More Power and Refinement for Opel Grandland X

 180 hp Direct Injection Turbo with eight-speed automatic for Opel’s compact SUV


Opel Grandland X 1.6 Direct Injection Turbo

Opel is offering a new top-of-the-line powertrain in the stylish Grandland X. The cool-looking sports utility vehicle (SUV) will receive a new turbocharged direct injection petrol engine, which is available with a seamless-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission. The all-aluminium, PureTech power unit not only delivers strong performance, it also produces low emissions, thanks to a state-of-the-art exhaust after-treatment system that includes a Gasoline Particulate Filter (GPF). Opel Grandland X 1.6 Direct Injection Turbo with start/stop (fuel consumption1,2: 7.2-7.1 l/100 km urban, 5.0-4.9 l/100 km extra-urban, 5.8-5.7 l/100 km and 132-130 g/km CO2 combined) already meets the future Euro 6d-TEMP emissions standard.


The four-cylinder engine with dual overhead camshafts and four valves per cylinder develops peak power of 133 kW/180 hp at 5,500 rpm and maximum torque of 250 Nm at only 1,750 rpm. The lively power unit, which is also notable for its direct throttle response, accelerates the Opel Grandland X from zero to 100 km/h in only 8.0 seconds and up to a maximum speed of 222 km/h. In combination with variable valve lift, the variable valve timing system enables infinite adjustment of valve timing and duration, for further improved fuel economy and emissions.



Of course, the new top-of-the-line engine will also be available on the Opel Grandland X with the premium “Ultimate” trim, which includes a string of luxurious features as standard. The sporty yet elegant SUV thus becomes even more of an eye-catcher with 19-inch “BiColor” alloy wheels and silver coloured roof rails. Furthermore, premium ergonomic seats, leather trim, the Denon premium sound system and numerous ultra-modern assistance and infotainment systems promise a feel-good factor.
