Re: Another Face lift eh

Why not the 130bhp multijet used in the Grande Punto?

Re: Another Face lift eh

its kind of strange that they bought in a 120bhp mjtd and then it says they are continuing with the 115bhp jtd That 380NM of torque cant be bad though

Bigger engine = more expensive to buy = less customers

Simple as

Fiat must envisage not selling many of these within the UK hence not bringing in the engine although it is still a shame i guess. I dont know the actual figures of stilo diesel sales within UK, but if its not perhaps as big of a performer as expected, or is like steady sales but not spectacular then i suppose its not economically good for fiat to bring it in.

And seen as though fiat auto made a profit for the first time in a while, why change a current winning formula

Re: Another Face lift eh

It's the same size engine, I expect (though don't know) that the MJTD in the stilo UK is the same as other stilos just demapped? Maybe not, I don't know, I bet Nige does (or JTD monkey).

And your equation doesn't tell the whole picture, offering a higher spec engine can open up more customers, not lose existing possible ones. Most competitors I expect offer 'high' spec engines, the megane has the 150bhp 2.0 dci, the VW has similar etc. etc.

Thats what im trying to say, the customers can consider other makes and models, they will have more choice if they brought it in. Although they could gain, i would say they would loose more.

But the main thing is they made profit overall, so why change a winning formula?

Maybe it will be out in the new stilo in a years time and they are teasing us.

And renault meganes diesel is 1.9 not 2.0 and 130bhp not 150bhp

Re: Another Face lift eh

Erm, no, the dci comes in 1.5, 1.9, 2.0 and 2.2. The new 2.0 is 150bhp, trust me....

You have a choice in the Megane of 1.5dci (86/106) 1.9dci (130 - may still have the 120, not sure) and 2.0dci (150)

How can you say they would lose more, you are mearly guessing out of nowhere?
