Opel Zafira Tourer To Introduce All-New 1.6L Diesel Engine At Geneva Motor Show9
In a few weeks from today, the 2013 Geneva Motor Show will commence, and Opel will display its all-new CDTI Ecotec diesel engine in the Zafira Tourer, continuing the turnover for Opel’s diesel product lines.
For the Zafira, Opel has rated the new 1.6L diesel at 136 hp (100 kW), and 236 lb.-ft. (320 Nm) of torque (4.6 and 6.6 percent better than the outgoing 1.7L engine, respectively), while returning an estimated 4.1 l/100 km of fuel consumption (10 percent better compared to the 2.0L CDTI) and 109 g/km CO2 emissions on the European testing cycle. Opel claims that there is no other diesel seven-seater with such a well-rounded combination of power and fuel economy. Engineers also went above and beyond to suppress NVH levels and therefore increased the mill’s overall refinement.
The engine also features a Selective Catalyst Reduction system, like the Chevrolet Cruze 2.0TD that was unveiled in Chicago for the U.S. market. What Opel is calling “BlueInjection,” the system has been implemented in order for the engine to meet the stringent Euro 6 emissions standards. More importantly, the engine was developed globally, with engineers from Turin, Rüsselsheim and the USA.

Probably 3 years from now or more.
If you mean it won’t be available for another 3 years or more not so, it will be available in the Vauxhall / Opel Zafira Tourer later THIS year
That sure would be nice in the Sonic.
I just wonder why GM doesn’t offer the Zafira as a Buick van in North America.
If the Cruze and Zafira use the same Chassis, then there is potential for the Zafira to be sold here.
However I suspect that US GM will see it as a competitor to the 2wd Equinox and reject it.
Zafira is based on the same platform as the Astra, i.e. the Buick Verano and the Chevrolet Cruze and Orlando.
I mean in US in 3 years.
Rocky, I agree. GM makes too much money on the Equinox and is paranoid about another Chevy leeching sales. The thing is, I think there is such a huge size difference between the Trax and the Equinox that I donèt think they would be cross-shopped all that often. For me, the Trax is a good size, but the Equinox is way too big. And I think many others feel the same way.
