UK: New Vauxhall Antara is under £20K image

Vauxhall unveiled official details for the 2011 Antara. For 2011, the Antara’s engine line-up consists of two new 2.2-liter CDTI diesels with 163HP and 184HP, and a new 2.4-liter ECOTEC gasoline variant with 167HP.

The 184PS top-of-the-line diesel, producing maximum torque of 400Nm at just 2000rpm, comes standard with all-wheel drive and is available with both transmissions. Performance is enhanced further, with a 0-60mph time of 9.6 seconds and a top speed of 124mph, with a combined 42.8mpg and CO2emissions of 175 g/km.

Two new six-speed transmission systems, one manually-operated and one automatic, combine efficiency with ease of operation. High-tech details like precision-designed “Monoblock” gear wheels and upgraded bearing elements in the manual gearbox ensure fluent gear changes and minimise friction and vibration.

A widely-spaced final drive ratio allows excellent response in first gear combined with a relaxed cruising gait in top gear. In addition, drivers have two programs available at the push of a button, depending on whether they want to “cruise” or drive more enthusiastically. The transmission also includes an automatic stage-by-stage braking system, which prevents unwanted up-shifts while the vehicle is coasting downhill.
