Opel will introduce at the 2014 Paris Motor Show the all-new 2.0-liter CDTi diesel engine that will debut on the Insignia and Zafira Tourer. The new engine replaces the current 2.0 CDTi (163 hp) and will deliver almost 5% more power (170 hp) as well as 14 percent more torque (400 Nm).
As expected, the new engine is Euro 6 compliant and according to Opel it offers the same power density as the new-generation 1.6 CDTi.
The engine comes with a newly-designed combustion chamber, re-profiled intake ports and a new fuel injection system with 2,000 bar and up to 10 injections per cylinder cycle.
The noise attenuation is improved thanks to a new aluminum cylinder head design, plastic cam cover with isolated fixings, a sealing gasket and a single shell cover made of sound-absorbing material for the intake manifold.
“This sophisticated engine makes a perfect partner for our top models Insignia and Zafira Tourer,” says Michael Ableson, Vice President Vehicle Engineering Europe. “Its high power density, refinement, frugality and sheer fun-to-drive qualities place it among the very best diesels in its class. With Euro 6 compliance, the new 2.0 CDTI fulfills future requirements today, and it will substantially enhance the appeal of our diesel portfolio.” [source: Opel]
