The 1248cc, in-line four-cylinder Multijet engine is Fiat’s brainchild. Ironically, it was first introduced in India in the Maruti Suzuki Swift back in 2007, and the Multijet’s balanced combination of power and efficiency was an instant hit, a fact endorsed by the number of vehicles that employ this engine — nearly a dozen! Fiat uses this engine in the Punto and the Linea. The Multijet engine is available in two power ratings on the Punto and the Linea – 75 and 91.7 bhp (the latter is called the ‘Advanced Multijet’). It’s the latter powerplant that’s livelier to drive, although Fiat’s popular engine somehow performs better in cars outside of the brand.
