Apparently the new Opel Corsa 1.3-liter CDTI is the most economical diesel model Vauxhall has ever built. Let us be more specific. The 3-door Opel Corsa 1.3-liter CDTI ecoFlex, that features Start / Stop technology, has a fuel consumption of 3.3 liters / 100 km and the CO2 emission level reaches 88 g/km. In comparison with the 2011 model, this is a 0.2-liter / 100 km improvement. The five-door version on the other hand uses 3.4-liter / 100 km and the CO2 emission level reaches 89 g/km. Ever since the first Corsa ecoFlex was introduced, the engineers managed to reduce the CO2 emissions by 26%, but improve performance by more than 26%.
The changes made that improved the fuel consumption by 7% include a revised version of the 1.3-liter turbo diesel that powers the Corsa, which received a variable displacement oil pump. This actually only delivers the necessary oil pressure to reduce the energy needed for oil circulation. The modifications also include a reprogrammed ECU and the engineers have used special low-viscosity transmission oil. The list continues with a new generation manual transmission developed by Opel / Vauxhall that features new gears and modified parts. To transfer the output to the road, the specialists have offered 185 / 65 R15 low-rolling-resistance tires.
At the end of the process, the new Opel Corsa 1.3-liter ecoFlex is capable of generating 94 horsepower and 190 Nm of torque. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 12.3 seconds and to reach a top speed of 177 km/h. According to the carmaker, all Corsa models will benefit from a revised suspension with new dampers that will improve ride comfort on difficult roads and urban areas at low speeds without affecting handling. The OPC and VXR Nurburgring Editions make the exception.
