The new Fiat Tipo Station Wagon has been spied testing, ahead of its launch later this year.
It's clear from the spy shots that the estate variant will share the same front-end styling as the Tipo hatchback and saloon. This is particularly apparent at the car's front, where the grille design follows that of the 124 Spider and the lights adopt Fiat's new design languag. Heavy black cladding prevents us from seeing the rear-end treatment, but a boomerang-shaped tail-light design is visible, following the same approach as the saloon, which we test drove earlier this year.
In profile, a gently tapering roofline and sloping tailgate can be seen, much like those of rivals such as the Seat Leon ST. The Tipo Station Wagon will be a touch longer than the saloon's 4.54 metres, while offering considerably more boot space than the 500 litres or so offered by the saloon.
Like the Tipo saloon and hatchback, the Station Wagon will come with a choice of four engines at launch - two Multijet II diesels and two petrols - with power outputs ranging between 94bhp and 118bhp.
