Known as the Egea in Turkey, the Fiat Tipo has been treated to the Mirror and Street trim levels for the 2019 model year. Available in four-door sedan, five-door hatchback, and station wagon body styles, the newcomers combine urban styling with strong content and affordable pricing.
The Mirror is distinguished by the chrome detailing and Venezia Blue paintwork, coming as standard with Uconnect 7.0-inch HD Live, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. The Mirror badge on the B-pillar sets this trim level apart from an aesthetic standpoint, along with the alluring alloy wheels with a diamond-cut finish.

Moving on to the Street, this Tipo is based on the Pop and adds black-painted alloy wheels, contrasting dark details, tinted privacy window, and LED lighting. Fiat says this version “is targeted to young customers who want their car to be dynamic, stylish, and accessible,” although we’re hearing that no youngster would ever dream of owning a Tipo, let alone buy one.

Compliant with the latest emissions regulations, the Mirror and Street are available with a choice of four engines and two transmissions. Be it the manual or dual-clutch gearbox, these models can be had with the 1.4-liter T-Jet four-cylinder turbo (95 and 120 horsepower) as well as the 1.3- and 1.6-liter MultiJet four-cylinder turbo diesel (95 and 120 horsepower).

Both models can be optioned with Mopar Connect, a suite of services that integrate with Uconnect Live to add new functionalities. Roadside assistance, rescue in case of accidents, and the location of the car in case of theft are some of those. The Fleet version of Mopar Connect enables users to locate their cars easily on their smartphones.

As much as Fiat wants to move the Tipo as fast as possible off dealership lots, the truth of the matter is that sales are down from the previous year (123,762 examples sold in Europe). In August, the Tipo managed to sell 9,415 units. The Volkswagen Golf is in a league of its own as far as the compact segment is concerned, selling 33,978 examples in August.
