Like an efficient and well-behaved school student, Opel/Vauxhall has handed its homework in early.
It developed and built a clean, efficient, quiet and Euro 6 compliant diesel engine - thanks to AdBlue Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology - well ahead of the September 2015 deadline.
The all-new 136PS 1.6CDTi powertrain, producing 320Nm of torque and delivering 85PS per litre, makes its world debut in the Astra-based 7-seater Zafira Tourer People-Carrier.
It is Opel/Vauxhall’s first all aluminium diesel engine.
Developed entirely in-house at GM’s powertrain engineering centre in Turin, Italy,
it is manufactured at GM’s Szentgotthárd engine plant in Hungary, employing 650 employees.
