At this year’s Geneva motor show, Opel introduces an all-new diesel engine, the 1.6 CDTI ECOTEC.
The cleanest diesel engine in the company’s history is showcased in the Zafira Tourer. Equipped with Opel “BlueInjection” SCR (selective catalytic reduction) technology, this new-generation four-cylinder turbo diesel already meets future stringent Euro 6 emissions limits.
In the Zafira Tourer, the new generation 1.6 CDTI ECOTEC unit delivers 100 kW/136 hp and 320 Nm of torque, together with combined cycle fuel efficiency of just 4.1 l/100 km and very low emission levels of only 109 g/km CO2.
Opel says no other compact MPV on the market place offers such a great combination of high torque and performance (with a maximum speed of 193 km/h) and fuel economy. The new 1.6 CDTI ECOTEC does not only set benchmarks for performance with its high power and torque density but also for refinement with an outstandingly low level of noise, vibration and harshness.
This new generation engine and its innovative engine control unit have been entirely developed in-house by a global team of engineers in Turin, Rüsselsheim and the USA.
