Question Stilo 1.6 withdrawn?

Just looking around the Fiat site, and can no longer see a Stilo 1.6 in the showroom (only looked in the 3 door section), also the Dynamic trim has disappeared.
Anyone know if the 1.6 engine has been discontinued in the Stilo? I would have thought it would have been the most popular choice for the 'mainstream' driver.
If both the above are true, will owners of 1.6 3dr Dynamics (ie me) see the value of their cars plummet, or do you think they will become more sought after?

Looking at the Stilo count it looks like the most popular version so they'd be silly to drop it!

Ohh wait a sec it's FIAT we're talking about

Re: Stilo 1.6 withdrawn?

I mentioned this in the consumption thread (well one of the many!) the 1.6 on the 5 door been dropped and replaced with the 1.4 and on 3 door its now the 1.8 Sporting.

1.6 is continued on the multiwaggon. It hasnt been lost!

On the 5 door replacing it with the 1.4 is an ok option, it is almost as powerful as the 1.6 yet as economical was the 1.2 was.
Beleave the 3 door active uses the 1.4 as well

Re: Stilo 1.6 withdrawn?

1.6 might have been popular, but it was never the best engine in the range, and it was too close a competitor when the 1.2 was replaced by the 1.4.

No big loss though as the 1.4 is cheaper to both tax & insure(don't quote me on it, haha did you see what I did there! ) plus isn't it remapable? Just don't tell Bo!

The 1.6 engines were at least reliable and pulled well, especially above 3000 rpm.

Re: Stilo 1.6 withdrawn?

My 1.4 is good IMO. Haven't driven a 1.6 Stilo but my 1.4 goes better than the 1.7 diesel Astra I drive regularly, but nowhere near as quick as the 1.6 Petrol Astra, which I presume would be as powerful as the 1.6 Stilo?
