Review

Well equipped and spacious, but the best value is found towards the bottom of the range. Rivals are better to drive and classier inside, too.

get the best price

This range-topping trim adds sat-nav, climate control, automatic lights and wipers, a reversing camera and adjustable lumbar support for the driver. The trouble is, it puts the Tipo in a price point that it struggles to compete in, so we'd recommend one of the cheaper trims.\n,

The entry-level petrol engine offers the cheapest way into Tipo ownership. It is, however, only slightly more fuel efficient than the more powerful turbocharged petrol and, although we've yet to try it, is likely to feel sluggish on the road. We'd recommend paying a bit extra for the 1.4 T-Jet.
