Driving Report: Fiat Tipo Cross 1.0 T3
As he looks: At the middle of 2021 Fiat made a Tipo-Duo a Tip trio. This means that a third model variant is joined for the classic five-door and the station wagon that complies with the dictation of the time spirit and rebuilds a new target group with robust SUV optics. About the normal Tip, the cross extends beyond seven centimeters and thus brings it to stately 4.39 meters in length; The body was laid by about four centimeters higher and adorns with rustic details such as lateral planks, under run protection, black-mounted wheel runs and a roof ruling. In the honeycomb grill prominent denies the new Fiat logo.
How to set up: functional. Although the built-in hard plastic is made by various chromium details and also a bit of piano varnish, however, remains the dominant material. Convenient positioned can be found on the seated in comfortable gray-black padded seats. On the center console a classic handbrake lever perches, the ignition key still needs to the castle.
The radical digital of a VW Golf makes the Tip not with, yesterday's interior but by no means — the look of the driver is aimed at a 7-inch display behind the handy steering wheel, right next to it is standard also 7 inches large screen installed, the Via Android Auto or Apple CarPlay the smartphone content reflects. Against 400 euros comes a navigation on board. We advise against the 500 euro investment in the Tech package with 10.25-inch infotainment and clear tile structure, which does not maintain a factory navigation, but very confidently leaves the smartphone, the connection is wireless, also The charging pad is included here.
Rather weak, the heater worked in our test car. This also applies to the heating of the seats (300 euros), which has also switched off very quickly.
Interior: functional and digital not over styled. Manufacturer
How much space he has: Here are the respectable dimensions and the higher body. Input and exit are convenient, claustrophobic supervisions are neither the front nor the backward passengers. And the trunk capacity 440 liters — as well as shopping — like traveling. However, there is no adjustable loading floor.
What drives him: a 74 kW / 100 hp heavy-three-cylinder gasoline engineers from Faith Firefly motor family. He hears his nuclear, but not uncomfortable, he runs manually cultivated and proves to be sufficient at strength. The maximum torque of 190 Newton meters already lies at 1500 tours, which promotes that on the paper — faith progresses — confirms in practice. The acceleration of 0 to 100 takes place in 12.2 seconds, via the highway the Tip Cross with a maximum of 183 km / h.
The three-cylinder strips Fiat with a neat-switching five-speed gearbox, but a sixth gear remains failed and reserved only the alternatively available 1,6-L diesel (96 kW / 130 hp). And an automatic is unfortunately not intended for the Tip Cross.
As he drives: The indicated off-road optics is not released with all-wheel technology, drive the Tip Cross experiences exclusively over the front wheels. The chassis tuning holds a thoughtful balance between taut and comfortable, curves, the Italian differs quickly and without inappropriate side pitch. The steering works pleasantly directly, in city traffic, it can be switched to the Fiat-typical, smoother City mode. We find: In the overall package that feels good and solid.
As standard, an attention assistant supports an attentive traffic sign recognition and a somewhat every lane assistant, against which it is considered mainly in construction sites. In the higher equipment variant Tip Cross also helps an emergency brake and a high-speed assistant and an adaptive temp oat. The reliable dead angle assistant costs 300 euros extra.
Cheap priced: The Tip Cross already serves from 21,490 euros. Manufacturer
What he consumes: The standard mix according to WLTP names Fiat with 5.8 l / 100 km. Such a value was not tried. With an average of 7.7 l / 100 km, our test car did not speak as a savings miracle.
What he offers: as the basic model City Cross, including air conditioning, Connect radio with 7-inch display and smartphone connection, height and longitudinally adjustable steering wheel, cruise control and the already mentioned driving assistants. The better variant Tip Cross brings supplementary (see above) extra vehicle helpers, including 17-inch alloy wheels, full LED headlights, front / rear parking sensors, a USB port in the rear, electrically heated outside mirror and a light and rain sensor for delivery.
What he costs: The Tip City Cross from 21,490 euros, the Tip Cross from 23,190 euros.
What we mean: With the Fiat Tip Cross the customer meets a choice of reason, because the price-performance ratio is of all honors. The considerable optics meets a functional, digitally not overburdened but still at the level of the time interior design, furthermore on generous space and solidity in drive and driving behavior. Air up — or better down — remains with consumption.
