Fiat Tipo Street trim level adds stylish touches
Street trim combines extra visual interest with an affordable price and low running costs
Fiat has announced a new trim level for its Tipo range. The Street sits above the entry-level Easy specification, it's available to order now and it adds a number of extras over the base model. It costs from just £15,050.
Picking the Street trim gets you black 16-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights, LED daytime running lights and a handful of chrome Street badges. Fiat will also throw in tinted rear windows and contrasting black touches, most noticeably on the door mirror caps and the door handles.
Sitting between the Easy and Easy Plus trims, the Street trim is only available with Fiat’s 1.4-litre non-turbo petrol engine, producing 95bhp. While it’s far from the newest or most economical engine, it’ll does have temptingly low running costs. With this engine in either Easy or Easy Plus trim, the Tipo sits in group 8E for insurance and the Street is likely to be similarly affordable to insure.
The Tipo Street shares its interior with the Easy spec so, while you don’t get the 5-inch touchscreen of the Easy Plus model, it’s still reasonably well-equipped. DAB radio, Bluetooth and USB connectivity are all included. As well as cruise control, air conditioning and autonomous emergency braking.
Costing only £500 more than the entry-level Easy spec, the Street trim makes a tempting proposition for buyers with all of the additional kit included. For a limited time after launch, it’s available with 0% finance too.
This new trim level is available on both the Fiat Tipo hatchback and Fiat Tipo estate body styles, although expect to pay a little bit extra for the larger estate.
