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.

Euro 6 diesel emissions standard passenger car deadline

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.

This new diesel engine already complies with Euro 6 - the world’s most rigorous diesel emission standard - ahead of the September 2015 deadline. 

These tough and for the industry dreaded Euro 6 exhaust emission norms will be binding for the first-off type-approval of all-new vehicles as of 1 September 2014 and for the registration and sale of all new cars and vans as of 1 September 2015
