Fiat MultiJet

The four millionth 1.3 16v MultiJet engine left the Fiat Powertrain plant in Bielsko Biala, Poland, on Friday 4 February.

This achievement is a testimony to the great success that this remarkable small diesel engine has achieved since 2003, the year in which production began. It features the first ever application of MultiJet technology on a world-wide scale, and is an evolution of the Common Rail system invented by Fiat and put into production in 1997.

Constantly updated in terms of technological content, the 1.3 16v MultiJet (currently produced in its latest guise, known internationally as MultiJet II) has been awarded many prestigious accolades, including Engine of the Year (1.0-1.4 litre category) in 2005.

The engine is available with several power outputs: from 75 HP, with a fixed geometry turbocharger, to 85 HP and 95 HP, both with variable geometry turbochargers.

In all versions, the 1.3 MultiJet ensures high performance and low consumption as well as − thanks to its cutting-edge technology − long service intervals.

The 1.3 MultiJet is installed in a large number of Fiat Group Automobiles models, including the Fiat Panda, Punto Evo, Fiat Qubo and the Fiat 500. Indeed, it is in a Fiat 500 bound for a French customer that the four millionth MultiJet is to be installed, specifically a 95 HP Euro 5 specification unit.

Since 2008 the 1.3 16v MultiJet has also been produced at the Fiat Powertrain Technologies plant in Ranjangaon, India.
