Why Lease A Fiat Tipo?
Benefits Of Leasing A Fiat TipoThe Tipo provides straightforward, unpretentious family transport. It’s not built to win races or climb mountains, but what it does offer is a spacious cabin, plenty of standard equipment and conspicuously good value-for-money. In short, it provides everything that most people actually need from a car.

How Does The Fiat Tipo Drive?
One of the Tipo’s main strengths is its practicality. There’s a decent amount of cabin storage, spread across a variety of cubby holes, plus a generous boot. The hatchback offers 440 litres of storage space – that’s comfortably more than you’ll find in the Ford Focus, the Vauxhall Astra or the Volkswagen Golf, which are the traditional benchmarks for cars of this class.
There’s also an estate version (referred to by Fiat as a Station Wagon). This offers a useful increase in boot volume – although at 550 litres, it doesn’t outperform its rivals in quite the same way as the hatchback. A Ford Focus Estate, in comparison, is fractionally roomier.
Space in the back is another plus point. There’s more rear legroom than you’ll find in most cars of this size. Headroom isn’t quite so generous in the hatchback, but the Station Wagon offers slightly more.
The Tipo is a relatively economical car. Exact fuel economy figures will depend on the model that you choose. With the new 1.0-litre engine, the Tipo hatchback returns up to 51.4mpg, while the Tipo Cross and Tipo City Sport are somewhat thirstier at 48.7mpg. The Station Wagon sits in between the 2 at 50.4mpg.
These figures are roughly average for the class, with the Tipo more or less matching the fuel economy of some of its more expensive rivals. Speaking of which, it’s worth bearing in mind that lease rates for the Tipo tend to be usefully lower than its big-name competitors, which will also reduce your monthly outgoings.
Tipo HatchbackThe mainstay of the Tipo range is a conventional 5-door hatchback.
Tipo CrossThe hatchback body is available in both standard form and an outdoorsy Cross version, that adds a few SUV-like styling tweaks and some additional equipment.
Tipo Station WagonIf you’re looking for more practicality and boot space than either the hatchback or the Cross can provide, then the 5-door Station Wagon is the best option.
The Fiat Tipo Vs Competitors
At 440 litres, the Tipo Hatchback’s boot is one of the largest in its class. Meanwhile, the Tipo Station Wagon’s 550-litre boot is roughly average for a compact estate car.
There are 4 main trim lines on the hatchback: Tipo, Life, City Sport and Cross. Only the first 2 are available on the Station Wagon. There are also a small number of additional options available including satellite navigation, blind spot monitoring and heated front seats.
Yes. All versions come with rear parking sensors. Front parking sensors and a rear camera are available on City Sport and Cross models.
Plenty of cabin storage, 60/40-split folding rear seats and a generous boot make the Tipo impressively practical for a midsized family car. It’s not as roomy as the Skoda Octavia, but it offers more space than most of its rivals. If practicality is a priority, the Tipo Station Wagon offers usefully more room in the boot.
The Fiat Tipo is a sound leasing choice due to its practicality and value-for-money. Pound-for-pound, you’d typically be looking at a smaller car or more basic trim level from most of the other major brands.
