new 1.6multijet debuts

fiat have finally released the 1.9JTDm replacment, the 1.6JTDm.
A new diesel engine initially for the Fiat Bravo
Fiat Bravo | First Drives | Car Reviews | Auto Express

"Compared with the current Fiat 1.9 MultiJet 120 bhp unit, the 1.6 MultiJet series represents an important step forward – with the same power, torque is improved by almost 25 per cent at 1500 rpm, and consumption is reduced by eight per cent."

"the 120bhp version offers more thrust at high speeds, as well as plenty of overtaking ability, accelerating from 50mph to 75mph four seconds faster than the 1.9-litre car which it replaces."

Re: new 1.6multijet debuts

Yup we are looking to replace our Stilo and had discounted the Bravo due to poor economy for the performance on the type of driving the missus typically does but this engine has brought it back into the running as being smaller capacity it should be better around town than her 1.9JTD but still a good cruiser for holidays etc.

Sounds like it might even be a performance upgrade for her. Just need to find out if the car is actually any good when I have a test drive and whether its worth the premium over its competitors.

Sounds good, should also be lighter as it's smaller.
