2.0 20v

Like the 1.8 16v, the 2.0 20v with 147bhp was launched in 1995. Unlike the 1.8 16v this engine was available in the UK. The Fiat Coupe went on to become a more refine GT. The 2.0 20v with 5 cylinders had very smooth power delivery and gave a great balance between power and economy. And although the 2.0 16v was a lovely sounding sporty engine, the specific tune of the 5 cylinders' offbeat thrum is something special. The 20v normally aspirated engine was also used in the Bravo HGT, Marea and Lancia Kappa saloon.

The 20v models received a slight facelift in the end of 96. The most important changes to the Pininfarina interior were a new central console with an analogue clock, new door cards, new B-pillar handle bars, radiator grill with rib design and a third brake light.

The Plus versions no longer appeared in the range, but the larger choice in colour and trim would offer greater possibilities for those interested.

In 1998 Fiat introduced a 154bhp version of the engine with fly-by-wire and Variable Intake System (VIS). In 2000 Fiat introduced seats with side airbags throughout the range.
