F iat is completely in the compact class new on. With the Tipo /Aegera, the Italians have already presented a notchback sedan. This is followed by a hatchback and a station wagon variant. The two new body variants are celebrating their premiere at the Geneva Motor Show. All three model versions share the same technology. As usual in this class, all body variants share the design features and are almost identical up to the B-pillar. The differentiation only takes place in the body area behind it. The steeply sloping rear of the hatchback is given a roof edge spoiler. The arched windows in the rear doors extend far into the C-pillars. With the Kombi SW, the roof line slopes slightly down to the rear, which is also extended here with a roof edge spoiler.

Seat test Fiat Tipo station wagon

As it should be for a station wagon, we are primarily interested in the trunk of the strikingly drawn Italian: back-friendly height the loading sill, no loading threshold. The trunk floor can be raised and reveals a very neat storage compartment. Convenient: The raised floor easily engages and disengages in its top position. The Tipo Kombi cannot completely hide its competitive price in the interior, but we have nothing to complain about in the loading compartment. That's a lot of station wagon for the money.

The Tipo cockpit can't shine quite as well. The Italian smells a bit very new. The fabric seats optically offer lateral support, but in practice it is quite soft. In contrast, the steering wheel feels as if it was cast from hard plastic - a hand flatterer feels different. But we're not in a premium combination here either.

The steering wheel is hard, as if it were cast from hard plastic - a hand flatterer is different .

The headroom is okay at the front and rear, the legroom in the rear is only sufficient for tall people if the driver is not too big at the front. or passenger is seated.

In both versions, the rear seat backrests can be folded down asymmetrically, creating a level load compartment floor that can also be lowered. The luggage compartment cover is located under the trunk floor.
