Coming from an 8v Grande Punto to the new MultiAir 16v EVO.

I can say I'd have not bought an 8v EVO EVER, personally.

2 reasons. Economy after a 2800 mile run in is sooooo much better than the 8v and the extra boost in power and overtaking ability is really important for me.

The 8v needs to be hammered for barely any grunt, in my opinion, but the MultiAir has this surge of torque like a diesel at low revs which is satisfying.

But my engine is underporforming due to a headgasket fualt, so when it's fixed ... WOOP I'll be flying lol

But when your spending over 12k for a new car the extra for the MultAir is barely anything or equivalent in price is quitting smoking lol or cheaper food which I'd have anyday for the MultiAir over the 8V.
