Opel to Bring the New ecoFLEX Family to Geneva

German automaker Opel announced today it has prepared various goodies for this year’s Geneva Auto Show, set to take place early next month. After revealing it will offer a glimpse at the next-generation Zafira and will use the venue for the world premiere of the Ampera production car, Opel also confirmed it will showcase the new ecoFLEX family with Start/Stop technology.

First off, there will be the Corsa 1.3 CDTI ecoFLEX that now combines its 70 kW/95 hp powertrain with Start/Stop technology, offering combined fuel consumption of 3.5 liters per 100 km and emitting just 94 g/km CO2.

In addition to that, the new version of the Opel Astra 1.3 CDTI ecoFLEX (70 kW/95 hp) will also be on display. In the 5-door hatchback, it reduces CO2 emissions from 109 to just 104 g/km and combined fuel consumption from 4.1 liters to 3.9 liters per 100 km.

While the 5-door hatchback is available with and without the Start/Stop system, the new Sports Tourer 1.3 CDTI ecoFLEX has it as standard (fuel consumption 4.1 l/100 km, emissions 109 g/km CO2).

The fuel-saving tech is to be deployed throughout the entire model range. Specifically, Opel’s Start/Stop technology is now available in the Agila, Corsa and Astra models, but the automaker assures consumers that before the end of 2011, it will also be offered in the Meriva, Zafira and Insignia.
