Blue&Me™ TomTom

[Blue&Me TomTom]

The Eco and GSI functions show you the right road and the best way to drive it: in addition to the normal infotainment functions (radio/CD, hands-free telephone, navigator and trip computer), the system displays GSI indications and eco:Drive information. All of this without ever lifting your hands from the wheel.

Dualogic gearbox

[Dualogic gearbox]

This is a robotised gearbox with clutch and gear selection managed by an electronic control unit (implemented automatically by electro-hydraulic actuators): gear selection is always optimal and you do not need to use the clutch.

Select your driving style with Dualogic to optimise either performance or efficiency. You can switch from automatic operation to manual mode at any time with a flick of the gearstick.

EasyPower LPG

Original equipment LPG: the system is designed, made and guaranteed by Fiat with original equipment quality and safety.

GSI

In models with manual gearbox, the gear shift indicator suggests the best gear for a more efficient use of the engine in terms of fuel consumption and CO2.

Heritage

1987
Croma: direct injection diesel engine

Croma was the first saloon in the world to fit a direct injection diesel engine. The device contributed to saving 15% fuel compared to other diesel engines and 30% compared to petrol engines of corresponding size.

1990
Panda Elettra the Fiat mass electric car

Panda Elettra was the first Fiat mass electric car. This limited edition model fitted a 12.5 HP engine and weighed 1150 kg.

1997
Marea Bi-fuel

Marea was the first car to fit a double petrol/methane fuel supply system. The tank was fitted in the boot.

Common Rail

One rail to deliver very high pressure fuel to the cylinders and single electronically controlled injectors. Fitted on Marea 1.9 JTD 105 HP, the system would soon become the standard in the automotive industry as a whole.

2003
Multijet

MultiJet, the second generation Common Rail, allows multiple injection (up to five for each cycle) and a significant noise reduction by adopting a different fuel pre-injection strategy. It was fitted on Punto 1.2 for the first time.

Ethanol fuels

Tetra Fuel, the evolution of Flex Fuel, can run on four different fuels: petrol, ethanol, gasoline and methane. Petrol and ethanol are not alternatives, as in other petrol/methane Bi-fuel engines, but are mixed together in the same tank. It was fitted on Palio for the first time in 2006.

Robotised gearbox

This technology was developed by the Group back in 1999. A robotised gearbox is a mechanical gearbox with an electronic clutch and shifting management system. The first Fiat to fit one was the Panda in 2004.

2009
Multijet II

The next-generation common rail acquires a different hydraulic balancing servo valve for more flexible injections (up to 8 for each cycle), also due to the Injection Rate Shaping system which optimises fuel injection.

MultiAir

First in the world, Fiat introduced an electro-hydraulic system also on very compact engines for managing air intake by means of electro-hydraulic actuators instead of the throttle. The system adjusts intake valve opening and eliminate pumping and energy loss. It was first fitted on FIRE 1.4 engines.

2010
TwinAir

The most eco-friendly petrol engine in the world with MultiAir technology applied to downsizing taken to its extreme: two cylinders instead of four. A turbocharged engine of only 99 cc capable of delivering 85 HP and only 92 g of CO2/km (MTA version): low consumption and emissions.

I-Efficiency

[i-Efficency]
Engine and Transmission
Lower friction

To increase duration and efficiency while reducing wear: optimised slip, low-friction flexible gas rings, low-viscosity engine and gearbox oil and a variable displacement oil pump.

Warm-up management

For adjusting the measurement of various injections more accurately: electronically controlled thermostat (friction is higher when the engine is cold and consequently a cold engine consumes more and pollutes more).

Smart engine power management

To optimise all uses: eco mode to optimise delivery and reduce consumption and emissions and an energy-efficient climate control system to avoid wasting power.

Vehicle
Aerodynamics

To overcome air friction and control lift: spoilers, aerodynamic appendices under the body and vehicle geometry.

Tyres

To reduce contact resistance with the ground, limit noise and prevent generation of fine dust: low rolling coefficient tyres.

Noise and vibration reduction

To prevent generation of noise and to absorb it when it cannot be avoided: injector covers, high-damping tyres and high-efficiency soundproofing features (windscreen with soundproofing PVB, breathable roof, foam-filled front for A segment).

All these features contribute to better comfort, quiet running and on-board soundproofing.

Smart alternator

Recharge the car battery when braking: this device increases voltage when braking and decelerating with a gear engaged allowing a supplementary battery recharge.

Results include less engine load during normal operation and saves fuel.

Methane

The most eco-friendly fuel and the only real alternative to petroleum derivates. Methane reduces all emissions (-23% CO2 compared to petrol), including chemical compounds, such as benzene and most reactive hydrocarbons which promote the formation of ozone.

Bio-methane is a potential renewable source and is much cheaper than other fuels. What’s more, you can freely access areas with environmental traffic restrictions. The Fiat methane range is the largest in the world today : five models to choose from.

MultiAir engine

[MultiAir]

The revolutionary advanced engine intake valve management system. The secret of MultiAir is variable valve opening, which enables accurate engine air intake control, reducing consumption and improving top performance and fun behind the wheel.

For the first time ever, instead of the throttle, air intake was managed by electro-hydraulic actuators which control intake valve opening in a petrol engine: the amount of air depends on how much each valve opens, cylinder by cylinder, revolution by revolution.

MultiJet engine

[MultiJet]

The next-generation Common Rail ensures better fuel injection management increasing injections from 5 to 8 for each engine cycle (multiple injections in less time).

Quieter than the previous version, Multijet II lets you save up to 3% on fuel and up to 20% on nitrogen oxide emissions.

Eco Turbo

This small-sized turbocharger modulates air flow at low rpm more efficiently: your driving pleasure is enhanced, thanks to 20% more torque - and it produces 3% less fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, by extending the gearbox ratios.

Start&Stop

[Start&ampStop]

An innovative, efficient system which stops the engine when it is not needed - for example when standing at traffic lights or in queues, and starts it up again when it is time to set off.

Furthermore, the system recognises intermittent queues and is automatically deactivated.

It turns itself back on after reaching a speed of 10 km/h.

With Start&Stop you can considerably reduce CO2 emissions and fuel consumption.

Traction plus

With respect to mechanical or hydraulic self-locking differentials, electronic differential lock management avoids the extra weight and friction with consequently higher fuel consumption and emissions.

Excellent handling on slippery or rough terrain.

Turbo methane

Turbo-downsizing applied to methane-fuelled engines increases combustion and reduces CO2 emissions by 33% compared to petrol. More range and more fun.

[TwinAir - logo]

Twin Air engine

[TwinAir]

Two cylinders as efficient as four.

TwinAir is the epitome of downsizing: not only is the engine smaller but it even has fewer cylinders. Air treatment is maximised: MultiAir, turbocharger and optimised fluid-dynamics.

With TwinAir you can cut fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 30%, while maintaining equal performance.

What would the world be like with TwinAir? Think Twin!

Turbo-downsizing

The combination of a turbocharger with a much smaller engine (downsizing) decreases CO2 emissions and consumption, while delivering the same power and increasing fun behind the wheel.
