New 1.3 multijet 90bhp engine

As promised in earlier threads, the 1.3 90bhp multijet is on it's way as a more powerful option for the new Punto (along with the current 70bhp unit) and as an entry (I suspect) to the Stilo range. I doubt the Panda will get it though...

Anyway, it's first application is in the Vauxhall Astra (General Motors, Vauxhall's parent company, buy Fiat/ Alfa diesels in a deal that harks back to the recently termintated collaboration work) and I enclose a link to a test undertaken by MSN. Doesn't obviously give an indication of a Fiat car, but does give an indication of how the engine performs in an Astra which weighs roughly the same as a Stilo. The Punto will be quicker because of it's lower weight.

MSN Test of Astra 1.3CDTi 16v

The fact that GM are using these engines in their advertising and practically claiming that they developed them never fails to annoy me. These are Fiat engines 100%.

Cool Re: New 1.3 multijet 90bhp engine

I thought they were co-developed, but that Fiat were the only company actually building them (for Fiat, GM and Suzuki). GM are due to be getting a plant to produce them as well before long. It's got to have helped Fiat by selling the engines they've built at some kind of profit.

I wonder what else the 90bhp version will make its way into? Corsa, Tigra...

Almost positive a Panda at my local stealership had a Multijet badge on it and that was two weeks ago.

It's the 70bhp version in the Panda. The engine on test in the Astra is the 90bhp version

I see, didn't know there was two versions, the Panda could benefit from this especially the 4x4.
