Opel Mokka 1.6 CDTI unveiled ahead of Paris debut


The new Opel Mokka 1.6 CDTI has been unveiled prior to its Paris motor show debut. Onwards from early 2015, the car will be available with a new 1.6 litre turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine pumping out 136 hp and 320 Nm of torque.

Opel’s 1.6 litre CDTI is part of the company’s new all-aluminium diesel engine range and is available with a six-speed manual as well as a six-speed automatic. Both transmission options are mated to a choice of either front or all-wheel drive. Performance figures include a 0-100 km/h time of just 9.9 seconds and a top speed of 191 km/h.


In typical diesel fashion, the advantage is most obvious with in-gear accelerations figures – the Mokka clocking in a 80 to 120 km/h time of just 9.9 seconds in fifth gear. The 1.6 litre CDTI complies with Euro 6 emission standards, consuming just 24.4 km/litre of fuel and emitting 109 g/km of CO2 when paired to the six-speed manual transmission.

Methods employed by Opel engineers to achieve the desired results in terms of performance and engine emissions include variable turbine geometry (VTG) turbos and a Lean NOx Trap (LNT) system – an after-treatment system for the exhaust that uses a diesel particulate filter that captures and reduces nitrogen oxide from the exhaust gases.

      Too busy for a small car I think, and also rear visibility is quite poor.
