The Astra engines1 prove that it is possible to balance lively performance with fuel efficiency and low emissions. Leading edge technology, leaner, greener, and packing more fun.
The Opel Astra powertrain line-up features gasoline engines ranging from 70 kW (95 hp) to 132 kW (180 hp).
Both diesel and petrol variants are available with an advanced, precise and easy-shifting 5- or 6-speed manual transmission.
The Start/Stop System further optimizes fuel savings, especially in city traffic. The engine stops when the car comes to a standstill with transmission in neutral and starts instantly as soon as the clutch pedal is being activated again. The system can be activated/deactivated via a button on the instrument panel. When the system is active and the engine is stopped, the rev-counter needle goes to the labelled “AUTOSTOP” position to signal readiness for automatic start. The Start/Stop System uses an enhanced generator, starter, and a specific battery.
Fuel consumption in l/km: urban 9,9–4,3, extra-urban 5,6–3,4, combined 7,2–3,7; CO2 emission in g/km: combined 169–99.
