Thanks to improved engine control and lower vehicle weight, Opel reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of the Corsa 1.3 CDTI ecoFLEX by around nine percent. Its combined fuel consumption is now just 4.1 instead of 4.5 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers, and at 109 g/km, it emits 10 grams less CO2 per kilometer than before.
The Corsa use a similar recipe to reduce fuel consumption and emissions. On the Corsa, the calibration of the 1.3 CDTI engine is optimized and adapted to a longer transmission gear ratio.
To improve its aerodynamics, the car is lowered by 20 mm, air intakes are optimized and wheels are fitted with newly designed, more effective wheel caps.
