What makes the 1.4L MultiAir® Turbo engine so powerful and efficient? Here’s a quick rundown of what puts the pep in the 124 Spider’s step, and the benefits of the engine.
Benefits of the 1.4L MultiAir Turbo engine
The 1.4L MultiAir Turbo engine is about more than having fun zipping down the road — though that’s a big part of it. The engine is also powerful and efficient, and reduces emissions when compared to other “non-MultiAir” equipped engines. Here are the MultiAir benefits you can expect:
How does the All-New 2017 FIAT 124 Spider do it?
- Boosted engine power
- Increased torque
- Improved efficiency
- Reduced HC and CO2 emissions
- Improved response across the entire speed range
The 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo engine on the All-New 2017 FIAT 124 Spider is designed to take full advantage of the exclusive MultiAir valve train system and includes a host of new engine components designed for reduced friction to enhance performance and efficiency.
MultiAir is based on direct control of the intake air supply. This is done, cylinder-by-cylinder and stroke-by-stroke, by significantly reducing dependence on a throttle valve for airflow control. This proven technology is designed to simply and effectively vary the amount of time the intake valves are open and the amount of air/fuel charge that is let into the cylinder.
The idea is similar to variable valve timing systems, except that MultiAir can adapt to any situation and individually tune each cylinder if necessary. And the idea is to put you, the driver, in full control of a vehicle that’s designed to own the road and to move in style.
