The hatchback version of the Fiat Tipo has been spied out and about on the streets of Europe. Not long after Fiat gave an official debut to the production ready Tipo sedan, the hatchback variant has been spotted by our spy photography team. Fiat is also developing a wagon version of the Tipo, which will be sold alongside the sedan and hatch across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The Tipo hatch and wagon are expected to make their public debut at the 2016 Geneva motor show in March. Reportedly based on the same platform as the Fiat 500X and Jeep Renegade, the sedan measures just a tick over 4.5 metres long, putting it, physically at least, in the same class as the Ford Focus. At launch, the Tipo sedan buyers can select from four engine options. On the petrol side there’s a 69kW 1.4-litre and a 79kW 1.6-litre, while diesel purchasers can choose between a 69kW 1.3-litre and a 87kW 1.6-litre. The new Tipo range will be sold in the UK, meaning that right-hand drive versions will be offered. When the original Project Aegea concept was unveiled earlier this year, Fiat Australia told CarAdvice: “There’s no immediate plans to introduce the Fiat Agea into our Australian line-up. But of course we never completely rule anything out, and should the Agea become available in right-hand drive for our market, then it is something we could consider.”
