Opel Zafira gets new 1.6L SIDI engine image

Opel has recently introduced a new 1.6 liter SIDI engine for the Opel Zafira, which has the tough job of making the model more appealing to clients who are looking for something similar.

The Opel Zafira will now become available for order equipped with a new 1.6 liter SIDI engine, with four cylinders, which is producing a total output of 200 HP (147 kW) and it has a peak torque of 300 Nm (221 lb-ft). The unit is mated to a six-speed manual transmission which is allowing the model to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.9 seconds before reaching a top speed of 225 km/h (140 mph).

“Our latest and top addition to the Zafira Tourer family, the 1.6 SIDI Turbo with 147 kW/200 hp and 300 Nm of maximum torque sets new standards in the segment of the compact monocabs. It brings out a winning combination of high-level performance and ultimate comfort defined by comprehensive flexibility”, said the Opel CEO, Karl Thomas Newmann.

Opel says that in terms of fuel efficiency, the model is burning an average of 7.0 liters every 100 km (40.3 mpg UK / 33.6 mpg US) and the CO2 emissions will stop at 164 g/km. The Opel Zafira, equipped with this 1.6L SIDI Turbo engine, can only be distinguished by its dual exhaust system, by the red turbo badging and the 17- to 19-inch alloy wheels. The model will become available for order next month.
