Opel has announced the arrival of an all-new 4-cylinder, 1.6-liter turbodiesel engine.

The 1.6 CDTI ECOTEC engine has an aluminum block and features closed-loop consumption. It's the first diesel engine coming from Opel to meet Euro 6 emission requirements. The power unit is set to replace the 1.7-liter engines and certain lower-power versions of the 2.0-liter range.

It will be available for various models and in different states of tune. The base version generates 136 HP (100 kW) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft). Compared to the company's 2.0-liter diesels, the new mill has a 10 percent less fuel consumption.

It was developed in-house by a global team of engineers in Turin, Rüsselsheim and United States and will be offered starting with this spring. Manufacturing will take place in Szentgotthard, Hungary.
