Vauxhall Introduces Diesel Powered Engines to Their Astra Lineup
|   Thursday, July 17, 2014
Vauxhall has just announced a diesel powered 1.6 liter engine option for their upcoming Astra GTC. This new engine block will power the five-door Astra, while, slowly replacing their current generation 1.7 liter CDi engine block.

Without official confirmations regarding power displacement figures, we are looking at a value close to 134 BHP, along with 236 ft lb of torque. The Astra GTC already had high torque displacement and this addition takes it up by another 14 ft lb.
Looks like the good times are about to roll in!

This engine block will be hooked on to a six speed manual / automated transmission system, capable of displacing sufficient power to the points required. Prices are expected to start around the £22,260 mark, even as their production variant could sport different values. Vauxhall could soon add their range of Mokka engine blocks to the GTC, although, we will just have to be patient for now!
