In 2015, Fiat unveiled the Egea, a concept that previewed a compact sedan designed to replace the aging Linea. A few months later, the production car with the same name was launched in Turkey and renamed the Tipo for other markets. It was a significant departure from its predecessor, employing a fresh design, a well-equipped interior, and a diverse engine lineup.

Aimed at the highly disputed C-segment that includes popular hatchbacks such as theVolkswagen Golf and the Ford Focus, the Tipo replaces the Bravo, which was discontinued in Europe in 2014.
