2014 Vauxhall Astra GTC receives new 1.6 CDTi Whisper Diesel engine

Article by Christian A., on July 14, 2014

The Vauxhall Astra GTC could now be availed with the 1.6 CDTi ‘Whisper Diesel’ engine, which replaces the 1.7 CDTi. The Astra GTC is the latest Vauxhall model to receive the new engine, which is already available in the Astra, Meriva and Zafira Tourer. The new engine provides up to 136 PS in output and 320 Nm in torque, while still delivering excellent fuel economy.

It is paired with an improved six-speed manual transmission in the Astra GTC. The GTC 1.6 CDTi comes with Start/Stop plus a braking energy recuperation system as standard, allowing it to deliver fuel economy of up to 72.4mpg on the combined cycle and emit 104 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer.

It is also Euro 6-compliant. The 1.6 CDTi is considered one of the best engines in its class in terms noise and vibration, all thanks to an efficient combustion process with multiple injection and re-designed components, as well as the use of acoustic covers.

Stuart Harris, Vauxhall’s Head of Carline Brand, remarked that the new 1.6-liter ‘Whisper Diesel’ engine in the flagship GTC model is a result of significant investment and provides an “exceptional blend of performance, refinement and economy.” The GTC -- available in Sport, Limited Edition and SRi trims – has a starting price of £22,260.
