Opel Mokka Gets New 136PS 1.6 CDTI Engine, Averages 4.1 L/100 KM

Opel continues to roll out the 1,600cc “whisper diesel” across its range, with the Mokka crossover being the latest model to get it in the 136PS (134hp) version.

The new four-cylinder 1.6-liter engine replaces the current 1.7-liter diesel in the Mokka lineup, adding more power (+6hp) and torque (+20Nm), as well as a lower fuel consumption.

Also available on the Astra family and other Opel models, the 1.6 CDTI produces 136PS (134hp) and 320Nm (236lb-ft) of torque, with a specific output of 85PS (84hp) per liter. With this engine, the Mokka accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 9.9 seconds and from 80 to 120 km/h (50 to 75 mph) in fifth gear in 9.9 seconds. Top speed is 191 km/h (119 mph).

Mated to a six-speed manual transmission, the Euro6 engine averages 4.1 l/100 km (57.6 mpg US) and emits 109 g/km CO2. That’s almost 0.5 l/100 km less fuel and 11 g/km less CO2 than the previous 1.7-liter engine.

That’s due in part to the standard Start/Stop system and the low-friction, six-speed manual transmission. The new engine with the manual gearbox is offered for both front- and all-wheel drive models, while a six-speed automatic transmission is only available with front-wheel drive.

The new engine version for the Mokka will debut at the Paris Auto Show and will arrive in dealerships from early 2015. Orders will be taken from the end of this year.
