If they came along with a Tipo HGT sportwagen I might be seriously tempted

Re: The new FIAT Tipo wins the prestigious "AUTOBEST 2016" award

Well, it's been a very long time (about eight years) since I last posted on FF, but I saw a video of the new Tipo on YouTube and thought it was an intriguing prospect. Not a bad looking car and pitched unashamedly cheap, which is a refreshing change. Can it tempt me back into the fold for FIAT No 5? Shame we have to wait until September!

Good value, and decent looking.

Shame the colour range is incredibly dull. They have stolen Toyota's colour pallet's.

I quite agree about the colours, I had a nose on the Fiat UK configurator and they are very uninspiring!

I'm not in the market for one, but to be honest I'd probably just go for the entry level 1.4 Easy in white as it would have all the equipment I need. Don't think I'd be prepared to pay for any of the metallic colours; the metallic red shade looks alright-ish on the configurator, but would depend on how it looked in the flesh.

Re: The new FIAT Tipo wins the prestigious "AUTOBEST 2016" award

Tipo arrived in my Fiat dealer's this week (Donnellys Belfast). Mid spec model in white -very nice and rear end treatment is excellent. Fit and finish looked to be high standard.
Only problem was no fanfare; the car just stood in the showroom along with other models. There were no leaflets and no sign outside announcing a new model. A pity because at that rate it will suffer the same sales fate as the Stilo and Bravo before it.

Re: The new FIAT Tipo wins the prestigious "AUTOBEST 2016" award

I've had an email from the dealer i used for servicing on my Alfa in the West Midlands, saying there's a launch weekend event on 3-4 September for the Tipo and 10-11 September for the 124 Spider. I'm assuming other dealers will be doing the same, so perhaps there'll be more in the way of baloons and bunting then?

I've seen the Spider advertised on TV, saying 'launching 10th September' or something to that effect, so I'm guessing they're using that car as the tool to get people in the dealerships and hoping that'll create a knock-on effect for other models. I guess the Spider would pull more traffic into dealers than the Tipo, just because Fiat's reputation for coupe/convertibles tends to be better than for family hatches.

And they need to save some of that marketting budget for the imminent Maserati Levante and Alfa Giulia!

Yes.. I'm invited to a Tipo launch on 3rd-4th September too.

Value for money eh. I dont suppose they have factored depreciation into that one then, my Bravo seems to have lost 8000 in 22 months. or 13000 in 41 months. You work it ourt, its to painful for me to do it. I don't think the Tipo will be any better. Do please think VERY carefully before buying one of these anywhere near new!!!!

If you're referring to your Bravos trade in value, then it's going to be awful, chances are you'll get a shocking p/x whatever car you're getting rid of!

Re: The new FIAT Tipo wins the prestigious "AUTOBEST 2016" award

Gulp. I've just ordered one. An Easy Plus with the smaller diesel engine, in black.

I was thoroughly disappointed with my 500L twin-air (well, I was disappointed with the economy of the twin-air) and I was just about to jump ship to Skoda when I was invited to go see the Tipo. (Some of you may have spotted me raging against the 500L machine on that forum, over the time I'd had it.......)

I was sold when I looked at the rear leg room. I use my cars for casual chauffeuring duties for a Mayor and although the 500L had excellent rear leg room, it never quite looked the part. To my eyes, the Tipo is a fine looking car and the rear legroom again is superb for the class. Yeah, I could have bought a Mondeo, or a Superb or similar, but I like to be a bit different. I've chuaffeured in both styles of Multiplas, the 500L and now the Tipo when it comes.

I'm looking forward to seeing the other chauffeurs faces when I turn up in a Fiat yet again. But for once, a good looking one!

It's due to be delivered by the end of the month and I'll let you know how I get on. I'll try to be a bit more, how can I say.....open minded....., about the Tipo.

Also wins the Peter Cresswell award for the highest depreciating new car on sale in the UK. You need to buy and use for 100K miles at least to get anything like value!! Be warned.
