The Tipo family targets the heart of the market by offering the most modern active and passive safety devices. Standard features include six airbags and a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS).

Also standard is electronic stability control (ESC), an effective but non-invasive driving aid. This sophisticated system helps to maintain steering control under extreme conditions, such as on wet, snow-covered or icy roads, or when tackling tight corners or making sudden emergency manoeuvres. The ESC system checks numerous parameters such as wheel rotation speed, lateral acceleration and steering angle. If the driver exceeds the performance limits for the road conditions, causing the vehicle to oversteer or understeer, the system intervenes by braking one or more wheels so as to maintain stability. The ESC system includes a number of devices including Panic Brake Assist (PBA), which intervenes in case of emergency braking by increasing the braking force; ABS; traction control (TCS), which detects wheel slip under acceleration and intervenes by reducing engine torque; and Hill Start Assist, which maintains brake pressure for approximately two seconds after the driver releases the pedal.

Also available are Cruise Control and Adaptive Cruise Control, which uses a radar mounted at the front of the vehicle to detect obstacles in the car's path. The system reverts to the set speed if the road ahead is clear. Whenever a car is detected, the system maintains the safety distance preselected by the driver, automatically adapting the speed to the car ahead.

An important driver assistance system is Full Brake Control, which automatically brakes the car to avoid accidents if the driver takes no action: it is an active system because it intervenes directly, rather than simply warning the driver of an imminent hazard. Among its advantages are a significant reduction in the severity of impacts and a consequent reduction in repair costs.

The system uses radar and thus operates in all weather and lighting conditions, at a vehicle speed of 6 km/h or more.

Finally, comfort and safety are assured by equipment such as rear parking sensors and a rear camera, which returns crystal-clear reversing images on the UconnectTM screen, not forgetting the rain and dusk sensors and electrochromatic rearview mirror.
