Re: 1.6multijet engines

Think I would have established that first before buying TBH but there isnt any reason the 1.6 16v MJet shouldnt be any good...

Re: 1.6multijet engines

the 1.4 16v 90bhp is a reali nice car dont get me wrong just thought i would change for faster car and will be able to remap the engine of the multijet to around 160bhp.

Re: 1.6multijet engines

Yep, since it is the 90bhp version, it makes sense...

Re: 1.6multijet engines

My father-in-law has a 1.6 multijet bravo (58-plate 120 dynamic) with the 16v FPT diesel engine.

Having driven it back-to-back with my 1.9 mJet 120, I would make the following notes:
1.6 engine is much quieter and less clattery at idle,
Both take ages to warm up but 1.6 does seem to get there a bit quicker,
Closer gear spacing on the 6 speed box (only 5 in my 1.9) gives strong acceleration that pretty much matches the 1.9,
Fuel economy seems pretty equal at the moment - around 48mpg in mixed use,
Road tax is the same (120 a year) unless you have ordered the Eco version.

Overall I would recommend the 1.6MJet but would (and will eventually) actually spend my own cash on the new 2.0 165bhp version.
