Opel Astra Overview
The new Opel Astra is the result of a “cure” that has led to a significant drop in the weight up to 200 kg. An important factor to improve the overall efficiency, fuel consumption and performance specifically. Obviously supported by the engines.
The power of these units range from 95 horsepower to 200 horsepower. Diesel and petrol variants, with capacity up to 1.6 liters, have three characteristics in common: combine the efficiency of an answer and a fluidity. The 1.6 CDTI units, with a wide range of output power levels from 95 horsepower, covers the supply of diesel engines, while the entry-level petrol engine is the 1.0 ECOTEC turbo gasoline direct injection (105 horsepower).
The ‘highlight’ of the New Opel Astra engine range is the new 1.4 ECOTEC turbo direct-injection, four-cylinder unit of the same family as the more compact but more powerful, three-cylinder 1.0-liter. The new all-aluminum engine will debut in a version from 145 horsepower.
Opel Astra Ecotec
Promises dynamic response and high performance, combined with low fuel consumption. The unit delivers a maximum torque up to 250 Nm in a very short time and the maximum power is available between 1800 and 4000 rev / min – perfect conditions, these, to ensure driving pleasure and efficiency at the same time. Thanks to its construction, the new 1.4 ECOTEC turbo engine with direct injection has a limited impact on the overall weight of the car. Only the aluminum block weighs ten kilograms less block forged steel of the 1.4-liter turbo unit.
