Fiat Tipo Is the Name of Egea, Indian Name Could be different as well considering India doesn’t fall in EMEA category, launch in late 2016
Fiat is all set to replace the ageing, sedan they have worldwide, the Linea, in Turkey. Fiat has released the images of the production ready Egea C-segment sedan ahead of its launch scheduled for November in the country. A car which is set to replace the Linea in the Turkey, an important country for its operation and a place where this new sedan is being built.
After changing the name twice from Aeega to Eega, there is a new name for the EMEA markets and that is Tipo. The new sedan Tipo is going to be sold in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) markets and the rest of the world will follow.
This is an all-new car, made from scratch to replace the Linea worldwide and it is right fully done. The German type stance of the car with beautiful front and rear-ends of the car along with a lot of character in front grille and dramatic tail-lights make the cars look like a billion dollars.
Interiors take inspiration from the 500 series and at first glance it has high quality interior with everything seems all new. We hope the old ergonomics interiors are sorted out.
The Tipo measures 4500 mm in length, 1780 mm in width, 1480 mm in height and has a wheelbase of 2640 mm. These dimensions make it a Honda City and Hyundai Verna fighter indeed. Engines, when it comes to Fiat, will be similar as we know since so many years. Options include two diesel and one petrol motor for the Turkey as of now.
The diesel power comes from the 1.3-litre MultiJet II motor tuned for 95 PS and a 1.6-litre MultiJet II churns out 120 PS. The II stands for direct injection and better efficiency and emission that was done quite some time back and Indian hasn’t received it yet. Petrol punch comes from a 1.4-litre FIRE unit that will produce 95 PS, which is likely not to make it to India and we will continue to get 1.4 Turbo engine. We can’t wait for this car to our market soon!
