Taking its name from a popular Fiat that was retired in 1995, the modern Tipo is a sturdy family car available as a hatchback or an estate. Ever since its 2016 UK launch, it’s come with a generous set of standard features, sharp design and great value for money. Both petrol and diesel versions are on offer. Though most are manual, you can also find automatic models out there. Loads of space inside means the Tipo is practical and versatile, making it a great option for the school run, local driving or longer trips.
