Key ecoTEC diesel engine features include

  • An aluminium cylinder block and bedplate have been used to save weight and help improve engine efficiency.
  • Performance has been optimised with closed-loop combustion control and multiple fuel injections, up to 10 per cycle, for efficient, clean and quiet running.
  • Acoustic covers are used across the unit, all of which help to attain superb levels of refinement.
  • The 1.6CDTi has the lowest internal engine friction rating in its class. A switchable water pump and variable displacement oil pump all contribute to the outstanding fuel economy and reduced CO2 emissions.

Vauxhall ecoTEC start/stop system

Vauxhall’s cutting edge Start/Stop fuel saving and emissions reduction technology is available on all of our ecoTEC diesel 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.

Blueinjection selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system 

The BlueInjection Selective Catalytic Reduction System (SCR) in selected ecoTEC diesel engines (e.g. the 1.6CDTi Zafira Tourer) is an environmentally-friendly exhaust after-treatment in which a diesel exhaust fluid named AdBlue, consisting of just urea and water, is injected into the exhaust gas to ensure engine emissions are cleaner and Euro 6 emissions standards compliant.

Benefits of ecoTEC diesel engines:

  • Impressive economy with combined MPG up to 85.6, helping to reduce your running costs.
  • Amazing efficiency with CO2 emissions from just 88g/km ensuring taxes are minimised.
  • Long service and maintenance intervals, ensuring your Whole Life Costs are kept to a minimum.
  • Compliance with Euro 6 emissions standards.
  • Superb refinement with vastly reduced levels of noise, vibration and harshness.
  • Strong performance with lots of low end torque and power.
  • Effortless acceleration and maximum driver satisfaction.
Working in synergy with our range of Turbo and non-Turbo petrol engines, ecoTEC technology makes every journey ultra-efficient.

They offer seriously lowered fuel consumption and emissions to keep running costs and tax bills to a minimum.
Remarkable fuel economy of up to 64.2mpg (combined)
Low CO2 from just 102g/km
Benefit-in-Kind company car tax rates from 21%

 

The advantages don't stop there: there's no sacrifice in performance either. So you can achieve a powerful driving experience without compromise.
