The Fiat Tipo is a medium-sized five-door hatchback and estate family car. The current generation model arrived in the UK in the summer of 2016, and was most recently updated in Autumn 2020.

The Tipo has received mixed reviews from the UK motoring media, which has resulted in an overall Expert Rating that is currently the lowest in its class. Of particular note is a poor three-star safety rating from Euro NCAP, when most of the class leaders have a five-star safety rating.

The Fiat Tipo has been praised for its keen pricing, good equipment levels and spaciousness. However, it has been criticised for its uninspiring driving dynamics, poor interior quality and below-par safety equipment.
