From Opel press: The Opel Agila, a mini-monocab with five doors and five seats, is designed for city use. This year the 1.2-liter engine has been given a make-over, adding variable valve timing and an advanced alternator while reducing engine friction, so that it offers nearly 10 percent increased performance while at the same time using more than eight percent less fuel. The 1.2-liter 69kW/94 hp offers 118 Nm torque at 4800 rpm. It requires only 5.1 liters per 100 kilometers, emitting only 119 g/km.
Two frugal gasoline engines are used in the Agila. Both have an aluminum cylinder block and head as well as twin overhead camshafts and are Euro 5 compliant.
The entry-level engine is the 1.0-liter three-cylinder unit with 48 kW/65 hp and a top speed of 160 km/h. Fitted with a five-speed manual gearbox it requires 5.1 l/100 km and emits 119 g/km CO2.
The 1.2-liter four-cylinder engine with 69 kW/94 hp sprints from zero to 100 km/h in 12 seconds and reaches a maximum speed of 175 km/h. It is offered in both a standard five-speed manual gearbox and an optional four-speed automatic transmission.
With the fuel-saving Start/Stop technology, the Agila 1.2-liter ecoFLEX (69 kW/94 hp) with five-speed manual gearbox emits just 116 g/km CO2 and has combined cycle fuel consumption of only 5.0 l/100 km.
