This is build in Dundee, Michigan? Only one state away from me. This is truly one of the most fascinating engines I have ever seen. What power it must have at 101 HP! I'm also amazed that it gets 30+MPG. This refutes the idea that sports cars cannot be practical. :)

its, a great motor. saying it can get 30+ mpg and 30 miles a gallon in the city is great, so it makes it easy on the wallet no matter where you drive it.

Yes, very impressive engine. It has all the power you would need. I'm not ready to purchase a new Fiat yet but if I were I might consider one with an engine like this. I really want to get more serious about racing.

Did you hear, that Toyota said that will get better mpg from a avalon than this 1.4 multair from a fiat 500. If its true fiat will have to up the mpg

so what do you guys think is this engine the best on the US market for its size? lots of people say that its sound good on MPG, but the power sounds weak 101hp only? so what do you guys think? I am hoping that they tweat it maybe 110HP would be good. I think the 0-60 should be 8.0.

I think there is a fine balance between drivability, reliability, and things such as mpg. I think the multiair strikes that nice balance.

I think they should up the power a little bit, a and mpg a tad. 34/45 even for the auto

The cold air intake and exhaust would do that but the stock car has to be mild to appeal to the average driver. There are also chip mods available to give a bit more power.

I think the key of what you said is it has to appeal to the average driver. On the other hand, of course the professional or dedicated semi-professionals (which I am not) would find this beneficial.

I thought about upgrading my engine. My car is used, but it's not old. Therefore, I hope this one is compatible with mine.
