The Tipo family has been expanded by the arrival of a new body. Fiat is now launching the New Tipo Cross, to add to its other three body variants (4-door, 5-door and Station Wagon): a veritable crossover, aimed at a completely new target audience. Families – the long-standing customer base for the Fiat Tipo – have changed their preferences, leaving behind conventional 5-door cars and Station Wagons to come closer to the world of crossovers, without sacrificing space and comfort. The same families are now ready to experience a more emotive, distinctive, dynamic and young car, while still at an affordable price. The Tipo Cross, “Fiat’s new family crossover”, is the answer. Overall, the Tipo Cross is structured decidedly more powerfully and boldly. At first glance, the car is clearly broader, with the new design of the grille that extends below the headlights, and is patently taller: a true crossover.
Vayyar’s industry-first in-cabin safety solution
Vayyar, the global leader in 4D imaging radar, is advancing its mission of protecting every life on the road with the auto industry’s first in-cabin safety ‘combo’ solution. Powered by a single sensor, it’s designed to prevent both the “hot car” incidents that have claimed the lives of thousands of children as well as the countless deaths and injuries caused by vehicle occupants neglecting to wear seat belts. By providing OEMs and Tier 1s multifunctionality on a single-chip platform, Vayyar is ensuring affordable, leading-edge safety for all vehicle models. As part of the global effort to improve in-car safety, Euro NCAP is introducing stricter scoring criteria across all protocols, starting in 2023. Child Presence Detection (CPD) will be worth up to four points, while the existing requirement for front and rear Seat Belt Reminders (SBR) will become a precondition for achieving three additional Occupant Status (OS) points. Vayyar’s solution enables vehicles to earn these crucial seven safety points, while enhancing user experience by minimizing false alarms.
The sixth generation of Porsche Communication Management (PCM) launches in the Porsche 911, Cayenne and Panamera models this summer.
