Vauxhall Adam gains new 1.0-liter engine image

The British based automaker Vauxhall has recently announced a new 1.0 liter engine which will make its way under the hood of the small Adam city car.

A brand new 1.0 liter three-cylinder engine will be adopted by the Vauxhall Adam city car. The announcement has been recently made by the carmaker, which is promising improved fuel consumption and reduced CO2 emissions, amongst others.

“In developing this small engine, we not only set out to minimize fuel consumption and CO2 emissions but we also wanted to demonstrate that three cylinders can be just as refined as four or more”, said the chief engineer of Vauxhall’s Small Gasoline Engines division, Matthias Alt.

The new 1.0 liter three-cylinder petrol engine which will make its way under the hood of the Vauxhall Adam is producing a total output of 113 HP and it has a peak torque of 122 lb-ft, available between 1,800 rpm and 4,700 rpm. The unit will be mated to a new six-speed transmission. The fuel economy is said to stand at 44.1 mpg UK. No pricing details on the Adam 1.0L have been announced yet.
