Using a name that dates back to 1988, the Fiat Tipo returned to the market in 2015, after a 20-year hiatus. Designed to replace both the Linea and Bravo, the Tipo is offered in three body styles — sedan, hatchback, and wagon. All three versions are already available in showrooms and, for 2017, Fiat is launching a new model. Dubbed S-Design, it features a few sportier elements on the outside and unique features inside, giving it a distinct personality. The S-Design upgrade will be available for both the hatchback and wagon and the former will make its public debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
