Geneva 2014: Opel Astra 1.6 CDTI With 3.7 l / 100 km Fuel Consumption
|   Wednesday, February 19, 2014
After it debuted on the Zafira Tourer, the new very quiet diesel engine now provides an efficient and ecological running for Opel models. The 1.6 CDTI unit with 100 kW / 136 hp and maximum torque of 320 Nm is now available for series models like the Astra hatchback, Astra notchback and Astra Sports Tourer.

This ensures a perfect performance and has a minimum noise level with a consumption of only 3.9 liters of diesel fuel per 100 km, according to the NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) testing procedure.
The version with 81 kW / 110 hp of the quiet turbo diesel engine, which will debut at the Geneva Motor Show, held from March 6 to 16, is even more ecological and fuel efficient. According to NEDC, the engine also managed to score high marks at CO2 emission level, 97 g / km, which is below the reference value of 100 g / km.

"Our high-volume Astra and the new whisper diesel 1.6 CDTI are a perfect match. They are the ideal coupling for everyone who wants to combine high performance with top refinement and high fuel efficiency. The new 1.6 ECOTEC Direct Injection Turbo gasoline and 1.6 CDTI engines comprise the core of our engine offensive. They prove that Opel cars not only impress with design, but also offer top quality with ultra-modern technologies for an all-round, first-class driving experience" said Michael Ableson, Vice President GME Engineering.

The Opel engine, extremely efficient and quiet, is the first unit of Astra's portfolio that already meet the provisions of the future Euro 6 emission standard, which makes it the greenest Opel diesel engine ever built.

The engine ranks first in its class in terms of noise and vibration due to optimized design of components, a highly efficient combustion process with multiple injection and additional sound insulation measures. The result is worth more than a fleeing glance.

The new Opel 1.6 CDTI diesel engine is the quietest in its class, earning a reputation of "whisper diesel". Other elements that contribute to its enhanced performance and environmental friendliness are the high pressure common rail system and turbocharger VTG (variable turbine geometry), which provides a strong response, and constitutes the basic technical elements of the engine.

Because of all these advantages, the 110 hp version of the silent and ultra-modern diesel, which will be available soon, is an economic engine but not at all apathetic. The new generation of this ecological unit, with refined running and low noise, offers exceptional power. Equipped with this new unit the Astra hatchback, notchback and Sports Tourer accelerates from zero to 100 km / h in 12 seconds, reaching a top speed of 186 km / h.

The new 1.6 CDTI engine is accompanied by an optimized manual six-speed transmission. This ensures the most comfortable gear change, considering that Opel has invested over 50 million euros to optimize five or six gear transmissions. The multitude of improvements in the transmission components and switching mechanisms, as well as the integration of all components in the vehicle, have determined a considerable increase the comfort. Due to low-friction gearboxes, gear shifting requires minimal effort, the Astra 1.6 CDTI being faster, more accurate to control and, most importantly, having a perfectly smooth run.
