We’re excited to announce that our all-new 2.0 litre 170PS and 400Nm ECOTEC CDTi diesel engine will début at the 2014 Paris Motor Show in October.
The state-of-the-art engine will be revealed in the Vauxhall Insignia and Zafria Tourer as part of our new powertrain portfolio, replacing the current 2.0 CDTi (163PS) engine at the top of our diesel range.
This highly efficient, Euro 6-compliant engine delivers almost five per cent more power and 14 per cent more torque, while reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
It’s also impressively quiet and smooth as a result of the ‘sound engineering’ measures we’ve made to minimise noise, vibration and harshness (MVH). Engine noise has been reduced by a full five decibels.
The new engine’s power density is 85PS per litre, the same as our much-lauded 1.6 CDTi ‘whisper diesel’ unit. Impressive torque of 400Nm is available from 1,750 to 2,500rpm, and maximum power of 170PS is accessed at just 3,750rpm.
The new 2.0 CDTi runs as clean as a petrol engine thanks to our BlueInjection Selective Catalytic Reduction system. BlueInjection is an after-treatment which removes NOx from the engine’s exhaust gases.
“This sophisticated engine makes a perfect partner for our top models including Insignia and Zafira Tourer,” said Stuart Harris, Vauxhall’s Head of Carline Brand. “Its high power density, refinement and frugality place it among the very best diesels in its class.”
