While Opel works in the restylage of its large and successful sedan that we discover in 2013 at the Geneva show (marketing announced for the second half of 2013), we learn that Opel is also spot on a new block diesel engine to replace the current 1.7 L CDTI.
It would be a new 1.6 L CDTI more efficient, less intensive and less polluting than the current 1.7 L we know well and has long since now under many variants under the hood of the Opel. It is known that he should be found under the hood of the Insignia in entry and it will normally take the place of the 2.0 L CDTI 110. Should later find this block 1.6 L on the Astra, Meriva, Corsa and can be same Zafira Tourer versions with the powers will be between 100 and 130 c. Question: this new block will go you it in PSA in the next years to replace the current 1.6 L HDI? It is to follow in 2013/2014.
I note also that the restylee Insignia should enjoy end of 2013 of another new motor 1600, the recent L4 1.6 L Ecotec Turbo SIDI to take the estate of the current 1.6 L Turbo Ecotec “non-SIDI” 180 HP which is, I repeat, an excellent engine in terms of balance sheet approval/performance/consumption.
