The new Fiat Tipo hatchback (2016) shown in a new spy video , uploaded to YouTube by “walkoART♔♕ ♚Videos “: images of the hatchback Italian were made in Germany and allow us to find out some interesting technical components on a prototype test the model in question. Judging from the clip, it seems that the 5-door version of the type could differenziersi the sedan not only for the loss of the third volume, but also for some cosmetic changes and techniques to enhance the car.
2016 Fiat Tipo Spy Photos
Outside fact immediately evident the new lights on the prototype, the most sought after in the design and apparently equipped with LED daytime running lights , positioned at the bottom edge. Inside stand instead new seats and, above all, a display for the infotainment system larger than that seen on the sedan type and built into the dashboard as a tablet (alongside this figure a second TFT panel, which probably is part of the instrumentation vehicle).
Sharpening the view on the wheel, under the command of the cruise-control, they are shown what could be switches the electronic speed limiter and radar to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front and automatically avoid a collissione (components already available Jeep Renegade 500X and also for the type with which shares the platform construction). The presence of the latter technology would seem confirmed by what has all the appearance of being a sensor driving assistance, placed in the lower left portion of the bumper, immediately below the radiator grille, next to the lamps (and absent on the Type sedan).Looking at the pictures in question, the impression is that Fiat is continuing the development of the “type” trying to give the appearance of two volumes and a cutting component apparently higher than those seen on the sedan: it would not be surprising if the type hatchback, the model will likely be more in demand in Europe, it was built with a “focus on” more for the perceived quality than the sedan, with the latter mainly intended to make sales volumes in emerging markets.
