T
he 1248cc, in-line four-cylinder Multijet engine is Fiat's brainchild.

The Vista is a good all-round hatchback, popular for its space and rugged underpinnings, adding to which is, of course, the Multijet engine that produces the same numbers as it does on the Swift.

The Manza gets the 88.7 bhp version of the engine, given that it is one of the larger cars in its segment and it's an able performer, if not a scorcher.

The Beat's 936cc diesel motor produces 58.5 bhp and 15.2 kgm of torque, which is adequate for urban use, although it definitely feels short on grunt on the highway.

That said, GM is all-set to launch the upcoming Enjoy MPV (which will compete with the likes of the Toyota Innova - at least on the price point) with the Multijet engine and also their soon-to-be-launched Sail hatchback and sedan, which will compete with the Maruti Suzuki Swift and Dzire.
