Vauxhall ecoFLEX technology comes together with our clever 1.0i Turbo petrol engine, utilising a turbo charger and direct injection technology to deliver a powerful performance from a smaller, lighter unit.
The result is an economical engine that outperforms many 4-cylinder units in terms of refinement and power, whilst offering efficiency to rival diesel competitors, with CO2 emissions from just 96g/km and a combined MPG figure of up to 68.9 in our multi-award-winning Astra. BiK tax starts at 16%*.
The refined 1.0i Turbo petrol is available in our Corsa, Astra and ADAM ecoFLEX models.
Examples are highlighted below:
Vauxhall’s cutting edge Start/Stop fuel saving and emissions reduction technology is available on our ecoFLEX 1.0i Turbo petrol engines. The system switches the engine off when the vehicle stops at the lights or in traffic and then restarts it automatically once the clutch is depressed.
Efficiency is also aided by the addition of our brake energy regeneration system. This re-uses energy recovered from vehicle braking, helping to improve overall fuel consumption.
In addition, this engine’s new-generation six-speed manual transmission is 30% lighter than its predecessor, offering superior shift quality, excellent precision and smooth gear changes.
