The latest of the 1.3 MultiJet engine – the MultiJet II – is now available in different output levels: from the variants with fixed geometry turbocharger that provide from 70 to 75 hp, to more high-performance variable geometry turbocharger versions that return from 85 to 95 hp.

The 1.3 MultiJet is fitted on several units in the vehicle range of the Fiat Group: Fiat Panda, Fiat Punto, Chrysler Ypsilon, Alfa Romeo MiTo, Fiat Qubo, Fiat Doblò, Fiat Strada, Fiat Fiorino and Fiat 500 and 500L. The engine is also fitted in other models by other carmakers. The Bielsko-Biała plant’s 5,000,000th engine, an 85-hp 1.3 MultiJet will power a Fiat 500L -- the new Fiat City Lounge.

The production milestone at the Bielsko-Biała plant also underscores the production qualities of the Fiat Powertrain Technologies Poland plant that has adopted the WCM (World Class Manufacturing) rules, which is considered as the international methodology for the organization of the production process in line with the highest standards at an international level.
