For the generation known as the E, the Opel / Vauxhall Corsa B-segment hatchback is more mature than ever before. But if frugality is at the top of your new car priorities list, then you might be interested in the fuel-efficient 1.3 CDTI turbo diesel.
Despite Europe’s love for the oil burner, some customers may not need the clatter of a turbo diesel. To be frank, those that use their cars to commute 10 km (6 miles) to and from work on a daily basis will prefer a petrol-fed powerplant over the diesel.

This is where the Opel Corsa in LPG EcoFLEX format comes on the scene. Peter Christian Küspert, Opel’s vice president of sales and aftersales, is pretty excited about this model: “With the 1.3 CDTI, which consumes just 3.1 liters diesel (75 US mpg or 91.1 UK mpg), and our brand-new 1.4 LPG ecoFLEX, we have two real ‘eco-champions’ in the Corsa lineup.”

“But these models aren’t only attractive for especially cost-conscious drivers. They also offer many features that go far beyond what’s normally found in the small car class, such as ample space, superb comfort, state-of-the-art connectivity and driver assistance systems, added Küspert.

Essentially, the 1.4 LPG EcoFLEX has been adapted to operate on whatever floats your boat more between petrol and LPG (liquid petroleum gas). The GM-owned German manufacturer is informing that in alternative fuel mode, the 2015 Opel Corsa 1.4 LPG EcoFLEX drinks 6.9 liters of fuel per 100 km on the combined driving cycle, equating to 34 US mpg or 40.9 UK mpg.

Available from €14,745 for the 3-door and €15,495 for the 5-door, the fuel-sipping Opel Corsa promises to reduce fuel costs by roughly 50 percent over its gasoline-only counterpart. In addition to this, the four-cylinder’s 90 HP are just enough to dwell into the urban jungle as you would with a petrol-fed hatchback.
