Vauxhall Corsa ecoFLEX emits 88g/km

The Vauxhall Corsa ecoFLEX is the most environmentally friendly Vauxhall diesel ever.

The Vauxhall Corsa ecoFLEX now emits 88g/km of carbon dioxide, making it the most environmentally friendly Vauxhall diesel ever.

The three-door Corsa, fitted with Vauxhall’s stop-start-equipped 94bhp 1.3-litre diesel engine, now achieves 85.6mpg while emitting 88g/km of CO2, making it 2.4mpg more fuel-efficient and 6g/km cleaner than the previous model.

The five-door version of the 2012 Corsa ecoFLEX returns figures of 83.1mpg and 89g/km.

In order to achieve these economy improvements, the uprated Corsa gets an improved oil pump, better low-rolling-resistance tyres and new mapping for the engine’s software.

From 1 November, the Corsa also benefits from a new manual gearbox, which Vauxhall promises provides smoother gearshifts and is easier to use when the transmission is cold.

Aside from improving the economy of the 1.3 diesel model, Vauxhall has also introduced improved suspension and damper settings for all Corsa models – except the VXR Nurburgring Edition – aimed at improving ride comfort.
