Additionally, the enlarged box reduces noise. The air cleaner, the box that filters the intake air was boosted in terms of volume. People who already own an Opel can have their vehicle retrofitted by an authorized Opel service partner.

Only three dynamic lines are used to create tension and define the outline of the silhouette. For best possible ride control, the ramp control sub-mode further stiffens the damping, ensuring that the wheels are in contact with the road instantly after hitting a bump for optimal control.
The diameter of the wheel is now 360 mm, compared to 370 mm in the rest of the Astra family, making the steering sensation even more precise, sporty and direct. The maximum charge pressure has been increased to 1. By separating the flows, their dynamics are exploited to the maximum effect. The new material is both agile and strong and because of its strength it only needs to be one to two millimeters. And simpler to ensure the kids are seated safe and secure. In addition, pneumatically adjustable cushions are available for the flanks of the performance seat. The sheet is filled with a composite material of polyamide and fiber glass.
Opel is the first car manufacturer to use such a sensor in a production vehicle. In addition, the torque plateau is very wide and stretches all the way to just under 5000 rpm. This means the vehicle experiences a soft landing even when the springs on the struts rebound on an uneven road surface. The geometric cross section of the intake air duct was significantly increased. Both front seats increase the sporty and dynamic driving experience by introducing cutting-edge weight-saving material, a lower seating position and enhanced side support. Their main objective was to further reduce the exhaust back pressure. The exclusivity of the one-day event starts with the location.
For example the roofline that gently arches across the length of the car and then descends in a seamless sweep through the steeply raked rear screen to the sculpted aerodynamic lip at the end of the trunk-lid. The Opel engineers developed a completely new state of the art engine air intake system in order to feed as much air to the turbocharger as possible. The outlet valves are sodium-filled and all valves are actuated via low friction roller valve levers. As a result, they should be used as a guide only.

The direct injection engine system is based on several elements: a high pressure pump driven by the camshaft increases the pressure of the fuel drawn by the electric pump from the tank up to 155 bar at idling the injection pressure is 50 bar.

The humidity sensor uses a special polymer that reacts electrically to the amount of water vapor in air and then measures the relative air humidity. Limited slip differential for more stability In order to convert the power of the new Astra into efficient propulsion, the front axle is equipped with a mechanical multi-plate limited slip differential. Opel is the only manufacturer in the compact high performance segment to offer such a device in a production car. It can be installed ex works or on request by Opel service partners. Opel continues the successful Astra model family with a new sporty and stylish sedan.
All the mechanical modifications to the engine in the engine intake, exhaust and turbocharger, were accompanied by optimizations to the engine control unit. The foundation was laid by the with over 3,000 units sold 2005-2008. More than one reason why at Opel we embrace a philosophy of forward thinking that helps your money go further. You do not acquire ownership rights to any content, document or other materials viewed through the site. The filtered air has to pass through a humidity sensor inside the air cleaner. As the name suggests, the resonator reduces the hissing sound made by the turbocharger when it reaches its maximum pressure limit.
Every buyer must check Opel car history before getting a car loan or credit. The new turbocharged engine is based on the latest 2. In this 2013 astra could brag good technical specs. All-new engine air intake system Opel engineers developed a completely new air intake system in order to further improve the air flow dynamics, reduce the pressure loss and therefore boost the engine performance even further. In this way, braking points and section speeds can be analyzed. During its development, engineers have tried and tested it in the toughest of motor racing conditions in various locations around the world.
Annual sales for European high performance compact cars above 271 hp are around 14,000 units. When one of the front wheels spins, the two multi-plate packs inside the differential work like clutches and subject the drive to a clearly defined resistance. These can be ordered directly ex works for new cars. Other engine features are two counter-rotating balance shafts, low-maintenance chain drive for the camshafts and a cast-on oil filter housing, which is easily accessible from above. No other production vehicle has such a feature. Both camshafts in the engine respond automatically via an electro-hydraulic cam phaser to match valve opening times to the engine load status via the engine control unit. The Meriva is designed to keep you comfortable, however long the journey ahead.
