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.

Trim: Lounge

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,

Engine: 1.4 T-Jet [120]

Our favourite engine – particularly if you're a private buyers rather than a company car driver. It's turbocharged so has more low-rev pull than the entry-level 1.4, and yet still keeps the price reasonable.
