Opel has announced plans to introduce their new 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine at the Paris Motor Show.

Set to debut in the Insignia and Zafira Tourer, the new engine produces 170 PS (125 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. Despite being more powerful than its predecessor, the new engine is smoother and more fuel efficient. Opel also says the engine will be significantly quieter thanks to new architectural and engineering improvements.

According to Michael Ableson, Vice President of Vehicle Engineering Europe, "This sophisticated engine makes a perfect partner for our top models Insignia and Zafira Tourer. Its high power density, refinement, frugality and sheer fun-to-drive qualities place it among the very best diesels in its class. With Euro 6 compliance, the new 2.0 CDTI fulfills future requirements today, and it will substantially enhance the appeal of our diesel portfolio.”
