Vauxhall continues the renewal of its powertrain portfolio with an all-new four-cylinder, turbo-diesel engine. The second family of new downsized power units to be introduced after the petrol 1.6-litre SIDI ECOTEC, the 1.6-litre CDTI ECOTEC diesels will replace existing 1.7-litre engines and certain lower powered versions of the 2.0-litre range.
 
Featuring closed-loop combustion control and an aluminium block, the new 1.6 CDTI ECOTEC is the first diesel from Vauxhall to comply with future Euro 6 emissions requirements. The engine will be available in a variety of power outputs across several car lines.
 
Initially maximum power and torque have been increased versus the 1.7-litre engine to 136PS and 320Nm respectively, while fuel consumption has been reduced by up to 10 per cent compared with similarly powerful 2.0-litre diesels.
 
The new 1.6-litre diesel and its innovative engine control unit have been entirely developed in-house by a global team of engineers in Turin, Ruesselsheim and the USA.
 
Beginning in spring, the 1.6 CDTI ECOTEC will be manufactured at the same “flex plant” as the new 1.6-litre petrol engine, in Szentgotthard, Hungary.
