The Fiat Tipo was a small family car produced by the Italian manufacturer Fiat from 1988 to 1995. It was designed to replace the Ritmo/Strada, a model that had damaged the Fiat's reputation due to its notorious rust problems. The production of the Tipo was an important step for the company, as it was made entirely out of galvanized body panels and built on a completely new chassis that was praised for its ride and handling. This, together with its impressive safety features such as the driver's airbag, earned the Tipo the prestigious European Car of the Year award in 1989.
The Tipo initially came in five-door hatchback form. It was available in base, DGT, S, SX and 16v trim levels, with several engine options ranging from 1.1 to 2.016v. The base engines were not powerful enough for the roomy car and the best option was the 2.0 sedicivalvole (16v) that offered excellent handling and brakes compared to its rivals at the time. In 1993, the Tipo had some minor changes, such as the addition of a three-door version, exterior tweaks, and more tech features. This brought with it new S, SX and SLX trim levels, as well as the 2.0 GT model.
The Tipo was retired in 1995 and was replaced by the Fiat Bravo, Marea and Brava. In the same year, the Tipo chassis was used to create three derivatives: the Fiat Tempra sedan and station wagon, and the coupé Fiat Coupé.
