IS MULTIJET CAUSE OF FIAT FAILIURE

Recommended Posts

Palio multijet was and is a great car. But the 1.3 litre multjet may have led to its failure, because fiat started sourcing these engines to tata, maruti etc.

And sadly, these engines worked better in Swift and Vista than in Palio , thus customers preferred them over palio. If fiat had not sourced these engines, there situation would be much better and palio would be reckoned as a good car.

The swift dzire sales are also totally dependent on the diesel DDiS. Petrol is not so great. The dzire began selling in great nos in ts first month, much to the credit of the diesel. It may be too early to comment, but linea being an excellent VFM, it mst sell in better numbers. If Dzire did not have multijet, linea would be selling better than Dzire, because its just much better.

This might have been cause of fiat failure over the last 3 years. But looks like fiat will change it forever this year.

Multijet is great technology developed by FIAT.

Because of their bad economy they sold this technology to Suzuki, GM and they are making the same engines in their plant. And fiat made agreement with TATA to supply this engine from their powertrain plant.

 

But engine & engine technoly only given to others. Gear box is developped by individual companies. In that suzuki made perfect partner for this multijet engine and extracted the best output. That's why Swift won in the contest.

Linea is a segment above so dont see much dent in Dzire sales even if it came without MJD. The main reason Palio MJD didnt sell was Fiat didnt market it too well, They didnt spruce up the most outdated interiors and by then Fiat had just begun their alliance with Tata and so people were preferring to wait and watch .

Fiat did make good money in selling engines. But they need to  buck up in their A.S.S. then they can target more volumes.

fiat should be worship the grande punto and 500 cause these cars saved fiat from bankruptcy !!!!

 

sorry to say but its not their cars who saved them but the modern tech diesel engines which rescued them going bankruptcy, yes what now to look at is their upcoming models which might grow them further up on positives along with better ASS.

I would say combination of Punto with MJD was the one which saved them. GP has done wonders for Fiat. Anyways sorry for going OT. Back to the discussion.
