  1. No wonder Fiat makes the best diesel engines in the world which have high fuel efficiency and really long life. Not to mention their cars having an exceptional longevity: a proof seen in Mumbai roads still running the Premier Padmini.

    1. Italian craftsmenship is highly focused on great designs. Fiat’s companies also make high quality performance equipment OEM type for other premium brands as well. Think of Fiat as a car maker that tries to give it’s customers certain build quality, certain performance of german/european cars in the price bracket of Japanese passenger cars.

  2. I am willing to open a automobile industry .. i want 4 cylinder 2500cc engine for sedan… it must have a turbo charger… m looking to buy engine from fiat… m looking for some power full engines to my new coming car… is there any engine of 2.2 ,2.4,2l to creat such a boosting power? If u are interested , plz rpy to my email

  3. hi
    i have a car opel astra deisel 1.7 its too old 1999. i want to change its engine. plz guide me which engine i can buy n what cost will be ??

    1. Dear Arun, It’s better to change the car. Fixing a new engine in your 1999 model car does not make any sense. If your present car is having any special emotional value I suggest you to fix a 1.3 litre multijet diesel engine and it’s the best diesel engine in the world which is using for more than 6 millions of cars around the world.
