The new range of diesel Opel Astra
Together with the 1.6 liter CDTI to yield 136 horsepower and 320 Nm of torque, Opel announced a while ago that the new Astra will be a part of it. The German company now brings reasons for economical use and a new diesel engine, the same capacity but less power. The new motors are under powertrain has been initialized Opel, through a special program. Specifically, Opel will present at the Geneva Motor Show next month the Opel Astra with a new 1.6 liter, CDTI engine, which delivers 110 horsepower and 300 Nm of torque, but the average consumption will fall by 0.2 lt/100 km on 3.7 lt/100 km and emissions to 97 g/km versus 104 g/km with the previous motor.
On the other hand, of course, the economy has implications for performance, since this model with the new diesel will completes the 0-100 km/hr in 12 seconds instead of 10.1 seconds clutching the procedure with the previous diesel.
Also note that the new motor will be combined with a 6speed manual transmission. Finally, the launch of the new engine, the company said, will be done directly on the European market, immediately after the presentation of the upcoming report early March.
