After the Fiat Punta 1.2, which has already been discussed, we decided to present you another member of the Punto family, and that is the diesel 1.3 multijet, which according to previous sales has proven to be better, but also much better than gasoline.
Production of the Fiat Punta 1.3 mjet began in 2003 and lasted until 2010, and brought a new generation of Punta to the car market, the third in a row, under whose hood is an excellent common-rail turbo diesel Multijet engine with 69 hp. This 1.3-liter engine proved to be much better than all previous four-cylinder diesel engines, because it allows you to achieve higher speeds than the competition. Also, economy and reliability, as well as favorable registration, due to the small cubic capacity, are the main reasons for its constant sales over the last ten years. Learn more about BMW.
