Fiat's 1.4-liter turbocharged Multiair powerplant wins "Best New Engine of 2010" award
Fiat's award-winning 1.4-liter turbocharged MultiAir powerplant churns out 170 horsepower in the Alfa Mito. As Fiat knows, power isn't everything and quite often, efficiency is even more important. The 1.4-liter engine benefits from MultiAir technology which boosts power over a conventional engine by ten percent, increases torque by 15 percent and improves fuel economy by up to ten percent, while also reducing CO2 emissions by 10 percent. In the Alfa Mito, Fiat's 1.4-liter mill manages to return nearly 40 miles per gallon, while offering performance on par with a V6 engine. Fiat trounced the competition this time around and was deservedly awarded the "Best New Engine of 2010" title, which makes us giddy as we await Fiat's MultiAir debut in the U.S.
