The all-new Fiat Tipo hatchback and Station Wagon will cost from £12,995 and £13,995 on the road respectively when they go on sale in September.
The new hatch can carry three six-feet-plus adults in the back with class-leading legroom. Boot capacity is also best in class at 440 litres, while the Station Wagon's 550-litre load bay also tops the class.
The Station Wagon can carry loads up to 1.8m long and its flip-and-fold 60/40 split rear seats provide a flat load floor. Loading is aided by a low sill, adjustable floor and removable side storage panels to increase the width. The roller cover can be stored under the floor panel.
Three trim levels – yet to be named for the UK – see entry-level include air conditioning, remote locking, electric front windows and door mirrors, six airbags, DAB radio, split rear seats, USB and Bluetooth connectivity with steering wheel controls while the estate adds electric rear windows and roof bars.
Mid-range trim, costing £1,000 more, adds a five-inch Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system, leather-trimmed steering wheel and gear knob, rear power windows, LED daytime running lights, 16in alloy wheels, front fog lights, rear parking sensors and cruise control.
