Re: S design

I like the 18" wheels..

But the UK is not getting a saloon, so I'm confined to begging Fiat or eyeing up Hyundai i30 Fastbacks and Skoda Rapid saloon instead.. :lol:

Re: S design

Iíve got a grey one and a white one sitting in front of my desk at work. The wheels are lovely, and the interior with the bigger screen is much better

Re: S design

Went in one at my local dealers and was a bit disappointed. Prefer my Tipo Lounge two tone interior to the s-design faux half leather. The upgrade screen looked a bit after market too with its fitting!

Re: S design

Same here,looked at one yesterday and it's not worth the extra Fiat want for it from new,there's nothing that couldn't be replicated,even the "special" colour could be done with a wrap !

Re: S design

I quite like the S-Design in the Street Grey colour, but it's frustrating that you can't upgrade the part-leather interior to full leather like you can in the Lounge. On the other hand the Lounge has the tiny UConnect touchscreen and you can't upgrade to the bigger newer UConnect from the S-Design

Having had a basic 1.4 16v (95bhp) Easy as a courtesy car a few days ago, I was pretty impressed with the Tipo. My current car's a 2016 Alfa Giulietta 1.6 JTDm, though I've previously had several Fiat's and can imagine the higher powered engines being pretty decent in the Tipo. It didn't handle like the Giulietta, but it's a damn-sight cheaper so I wouldn't expect it to.

I'd probably go for a Lounge, as you can get the leather interior and the smaller 17" wheels would suit the local roads better than the 18" ones on the S-Design. Just a shame you can't get the bigger screen and Street Grey colour on the Lounge or add leather to the S-Design

Re: S design

I think the leather isn't proper leather either,it some sort of faux leather ,and for us in the UK fitting the 7" head unit only brings the car inline with the rest of Europe !
