Opel has released new details about the upcoming 2010 Corsa ecoFLEX.
Power comes from a 1.3-liter CDTI turbo-diesel engine that produces 70 kW (95 hp) and 190 Nm of torque. Backed up by a revised five-speed transmission (it features a longer gear ratio), the Corsa accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 12.3 seconds before topping out at 177 km/h (110 mph).
Thanks to the advanced engine and transmission, the car averages 3.7L/100km (63.6 mpg) and emits 98 g/km of CO2 (99 g/km for the five-door). This effectively means the Corsa ecoFLEX boasts 28% more power than the previous generation, while fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are reduced by 10%. Despite sounding impressive, the VW Polo BlueMotion is still a tad more efficient as it consumes 3.3L/100km (71.3 mpg) and emits 87 g/km of CO2.
Set to be launched in January, the ecoFLEX also features a 20mm reduction in ride height, a diesel particulate filter, and aerodynamically-optimized 14-inch steel wheels (15-inch wheels are optional) outfitted with low roll-resistance tires.
