The Fiat Tipo is also called the Fiat Ægea in Turkey, where it is produced. Turkey will be one of the largest single markets for the sedan model, but these sales are not included in the European car sales data.
The Tipo sedan was introduced at the end of 2015 to replace the Fiat Linea. A hatchback and even a station wagon are planned for 2016 to replace the Fiat Bravo hatchback. However, because of continued struggles of Fiat in the European compact car segment the Tipo is positioned as an “entry-level” compact car, meaning budget pricing and technology as Fiat is trying to copy the success of Dacia in Europe.
