Opel has introduced the 2013 Corsa 1.3 CDTI ecoFlex. It offers reduced fuel consumption and emissions.
Opel has announced the 2013 Corsa 1.3 CDTI ecoFlex will become the most economical and fuel-efficient diesel model in the company's history.
In order to improve the car's already impressive numbers, engineers installed a revised ECU, a variable displacement oil pump and an improved manual transmission. The car has also been equipped with a retuned suspension, low-rolling resistance tires and low-viscosity transmission oil.
Despite the changes, the engine still produces 95 HP (70 kW) and 190 Nm (140 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the three-door model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 12.3 seconds, hit a top speed of 177 km/h (110 mph) and average 3.3 L/100km (71.2 mpg US / 85.6 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of 88 g/km.
According to Opel's Vice President of Engineering, Mike Ableson, "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."
