ABR Staff Writer Published 19 January 2012

Italian car maker Fiat and the Japanese car-maker Suzuki Motor have signed an agreement to supply more engines to Suzuki’s Indian unit Maruti Suzuki India (MSIL).

As per the agreement, Fiat will supply 100,000 additional 1.3L MultiJet 75hp BS-IV small diesel engines a year from January 2012 for three years to Maruti.

The Fiat's engine features a mutijet injection technology that combines performance with low environmental impact resulting in diesel efficiency and performance in its class.

The new 4 cylinder engine will power the Suzuki models from India built in the company's local affiliate Maruti.

The engine is also supplied to General Motors in Europe, and the same engine powers the Fiat 500, Punto and Panda.

The engine will be produced by Fiat India Automobiles Limited (FIAL) which is a joint venture between Fiat and Tata Motors at a plant near Pune, India.
