With an average fuel consumption of 4.1L/100 km and CO2 emissions of 109 g/km, the diesel-powered Opel Astra 1.3 CDTI ecoFLEX hatchback was already a frugal and eco-friendly proposal. The new start and stop technology helps the hatchback version of the Astra ecoFLEX reduce its CO2 emissions from 109 to just 104 g/km with a combined fuel consumption of 3.9 liters per 100 km. The Sport Tourer estate version of the Astra ecoFLEX consumes 4.1L/100km on the average and emits 109 g/km of CO2.
All ecoFLEX models come equipped with an active aero shutter incorporated in the front grille that channels more air towards the engine at slow speeds for improved cooling and closes at higher speeds to smoothen the airflow around the fascia. The aero shutter is complemented by refined underbody aerodynamics.
Powering the Astra ecoFLEX is a 95HP 1.3-liter diesel engine mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), designed to remove diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine, is offered as standard. With the price of fuel escalating in recent months, the greener ecoFLEX model may have come just in time.
