Fiat 131 Mirafiori

The Fiat 131 is a medium family car which was manufactured by the Italian automaker, Fiat, between 1974 and 1984. It was the successor of the Fiat 125 and came in both 2- and 4-door saloons, as well as a 5-door estate. The standard Fiat 131s were often badged as Mirafiori, bearing the name of the production plant at which they were made. These vehicles had 1.3 L and 1.6 L SOHC engines and underwent revisions in 1981 before production was completely stopped in 1984.

From 1978, Fiat also released an upgraded version of the 131 dubbed the Supermirafiori, featuring DOHC engines. It was also offered with a diesel variant, as well as the 131 Racing. The Fiat 131 Abarth, a rally car, went on to attain victories in the World Rally Championship three times -- in 1977, 1978, and 1980.

Model range

By the early 1980s, the Fiat 131 range consisted of the Mirafiori with 1300 and 1600cc engines, the Supermirafiori with 1300cc, 1600cc and 2000cc twin-cam engines, and the diesel models which comprised the 2000cc Mirafiori and 2500cc Supermirafiori. Additionally, customers had the option of a supercharged 2000cc variant.

The Spanish twin

Between 1974 and 1982, the Spanish brand SEAT released a car that was an exact twin of the Fiat 131 and called it the SEAT 131. The vehicles were exported to the same country and were only available in 4-door bodies. The SEAT factories produced the 131 Panorama, an estate version of the car, which then were marketed as Fiat badges.

The Turkish twin

Tofas industries in Turkey also based their initial production on Fiat 131s, built under Fiat license. The 131 spawned models like the Murat, the Dogan and the Kartal (the estate). These cars enjoyed a long production run before they were eventually replaced by newer Fiat models.
