Evo diesels

Does anyone know if Fiat intend to fit the largher capacity diesels to the Evo with the Multiair system.
I really do not fancy "only "135bhp unless I have to buy an Abarth which in line with the general price hike could cost silly money

Re: Evo diesels

Theres a new Punto Evo section

I believe they will be fitting a 1.6 MultiJet 2 unit. Unlikely to have more than 135bhp

Diesels aren't getting MultiAir..... not in the near future anyway.

Re: Evo diesels

Although not yet on the Configurator or in the price list the Punto Evo 1.6 16v Multijet Sporting 3dr (no mention of BHP yet) has been listed on a few communications from FGAUK recently, so it looks as though it is definitely happening.

Re: Evo diesels

Well at least we should have a bit more serious grunt to play with hopefully.
I hope Fiat don't take too long to fit/develop Multiair for the larger capacity diesels as the Evo, particularly Sporting will be falling well behind some of its competitors in the power stakes.

They are not using Multiair on the diesels as D4nny8oy pointed out. They are however using Multijet 2

UK: Fiat to use Multiair to clean up diesels

10 March 2010 | Source: Tristan Young

Fiat Group is planning to use its variable hydraulic valve control system on diesel engines to help it meet Euro6 emissions legislation.

The technology badged 'Multiair' has so far only been put into production on a petrol engine, specifically its 1.4-litre unit. However the technology, developed in conjunction with Schaeffler Group, is suitable for all turbocharged engines.

Speaking exclusively to just-auto at the UK launch of the engine in the Alfa Romeo Mito, Massimo Fulfaro, the engineer in charge of the Multiair project, said: “Initially we may use it on the 1.6-litre diesel. In diesel the Multiair technology is more about emissions than economy. We could use it to help us meet Euro6 regulations.”
So far, Fiat Group has used Multiair technology in petrol engines to improve performance, emissions and economy.
“The technology is good enough so that we could meet the Euro6 regulations [in diesels] without the need for a particulate filter.”
Doing away with a particulate filter would more than offset the cost of the engine technology, according to Fulfaro. He also hinted that Fiat would use the technology for its large commercial vehicle engines.

Re: Evo diesels

If it helps, reading the punto evo manual (all cars are included in it)

it mentions a 1.6 MultiJet 120, which i haven't seen on any UK sites, so its either a to-be launched or a car thats simply not in the UK... eitherway..

Reading manual now quickly... will type as i see..

"Check rear disc brake pads (1.6 Multijet versions)"
torque: 320nm
Max speed: 190 (about 118mph)
Looks like 6 gears too
co2: 119 (Euro 5) ("1.4 Sporting Multiair Turbo" is 129)

My post wasn't directed at D4Nnny8oy. I quoted the OP, and posted a link to MultiJet2, backing up D4Nnny8oy. Whats wrong with that
