Opel Astra Diesel Biturbo comes to Spain, and does so with a renewed engine 1.6 BiTurbo CDTI 160 BHP of power that tries to position itself as the alternative more powerful diesel in the range of the new Opel Astra. Recall that the compact Opel has been fully renovated. Has received new aesthetic, it has been modernized in all aspects, it is more technological, more comfortable, and lighter. See test of the Opel Astra 2016. With two bodies, the five-door, and the family style, the Opel Astra now receives a new diesel. And what offers this engine?

Opel Astra 1.6 CDTI 160 CV account with a diesel engine biturbo, designed to not only to win power, but also push and response in low.

The price of this Opel Astra diesel, biturbo, and with 160 BHP of power, is of 23.900 € . But also keep in mind that the finish most basic for this engine is the Dynamic, very full and finishes above access of the range Opel Astra, which are Selective, and Expression.

To equal finish, this 1.6 CDTI 160 HP, which is marketed with a manual gearbox, 600€ more expensive than the 1.6 CDTI 136 HP with a single turbo, 1,200 euros more expensive than the 1.6 CDTI 110 CV, and 300€ cheaper than the 1.6 Turbo 200 HP and gasoline.

By placing it in the market, I would have to say that this mechanism equates to the Opel Astra with the Volkswagen Golf engine 2.0 TDI of 150 HP, resembling more to this than an alternative to diesel, but with sports aspirations, like the Volkswagen Golf GTD.
