With the 170-horsepower 1.6 SIDI and six-speed automatic transmission, Opel Astra GTC reaches first hundred in a modest 9.2 second time. Maximum speed, 210 km / h, is, of course, electronically limited. For comparison, Astra GTC with a 180-horsepower 1.6 liter engine and a mechanical transmission could be dispersed to hundred in 8.3 seconds and to show a 220 km / h maximum speed.
Let\'s start with the turbo 1.6 SIDI. From now on it is placed on the Opel Astra GTC hatchback and station wagon Opel Astra Sports Tourer. This supercharged 1.6 liter SIDI unit, equipped with direct injection, produces 170 hp of power and 280 N • m of torque. It is designed to replace the 1.6 liter Turbo engine with 180 hp of capacity and 230 Newton per meters. 1.6 liter SIDI engine is more economical than its predecessor – in a combined cycle Astra GTC equipped with this engine consumes 6.7 liters per 100 km, while the 180-hp powered unit drinks 7.2 liters.
And this is despite the fact that the new engine only works in conjunction with dedicated six-speed \"automatic\" transmission.
The retired from the stage 1.6 liter Turbo could be aggregated only with a six-speed \"mechanics\". Astra GTC with the 1.6 liter SIDI unit has price range starting from $ 28.100, the Astra Sports Tourer ones – with $28.600. Opel Astra SUV with 130-horsepower turbo diesel 2.0 liter CDTi engine, supplemented with an \"automatic\" transmission is a truly exclusive combination. Such modification is not offered even in large markets in Germany and the UK. But five-door Astra Sports Tourer is being lucky twice - in addition to the new gasoline engine, it has received a diesel version.
This model became available since August 2013. The version with a 130-horsepower turbodiesel 2.0 liter CDTi engine, which from 1750 rev / min develops 300 N • m of torque and is supplemented with a six-speed automatic transmission, has a starting price of $27.200. From the competitors who offer diesel engines, the closest one is the Skoda Octavia Combi of latest generation.
