New 1.6-liter Ecotec engine set for Astra GTC

Vauxhall has announced that an all-new 1.6-liter direct injection gasoline engine will power its new Astra GTC.
First seen in the Cascada convertible, and offering 200ps and 300Nm of torque, the four cylinder unit allows the GTC to achieve a top speed of 230km/h and 0-100km/h time in 7.3 seconds, making it the fastest non-VXR model in the Astra range.
According to the OEM, peak power and torque are increased by up to 30% over the previous 1.6-liter turbo model, yet fuel consumption of 5.539 liters/100km (51mpg) combined and emissions of 154g/km have resulted in a 13% improvement in efficiency.
The new powerplant is also the only unit in its class to feature twin balancer shafts, while Vauxhall says a host of sound engineering measures have been made for low noise, vibration and harshness.
“We’ve strengthened our Astra GTC offering with a strong and powerful 1.6-liter gasoline engine,” said Stuart Harris, Vauxhall’s head of carline brand. “Vauxhall is really throwing down the gauntlet to UK coupe sector rivals with these enhancements to our Astra GTC range.”
