Tempting

Im getting quite tempted by a Tipo, my local Fiat dealer is hosting a VIP event apparently with some great deals. I know Fiat do have an offer on the Tipo I want (1.4 tjet 120hp) and wonder if they can do any better..

Might be a bit early for major discounts.

But I used https://www.carwow.co.uk/ for my Panda.

Interesting, I've stuck a request in, see what comes from it.

Fiat have their own offer on it at the moment:

I'm just back from hols in Menorca, and had a Tipo 1.6 diesel as the hire car. It was awful.. Not sure what the Fiat engineers were thinking!

Really? Was it the engine or interior? What didn't you like? I don't think there is any in the UK yet so have yet to see one in the flesh.

The exterior styling was pretty dire, with odd bits and pieces around the car. Looked like it had been driven into.. The interior was better and more practical, quite a bit of space. But that's not enough to sell a car.

It handled like a barge, very vague. Engine calibration was woeful - engine was either off or on, with a big jolt if you touched the pedal. Had to be very precise with the gearbox.

Generally not very good at anything.

Re: Tempting

Carwow gives a good discount... but the dealers on there may be just recycling the Fiat discount by the looks of it. One or two give a bit extra but they tend to be the more isolated places, so you'd spend the difference in time/petrol..

It's worth seeing what your local dealer can do by the looks of it.. and then haggling for free mats. *Always* haggle for free mats..
