Opel unveils Corsa ecoFLEX image

The German based automaker Opel has recently unveiled the Corsa ecoFLEX, which should become the most fuel efficient and economical diesel vehicle in the company’s history.

According to the car manufacturer, the Opel Corsa ecoFLEX is coming with some changes including the retuned suspension, the variable displacement oil pump, the revised ECU, the improved manual transmission, the low viscosity transmission oil and the low rolling resistance tires.

“In just five years, from the first Corsa ecoFLEX to today, we have been able to reduce consumption and CO2 emissions by 26 percent – while at the same time increasing performance by over 26 percent. Our customers appreciate this, as does the environment”, said the Opel vice president of Engineering, Mike Ablseson.

Even with the changes mentioned above, the 1.3 liter CDTI ecoFLEX engine is still producing 95 horsepower (70 kW) and 190 Nm of torque (140 lb-ft), which allows the model to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h 12.3 before reaching a top speed of 177 km/h (110 mph). The most important figures are the ones showing us the fuel consumption, at 3.3 L/100 km (85.6 mpg UK / 71.2 mpg US) and the CO2 emissions, stopping at 88 g/km. More details on the Opel Corsa ecoFLEX will be announced close to its launch.
