But is it "big" enough to last for 6-7 years and not to "wear and tear".

thanks for the good wishes
being a "modern" design,

it has Dual Mass Flywheel = like a diesel

Cam-chain = more expensive to change than a belt.. but being twincylinder should not be too complicated

turbo,
last for years if oil is kept clean

same with the multi-air unit

I've bought my Punto TA with the intention of 10 years 100K miles,

Re: Fiat 500L TwinAir engine pros and cons

Fiat are experts in small engine technology going back years. A lot of those old very small engine cars are still on the road. The Twin Air is 100kg lighter than the 1.6 diesel and is cheaper to buy and cheaper to service. Keep it well serviced and it should be fine. My wife has one and in 6th gear it flies along on the motorway. We're pleased with it. I don't plan on towing a caravan or a load of sand!
