The New Opel Corsa 1.3 CDTI ecoFLEX Guzzles Only 3.1 L/100 Km
|   Friday, February 13, 2015
The new Opel Corsa is not only very attractive, but is also a true champion of fuel economy. The three-door car equipped with the 1.3 CDTI ecoFLEX 70 kW / 95 hp, with Start / Stop system in its standard equipment, braking energy recovery and low rolling resistance tires, in combination with the new Easytronic 3.0, can reduce emissions to 82 g CO2 / km.

The combined fuel consumption is just 3.1 l / 100 km and turns the new Corsa into the most economical diesel on the market today.
The champion of fuel economy can be ordered in Europe starting this March.

The completely redesigned diesel engine with an output of 70 kW / 95 hp and a maximum torque of 190 Nm at engine speeds which are between 1,750 rpm and 2,500 rpm, combined with the latest generation turbocharger provides propelling force and high acceleration even at low engine speeds while also being extremely quiet. A water pump, activated when needed, and a variable displacement oil pump contributes to the exemplary values of fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

Special tires with low rolling resistance and braking energy recovery system play an important role in this respect. Thanks to these innovations, the three-door Corsa with the new Easytronic 3.0 transmission, has a fuel consumption of just 3.1 l / 100 km, and an emission level of just 82 grams of CO2 per kilometer, three grams less than with a manual transmission with five speeds, thereby falling in the A+ efficiency class.

The Easytronic 3.0 with five gears weighs less and has less internal friction compared to a conventional automatic transmission. It combines the advantages of a comfortable automatic transmission with manual transmission efficiency. Easytronic 3.0 automatically selects the most economical gear, based on an optimized manual transmission for smaller engines, ensuring movement with low fuel consumption. The automatic transmission is combined with Start / Stop technology, which further reduces fuel consumption, especially in city traffic.

Opel engineers have developed a special gear wheel mechanism for the automatic transmission. Large terraces reduce the engine speed and noise for example when driving on the highway, to a pleasant growl.

Moreover, Easytronic 3.0 also has a way to travel at low speed similar to that provided by an automatic transmission for low speed maneuvers. The transmission has a special start function, for fast starts and sporty acceleration.

The latest generation Easytronic impresses with short reaction times, gear changes being made faster and smoother. This optimization was possible due to a new actuation device, improved sensor and control technology and fully redesign of the basic manual transmission. In addition to the automatic mode with an electrohydraulic actuation device which handles switching and shifting operations, the Easytronic 3.0 provides manual gear change by action of pulling and pushing the shift lever.

"Our automated five-speed manual transmission in the new Corsa is a real highlight for price-conscious customers who do not want to miss the comfort of an automatic. When combined with the frugal diesel the small car becomes an efficiency giant. Therefore, it is perfect for both short urban shopping trips and longer journeys." declared Peter Christian K├╝spert, Vice President Sales & Aftersales Opel Group.
