1.4 T Jet engine petrol

Hi everyone
Does anyone own a 1.4 t jet engine (petrol) Tipo? Just wonder what they thought of the performance.
Thanks

Re: 1.4 T Jet engine petrol

I've owned a t-jet sw for the last six months and previously owned a Grande Punto T-jet for 9 years. Performance isn't much different between the two. Both perform similar to an 80s hot hatch so probably quick enough for today's roads!

Re: 1.4 T Jet engine petrol

I've just test driven one of these today..

To me it seemed underpowered and a bit gutless. I'm used to driving turbo cars you can feel boost on the tipo didn't really seem to have a turbo. Revved lots but couldn't really feel a sweet spot in the rev range. Not for me.

The handling left a lot to be desired too felt like if you chucked it round a bend to hard the back wheel would fold under the car. This was the estate version though.
