Opel revealed the first details about the new Corsa 1.3 CDTI ecoFlex MY2013, that is bound to be the more efficient diesel model in the history of the German brand. Updates for the ecoFlex 2013 include a new electronic mapping of the engine control unit, a variable displacement oil pump and revisited ratios for the gearbox.
Also making their first appearance on the model are a new set of tires with low rolling resistance and a special low viscosity oil for the transmission. Last but not least, the set up of the suspension has been fine tuned as well to provide this eco-friendly version of the Corsa with a more efficient grip on the road.
The engine will continue to provide 95 horseppwer and 190 Nm of maximum torque, numbers that allow the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 12.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 177 km/h (109 mph). Obviously sheer performance is not what this car is about, so here are the really significant figures for the new Corsa ecoFlex: average fuel consumption is rated at 3.3 litres/100 km, while claimed CO2 emissions are 88 g/km. The pictured model is the 2011 version.
