lower running costs of the MiTo won out! Can't help but think the Bravo would've been more comfortable on the awful roads round here though - the MiTo is, shall we say 'firm' Think I'll go back to a Stilo/Bravo sized car next.

I can't log-in on Alfa Owner either. After that data breach when they reset the passwords I've not been able to suss it out. I must look into it properly so that I can post again.

Hope you're well

Data breach? I hope they didn't get my password for http://www.hugebreastedswedishteenag...withfacialhair

Actually if they did it could be Mrs. Beard who breached security!
