By adding a new diesel engine that lowers fuel economy while offering low CO2 emissions, Opel has updated its Astra for 2014. The new engine is also said to be quieter as well as a bit quicker off the line. Furthermore, the new Astra will come with an enhanced interior.
The 2014 Opel Astra’s new diesel engine will boast 100kW with 320Nm of torque. These figures will launch the car from 0 to 100km/h in 10.3 seconds, where the top speed is 200km/h.
Fuel-wise, the 1.6-litre CDTI engine will use 3.9-litres of diesel per 100km/h, where the CO2 emissions will be as low as 104g/km.
Inside the 2014 Astra will also be new technology, such as the IntelliLink infotainment system, smart-phone functionality and a high-resolution colour display.
A new “Active” option pack is also available, and this includes LED daytime running lights, auxiliary and USB support and Bluetooth connectivity.
The diesel engine can be connected to the five-door hatch, the sedan, and the Sports Tourer Astra variants.
