Pure Pleasure: Highly Efficient 1.4-Litre Turbo in the New Astra

18.06.2015

Rüsselsheim. The full name of the new Opel engine is 1.4 ECOTEC Direct Injection Turbo and it will celebrate its world premiere in the new Opel Astra at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt (IAA) in September. The four-cylinder turbocharged unit with central direct fuel injection will be available in two outputs, 92 kW and 110 kW. This combination links the new all-aluminium engine to the recently introduced 1.0 ECOTEC Direct Injection Turbo known from Opel ADAM and Corsa. In fact, the new 1.4-litre four-cylinder engine is the big brother of the one-litre, three-cylinder unit that has been praised by the trade press since its introduction in the ADAM ROCKS and the new Corsa generation. Both engines are members of the so-called small petrol engine family – a group of high-tech engines with three or four cylinders and a displacement below 1.6 litres. They are key players in the biggest engine offensive in Opel’s history which will see 17 new engines brought to market from 2014 to 2018.
