The German based automaker Opel has officially announced the introduction of a new engine for the Cascada convertible.
Future buyers of the Opel Cascada will be glad to find out that they can now order a brand new engine for the upcoming rides, the same one which has been recently introduced on the Insignia and on the Zafira Tourer, in the shape of the 2.0 liter CDTI.
“The Opel Cascada is a seductive whirlwind with its top down and a quiet Gran Turismo when the top is up. It is a year-round cabriolet thanks to its sophisticated soft-top that opens in just 17 seconds while driving at speeds of up to 50 km/h. And now Opel gives the Cascada the brand-new two-liter turbo diesel engine recently introduced in the Insignia and Zafira Tourer, as well as the three new colors True Blue, Rocky Coast and Coconut”, says the carmaker in its press release.
The new 2.0L CDTI diesel burner is capable of putting down 170 HP (125 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque, getting 3 percent more power and 14 percent more torque. The unit, which is meeting the Euro 6 emission standards, can be connected to a 6-speed manual transmission, eating up an average of 4.9 liters of fuel every 100 km in a combined cycle and emitting 129 g/km of CO2. The Cascada equipped with this engine needs 10.3s to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill and it can go up to 218 km/h (135 mph). Prices for the vehicle in this configuration start from 30,500 euros, VAT included.
