Fiat’s 1.4 MultiAir Engine wins Best New Engine of 2010 Award

The FPT 1.4 four-cylinder engine combines MultiAir, the electro-hydraulic management of the inlet valves, with a turbocharger, setting new efficiency standards.

Developed and manufactured by FPT – Fiat Powertrain Technologies – the 1.4 MultiAir Turbo engines, with power outputs ranging from 135 to 170 bhp, now equip the Alfa Romeo MiTo and Giulietta, as well as the Fiat Punto Evo and Abarth Punto Evo, and will soon be introduced to the Fiat Bravo.

The top of the range 170 bhp version, with 124 bhp/liter, has an outstanding specific power output which, combined with peak torque of 250 Nm, guarantees sporty performance, together with record-setting fuel consumption and emissions (134 g/km of CO2 in the new Alfa Romeo Giulietta).

The judges were predictably enamoured with a system that offers such impressive benefits. “Fiat’s MultiAir gives traditional internal combustion a breath of fresh air via an entirely new set of valvetrain strategies,” was the verdict of respected technical journalist, Dennis Simanaitis of Road & Track.

Fiat plans to roll MultiAir out across additional engine families. Next to benefit will be the eagerly anticipated two-cylinder turbo, which is on track to offer an astonishing 105bhp!
