The Fiat Tempra is a medium family car produced by Italian automaker Fiat from 1990 to 1998. The Tempra was intended as a replacement for the Fiat Regata,

History

The Tempra was introduced in February 1990 and was developed alongside the Alfa Romeo 155 and Lancia Dedra on the Fiat Tipo platform (which was a small family car). The car was primarily available as a four-door saloon and five-door estate, though a two-door saloon and a 2.0 DOHC turbocharged version was also offered in Brazil. In Europe, the Tempra was aimed at the competitive large family car market, which was at that time dominated by the Opel Vectra, Peugeot 405 and the Ford Sierra. The car was competitively priced and was generally considered a budget alternative to other more established cars in the sector, though some luxury features, such as a digital instrument cluster, were available.

1991 saw the addition of a four-speed automatic transmission to the 2.0ie model, with switchable modes (normal or sport), whilst the 2.0ie station wagon was also available with a full-time four-wheel drive system in 1992, the latter also featuring ventilated discs at the front, solid discs at the rear and ABS. The Tempra was extensively revised in 1993 when a new grille was adopted, alongside improvements to the passive safety such as side-impact bars, a strengthened floorpan and bulkhead and other improvements. More changes came a year later when the model naming system was changed, and a multi-point fuel-injected 1.6 L SOHC engine (rated at 90 bhp) was introduced. Interior trim and equipment was improved and a driver's side airbag and ABS appeared on some models.

The Tempra was discontinued in Europe in 1995 and in Brasil in 1998 and replaced by the Fiat Marea, which was based on the platform of the Fiat Bravo small family car.
