Fiat Multijet Wins Engine Of The Year Award

Fiat multijet diesel wins engine of the year award
6th June 2005

The jury of the International Engine of the Year Awards has elected the 1.3 litre MultiJet turbodiesel engine produced by Fiat and GM as International Engine of the Year 2005 in the 1.0-1.4-litre category.

The Fiat-GM 1.3 diesel engine won the award ahead of the Honda 1.3 litre IMA, Peugeot-Citroen/Ford Diesel 1.4 litre, Volkswagen 1.4 litre FSI, Toyota Diesel 1.4 litre, and Daihatsu 1.3 litre engines.

The International Engine of the Year jury, which comprises 56 of the world’s most respected motoring journalists from 26 countries in the world, judged every single engine in mass-production that is installed in a car on sale in more than one country. The list included almost 60 new engines that have come to market in the last 12 months.

The 1.3 Polish-built common rail diesel engine features MultiJet technology that was developed at the Fiat Research Centre. MultiJet uses electronic control to divide the main injection into several smaller ones to achieve quieter combustion, reduced emissions and increased performance.

I love my MultiJet, but it's a 1.9 with only 8 valves.

Re: Fiat Multijet Wins Engine Of The Year Award

No, they have a 3.0 v6 diesel....

The 1.7 was their main engine for a while, as used by Volvo I believe in the 340 and 440, in the R11, R19 and R21 and as you say the higher models of R5.

I thought you were talking about diesels only, which correctly as you say are 1.5 (in Clio, megane and scenic etc. either in 65/80/100BHP spec) 1.9 (in laguna, espace, scenic, megane in 120BHP spec) and 2.2 (I believe 130/150/170BHP? in laguna, espace, vel satis, avantime) and the 3.0 V6 (in avantime and vel satis, 180BHP).

Petrol currently they do a 1.2 8v, 1.2 16v, 1.4 16v, 1.6 16v, 1.8 16v, 2.0 16v, 2.0 low pressure turbo, 165BHP, 2.0 high pressure turbo, 3.5 v6 with 245BHP

We have owned serveral R21s of 1.7 (GTS) spec and one of 2.0 (GTX)
