    The German auto website Autogefuhl is known for deeply fair, knowledgeable and scrupulous long-form automotive reviews. Here they review the Tipo sedan, albeit with the 'wrong' engine (neither the 1.4 t-jet multiair+ddct nor the multijet diesels+ddct, but the brazilian 1.6 Etorq.)

    What virtues for the price! Don't know about the sedan version but imo the hatch/sw in crossover/Allroad/Adventure/Avventura avatar would do very splendidly for India, priced say like a duster or an SCross, a tad below the overpriced and over-rated Hyundai Creta?

    Yeah well: the 4-star and the 5-star are entirely a function of active safety features. 3 stars is excellent in passive safety terms, under the new, more demanding criteria of euro-ncap.

    This is also due to cost/price-positioning, really. Euro-for-euro it falls exactly between the Dacia-s and Skoda-s and Hyundai-s below it and the Focus/Golf/Astra etc above it: even in terms of safety ratings (according to euro-ncap, that is)

    The platform and architecture is the same as the 4/5 star rated but notably pricier 500X and Renegade as well as (no doubt) the new Jeep Compass that we're getting in India, after all.

    btw, the new Alfa Romeo 'Giorgio' platform/architecture is the world's safest: the Giulia's ultra-lightweight yet ultra-stiff and strong chassis and crash structure is by a distance the best among its peers (bmw 3 series, merc c-classe, audi a4, jaguar xe, volvo s60.)
