Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Fiat Tipo hatchback?

This is where the Fiat Tipo struggles a bit. While it might be cheaper to buy new than its rivals, when it comes to the second-hand market the price difference isn’t great enough to justify its shortcomings against more accomplished alternatives.

For a little bit more money, you could have an example of the award-winning Seat Leon. It has a much better infotainment system, its interior is vastly superior in terms of the quality of materials used, the engine range is much more refined and it benefits from a full five-star Euro-NCAP safety rating compared with the Tipo’s three stars.
