As one of the most important players on the utility vehicles market, Opel is renewing its models, updating them to better fit clients. The current Opel Combo is on a list for improvements.
The small utility vehicle will receive a new  Euro 6 compliant 1.6-liter CDTI turbo diesel with two power levels. The 95 hp and 120 hp units will replace the outgoing 90 hp and 105 hp units.
Both output levels are optionally available with or without ecoFLEX technology including Start/Stop. The engineers achieved an output increase of 5 hp and improved fuel consumption for the 95 hp ecoFLEX variant, with average fuel consumption being reduced from 5.0 to 4.7 liters of diesel which is equivalent to 124 grams of CO2 per kilometer.
The output of the more powerful engine was increased by no less than 15 hp. Fuel consumption was reduced from 5.2 to 4.7 liters and CO2 emissions from 138 grams per kilometer to 124 grams per kilometer for the ecoFLEX version.
Apart from the Start/Stop system, the ecoFLEX technology for the new engines includes a new intelligent alternator with braking energy recuperation, a variable oil pump, low friction oil, low-rolling-resistance tires and an aerodynamics package – all of which help reduce emissions.
