Engine Description:

The 1.3 CDTI engine in the new Corsa ecoFLEX 70 kW/95 hp uses a turbocharger and delivers up to a plentiful 190 Nm of torque between 1,750 and 3,250 rpm.The engine of the Opel Corsa ecoFLEX combines two strengths: low CO2 and high performance. Opel engineers achieved this by using a turbo with variable turbine geometry, which significantly improves the engine’s performance. They also optimized the calibration on the engine to greatly increase low-end torque and peak power, making a new transmission set-up possible: A longer transmission gear ratio was selected for the five-speed unit, to the benefit of fuel consumption and CO2 values below 100 g. The new 70 kW/95 hp Corsa ecoFLEX has a top speed of 177 km/h and needs only 12.3 seconds to reach 100 km/h from a standstill.
