Opel Astra BiTurbo

'S Opel Astra sees growing up its diesel range: on the German debut of the compact BiTurbo 2.0 CDTI engine from 195 hp and 400 Nm launched in recent months on the Insignia. The units will be available on both five-door version, both on the Sports Tourer: first, by virtue of the 226 km / h top (against the 222 of the family), the Astra diesel is faster than ever. Be stressed that the House has informed the European level of this engine also offered on the GTC, which apparently will not be marketed in Italy.

In Italy in January. According to the statements of the House, the model is able to limit the consumption on the average cycle time for approval by the 5.1 l/100 km, equal to 134 g / km of CO2.

The Astra CDTI BiTurbo will reach dealerships in Italian next January.

Mid-range the two turbines operate together, with the impeller largest pre-compressing the intake air, prior to compression proper, which is assigned to the smallest. Above 3,000 rpm, then, remains in operation only the big turbo.

Small technical differences. It should be pointed out that the Astra and Insignia united by the same engine, however, are divided by a technical difference imposed by the different availability of space within the two engine rooms: BiTurbo to mount on the compact, the designers the Opel had to move the two intercooler to a different location.

In the rear are to be seen the two tailpipes and more aggressive bumper design. The interior is characterized ultimately for the covering in Jet Black with Red Magic stitching on seats, door panels and shift lever.
