1.3 jtdm horsepower - 90 or 95 hp?

Hey everyone!

I am very pleased to write in this forum, as I will be soon the owner of a MiTo!

My MiTo will be powered with the 1.3 jtdm diesel engine. What I am not understanding is how much power does will it be able to develop?

In some brochures and web sites I have read 90hp whereas in others I have been finding 95hp. At first, I thought this would be related to the differences between the British and Metric horsepower slight difference. However, while reading wikipedia about the MiTo, I have found that there are in fact two versions: the 90 hp (66 kW) and the 95 hp (70 kW).

Despite the fact that these differences are kind of irrelevant, can anyone please comment about this issue? I would like to know why they "upgraded" (meaning also more stress into the engine) and how are they achieving this (electronically, new turbo?).

Cheers!

I am not 100% sure but the 95hp in the MiTo should be Multijet 2...

Thanks kgb. After your post, I read about Multijet II that was "released" by Fiat in 2009. Although I haven't been able to make a deeper search (I am at work, lol!), your reply fits and makes full sense.

Thank you very much. I am elucidated right now, but others may keep posting if they like to add something else.

Theres 4 versions of the 1.3 JTD-70, 75, 90 and 105. The Mito only got the 90 (-why not the 105?!)

The 1.3 JTD 90 has just been upgraded-more power, lower emissions etc to 95PS, so it depends when you ordered yours as to which one you get.

If its badged "JTDm" then could be the 95
