Every day automotive industry is more competitive and the smaller is the segment in which we move harder turns. This is well aware of the Group Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) the Queen of the segment in Europe and many countries in the world. One of them aspects more complex for them marks is the development of mechanical it enough efficient so their models comply with the regulatory of emissions of them countries in which is sold.
FCA is one of them groups more important in Brazil and to follow in the path not leave of bet by improve its range of models and engines. In this case you touches the shift to two new engines of gasoline called by the brand FireFly. The displacement of these mechanical will be 1.0 and 1.3 litre and his power will be by suction. According to these mechanical FCA will begin marketing in Brazil and then to reach other markets, including the European.
When these mechanical reach Europe Fiat retirement may worthily the indestructible 1.2 litres 69 BHP and 1.4 liters 95 HP Fire which are currently in the range of the Italian manufacturer. We can find these mechanical in the openings of the Panda, 500 or the new type. They are not the most frugal of the market but its reliability and toughness makes them very valid.
The mechanical new FireFly are made of aluminium and have an architecture modular which allows them to share a large number of components. These engines have two valves per cylinder with variable timing of his elevation and close. They are attached to a Start & Stop system and have an intelligent alternator that can recharge the battery in stages of slowdown. With these systems, these small engines comply with the normative anti pollution Euro 6.
These mechanics are staggered in two different powers. The smallest with 1.0 liter cylinder has 72 HP (3 more than the previous 1.2) and its maximum torque is located in 102 Nm at 3,250 rpm. In the case of the motorization 1.3 litre power increases up to 101 HP (6 more than the previous 1.4) being its maximum torque of 134 Nm at 3,500 rpm.
