Opel announced it will extend the introduction of its new generation 1.6 liter diesel engine on the current Mokka. According to a press release published today, the current Mokka will receive the already popular 1.6 CDTi diesel engine.
The new all-aluminum four-cylinder engine will replace the ageing 1.7 CDTI. With more power and torque, up 6 hp and 20 Nm, from a smaller displacement, the engine offers also significantly lower fuel consumption.
Thanks to 320 Nm delivered very quickly, the Mokka 1.6 CDTi accelerates from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 9.9 seconds, and makes the transition from 80 to 120 km/h (75 mph) in fifth gear in just 9.9 seconds. Maximum speed is 191 km/h (118 mph).
Mated to a six-speed manual transmission, the new engine is fitted as standard with a start-stop system and consumes just 4.1 l/100 km (57 mpg) over the combined cycle while emitting only 109 g/km CO2. This is almost 0.5 l/100 km less fuel (6 mpg more) and 11 g/km less CO2 than the predecessor 1.7 liter version. The new diesel CDTi engine complies with the stringent Euro 6 emissions standard.
According to Opel, the new engine will be available for an entry-level price of euro 24,685.
