The Tipo will be positioned above the next-gen Punto and the next-gen Linea

The Tipo is not the replacement for Punto in India or other markets, but a successor to the Fiat Bravo premium hatchback in some International markets. The next-gen Punto is codenamed ‘X6H’, while the Linea is codenamed as ‘X6S’. Some reports suggest that the successor won’t retain the Punto nameplate instead be branded as the ‘Super Palio’.

So even if the Tipo gets launched in India in 2018, it will have a head-on rival Toyota Yaris which too is scheduled to launch same year. Also it would be interesting to see how Fiat would price and position the Tipo for the Indian market.
