For power without compromising on economy, look no further than the 1.3 MultiJet II engine. It’s for sale in the 2018 Punto Easy and GBT variants, and differs from its petrol alternatives by delivering greater torque, compression ratios and power output. A revision of the popular Common Rail system, the MultiJet II reconfigures the way diesel is injected into the engine, increasing the injections from five to eight per cycle. But what does all this mean for you? Well, greater fuel economy for one thing, as well as boosted performance and unrivalled power. The Punto 1.3 MultiJet II is a seriously impressive feat of engineering, built for endurance and fit for the driver who wants to go faster and further for a great deal less.
True to the marque’s unfailing commitment to minimising CO2 emissions, Fiat has also considered the environment carefully in this engine’s design. The 2018 1.3 MultiJet II boasts 20% less nitrogen oxide emissions, and a record-breaking CO2 emission rate of just 90g/km.
When it comes to key performance statistics, the new MultiJet II diesel never fails to raise a smile. 0-60 is achievable in just 13.1 seconds, and the top speed is a staggering 107 miles per hour – ten miles faster than it’s petrol equivalent. But the area where the MultiJet II truly excels is in fuel consumption – or lack thereof. When you go for an Easy or GBT with the diesel engine, you can look forward to more than 80 miles to the gallon, with a tank range of 799 miles. Impressive, we know.
