Default Fiat India testing 1.4L Multiair Engine with Dual Clutch AT

As per a recent article at MotorOctane, Fiat India has been testing the 1.4 litre MultiAir Engine in India for quite some time now and will be using the same in the upcoming Jeep 551 SUV which will be manufactured at the company's Ranjangaon plant and will be exported to different countries. The engine produces 165 bhp of power and 250 NM Torque mated to a Dual Clutch transmission.

The new Jeep 551 is based on the Fiat's SCA (Small Car Architecture) platform which is also being used for the next generation Punto and Linea. The plant is already under expansion and the company will soon be launching it's Jeep Range in India, the media has already received the vehicles for testing purposes.

So, Finally the folks are bringing in the MultiAir Engine to India, hope it makes it way in the next generation Fiat Punto and Linea which will be introduced in 2018.

Fiat has been testing the 1.4-litre MultiAir in India. This engine produces 165bhp of power and comes with a dual clutch transmission. The Italian automaker is testing this powertrain in India. Our sources confirm that the tests for MultiAir have been going on for a while, and we had reported about this last time as well.
The Fiat MultiAir engine will be used on the new Jeep 551. This new SUV will be manufactured in the company’s Ranjangaon plant and will be exported to different countries. Fiat will soon have the Jeep range officially launched in India. This will be adding a lot more value to the company’s portfolio. Jeep will have a range of new petrol and diesel engines on offer and a set of new transmissions too. Fiat is also working on a new set of products for the Indian car market that will be launched by 2018. This should have a new hatchback, sedan and even a compact SUV too. All will be based on the Small Car Architecture (SCA) platform for India. This is the same platform used for the Punto and the Linea. However, now it gets some changes on it. Even the new Jeep 551 is built on the same platform.
