This comes as a surprise!

I only hope that it arrives before June. I was pursuing a GP MJD as our next car, now I am going to wait!

Thanks Naparajito!

According to some website-

One of the second-generation Multijet, multivalve turbo diesel engines, the new 1.6 Multijet has 4 cylinders in line, 16 valves, a displacement of 1598 cc with a bore of 79.5 mm and a stroke of 80.5 mm. Two different engines will be produced: the first with 105 bhp at 4000 rpm and torque of 290 Nm at 1500 rpm, the second with 120 bhp at 4000 rpm and torque of 300 Nm at 1500 rpm.

The engine is supercharged by an electronically-controlled fixed-geometry turbo compressor (for the 105 bhp version) or variable-geometry (for the 120 bhp), to enhance power output while providing very high torque even at low revs.

Compared to the well-known and very popular 1.9 Multijet 120 bhp, the 1.6 Multijet series represents an important step forward. There are improvements in terms of performance, comfort, emissions and running costs, and there are also considerable advantages: with the same power, torque is improved by almost 25% (1500 rpm) and consumption is reduced by 8% (measured on the NEDC cycle). The car is also noticeably more pleasurable to drive, mainly thanks to the torque available at low revs. These objectives have been achieved mainly thanks to the optimised combustion which exploits the potential of the new injectors to the full.

Another factor in the improved performance is the multi-injection system, with 1600 bar in the 1.6 Multijet (in both power versions). The injection adapts to the engine speed, thus optimising performance in terms of perceived power and driveability.

Power and torque at the top of its class

The 1.6 Multijet has outstanding torque output in absolute terms, all the more surprising if we consider the cylinder capacity: the torque of 290 Nm in the 1.6 105 bhp (no less than 300 Nm in the 1.6 120 bhp) makes this engine the top performer among engines with a cylinder capacity of 1.8 litres or less. If we consider the specific torque (divided by cylinder capacity), the 1.6 is the highest-performing engine in the category up to 200 bhp, with the sole exception of “super-sports” engines.

That’s not all. If we consider that the maximum torque is generated at just 1500 rpm, we can instantly see why the 1.6 Multijet is a revolution among modern diesel engines: none of its latest-generation counterparts can offer such high performance at such low revs. In short, the new 1.6 Multijet offers an exciting drive that is not easy to find anywhere else, as can be seen from the acceleration and pick-up values: compared to the excellent 1.9 120 bhp, the 1.6 120 bhp records the same acceleration value (0-100 kph in just 10.5 seconds), and more importantly the pick-up from 80-120 kph in 5th gear is almost 4 seconds less (over 1 second is gained in 6th gear).

Last but not least, the combination of the new injection system with the latest-generation turbos (fixed geometry on the 105 bhp and variable for the 120 bhp) rounds off a truly impressive technological set up. The new turbos use technical features and materials capable of supporting greater thermal and mechanical loads, enabling maximum performance together with total reliability.

wow, thats good news, I think they are testing this engine for quite long. We already have a thread http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...6-soon-18.html (Fiat Launching Linea 1.6 Soon!)

Fiat testing more powerful diesel Linea in India | Indian Autos blog

Fiat Linea 1.6 Multijet in India - Launch Date: Late 2011 - Upcoming Car - CarWale

Look like the news is true, hope 1.6 will have atleast 170mm GC similler to t-jet.

So finally this again becomes a level playing field. 1.6D, 16 inch alloys and the likes.
NFS (New Fiesta Sedan), ANHV (All new Honda Verna) and now ANFL (All new Fiat Linea!)

I am amazed and the sudden spurt in the choice of diesel options for by the next generation!

Punto with the same can also become a potential game changer.

But most important: Fiat should re-look at marketing and service strategy. They should come out of these alliances be there as an independent entity.
Else such new releases would become yet another new release.

The RB's 1.6 U2 CRDi is capable of 5 injections per cycle whereas the Linea's 1.6 MJD is capable of upto 8 injections per cycle. You know the result...all that 290 NM torque.

Great news at the right time. Just when my dad was thinking of getting a new sedan. He is a big Fiat lover and would surely jump with joy on hearing this news. The real Linea is around the corner. Definitely the new torque-king. Bring it fast Fiat !!

Linea JET in Bangalore costs 10.60 lacs. So how much the 1.6 MJD might cost? If it has all the goodies like JET, then 11.50 lacs or more I guess!!

If FIAT brings that in, then we have a great diesel Sedan in the 10L range. One with exceptional handling, ride and performance. Hope its the higher tuned (120bhp, 300nm) version.

The T-Jet's engine is imported, so that must be adding to the costs. Considering the diesel engines will be manufactured locally, my guess is it will be around the 10.5 range. Fiat better not price this over the Vento (with the zero aspirational value the brand has in India today).

Great. FIAT India is introducing great products every year, but doesn't get rewarded with sales numbers.

Along with the engine, Fiat should think of tuning the engine properly and also changing the gear box to enable the owner to have fun or it will very go the existing Linea way.

Absolutely. Folks here were asking for Tjet and when they did launch it, abolutely nothing has happened to sales, infact sales probably has gone down. I dont think the 1.6MJD is going to do wonders in terms of sales, but surely it would be one of the best diesel cars to drive.

Tata and Maruti can now start plonking this engine in some of their vehicles , say Kizashi and GV, Aria etc
