Hatchback version of Fiat Tipo is filmed. Extensively

When Fiat decided to bring back the Tipo, my first question was: what about the hatchback? It will be presented very soon, as this video from walkoART, shared by FERD, on Facebook, clearly states. The car is ready and is probably going some fine tuning around Europe. Quick stuff, for sure. Check the video below:

The hatchback version will probably be around 4.20 m long, sharing its other main measures with the sedan: 1.48 m tall and 1.78 m wide, with a wheelbase of 2.64 m. While the sedan is able to carry 510 l in its trunk, the hatchback should be able to transport 350 l, maybe a little less than that. People with kids will very likely prefer the SW version, which has not been seen in outdoor testing so far.

The level versions of the car will very likely follow the ones offered by the sedan, with an entry level equiped with a 1.4 Fire petrol engine or with a 1.3 MultiJet diesel engine, both able to generate 71 kW. This last one will be offered both in Euro 5 and Euro 6 configurations. The 1.6 MultiJet, on the other hand, will be only available in Euro 6 specifications, both with a 6 speed manual gearbox or with a 6 speed double clutch automated transmission. It produces 89 kW. The biggest petrol engine will be the 1.6 E.torQ, producing 82 kW and solely offered with a 6 speed automatic transmission. Both of them will be offered in top end versions of the new Tipo.
