FCA will sell the new Fiat Tipo as the Dodge Neon in Mexico

The new Fiat Tipo apparently will only escape being sold at the Brazilian market. All other countries will have the new car from Fiat, even if not always as a Fiat. In Mexico, a leaked brochure or a presentation, we do not know for sure, has shown it will be sold as the new Dodge Neon. Check it below.

The image was revealed by Ferd. And the new Tipo looks very good as a Dodge as well. It is worth remembering the car will also have a hatchback and a station wagon versions. Will they be sold in Mexico as well? We do not see a reason why not. Perhaps only market preferences.

It will most certainly retain all technical specifications from the Fiat model. In other words, it will be 4.50 m long, 1.48 m tall and 1.78 m wide, with a wheelbase of 2.64 m. Its luggage compartment will be able to carry 510 l. The Tipo is offered in 3 trim levels (Easy, Urban and Lounge), with the entry-level equipped 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 manualgearbox 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. The 1.6 MultiJet is offered for the Urban trim and is the only available engine for the Lounge in Turkey, where the car is called Aegea, the same name of the concept car. Now, it will also be known as Neon. Dodge Neon.
