The new engine, developed by Fiat Powertrain Technologies (FPT), blends lower emissions, reduced noise and fuel consumption with increased acceleration and power.

Developing 70kW of power and 200Nm of torque, the 1.3-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine is capable of taking the MiTo from rest to 100km/h in 11.6 seconds while also achieving a combined cycle fuel consumption figure of just 4.3L/100km and a CO2 emissions number of 112g/km - making it fully compliant with strict Euro 5 emissions legislation.

To further bolster MiTo's environmental credentials, the 1.3 MultiJet II engine comes standard with Start&Stop technology, a second-generation Variable Vane Geometry turbocharger and features a Diesel Particulate Filter.
