The Fiat Tipo has recently been released and we thought, let’s have a look at this gorgeous Italian car. Tons of great Fiat cars are advertised on Auto Mart, but today we are paying special attention to the Tipo, giving other Sedan cars and Hatchback cars on the market a run for their money.
The exterior of the Tipo Sedan
This Fiat Tipo is a great combination of style, multiple features and space. From the exterior, the car is very well designed. With it, you will find a car with a stylish grille built with integrated headlights. This helps create a stylish design like no other. You will find it hard to match this immaculate design in other Sedan cars.
From the sides, the car has wide opening doors that allow for easier access. Both driver and passengers will find this door design will give them easier access to the car’s interior. The Fiat Tipo knows no equal and amongst Sedan cars the Fiat Tipo stands tall. With the distinctive and visually appealing dynamic design, the Fiat Tipo will leave you breathless.
Another thing you will notice with the new Fiat Tipo is that it boasts of a premium, exquisite appearance. The chrome finishes on the door handles and the chrome finish on the lower window trim make the car look very expensive and classy. Of course this is not the case as the car is a very affordable but beautifully finished vehicle.
Having a look at the spacious interior of the Tipo Sedan
Internally, the car is equally impressive. The first thing you will notice when you step into the Fiat Tipo is that, unlike some Sedan cars, a lot of detail has been added to this car’s interior. Quite shockingly, despite the car’s relatively small size, the cabin looks and feels very spacey. You will definitely never be concerned about a lack of space with this Fiat Tipo.
The interior has been built with a very clean and fresh dashboard design. It looks very natural, almost as though it has been designed by Mother Nature herself. The car also has a brand new steering wheel. The steering wheel comes built with numerous features that allow you to easily control things like the radio. This is great for any driver who wants to have easy access to his or her radio.
One complaint, however, with the Tipo’s interior is that it has a plastic undertone. While it is well designed, you can see glimpses of plastic coating. This may reduce the interior’s appeal.
From a tech perspective, the car comes with a standard LCD screen, an AM/FM radio and Bluetooth and an optional 5 inch Uconnect touchscreen that gives you access to multimedia connectivity. As another add-on you can also choose to have your Fiat come with a TomTom 3D navigation system. This would be a vital addition for anyone who likes going on spur-of-the-moment road trips. This will serve as your virtual map ensuring that you never get lost again.
