    Fiat 500 1.4 multjet to the us?



    I have heard talk about bring the diesel engine to the us since the jetta tdi is selling well. What do you guys think? Tell me about why or why not. I think if they do its going to be a different motor than in eu.

    I personally always thought of diesel as dirty. That's why is the cheapest fuel on the market. However, semis use it. I prefer a car that runs on more cleaner, more efficient fuel.

    well, really I read a website that said it it burn cleaner than the Gas version, plus it get way better MPG about 20-40% better. you could possible get 60 MPG EPA on the highway. Fiat said that the new mult-jet II is about 15 % more power and 10 % mpg than the Multjet 1. so I have heard that if the multjet II comes to the USA it would look like this EPA 53 MPG city and 61 MPG highway. Also I would expect that it were to have 95-101 HP and about 160 lbs. Plus one thing you dont think about is that the engine last a bit longer than, a gas car. but with fiat techonlogy diesel will be under $20k.

    Diesel may seem dirtier. However, as far as I understand they now have more advanced catalytic converters for this type of engine now. Thus, they supposedly emit less chemicals into the air.

    I prefer unleaded and/or part ethanol gas over diesel. However, sometimes the engines of diesel sound very cool.

    I agree that the diesel engine may not be as fuel efficient or as clean, although I also agree that advancements have been made in the catalytic converters installed on people's cars as someone else has mentioned.
