Opel to Debut Four Models in Frankfurt

Opel will be debuting 4 new models and 7 new engines at Germany's premier auto show next month.

Opel has promised four new models will make their debuts at next month's Frankfurt Auto Show. We have already received some information as to what those models will be. The Astra GTC compact coupe will make its premier, along with the Zafira Tourer, a next generation concept Combo Van which will be Fiat-based, and an experimental sports car shrouded in mystery but is guaranteed to impress. The sports car will be an Opel/Vauxhall work that will "wow the press and public with its level of innovation."

Opel will also debut seven new versions of their ecoFLEX engines. The engines included should be the Agila 1.0 (gasoline, 109 g/km CO2), Meriva 1.3 CDTI (109 g/km CO2), Astra 1.7 CDTI (99 g/km CO2), Insignia 1.4 Turbo (gasoline, 134 g/km CO2) and Insignia 2.0 CDTI (115 g/km CO2) - as well as the ecoFLEX versions of the premiering Astra GTC and Zafira Tourer. Concerning the new engines, the German automaker says "Opel also demonstrates that conventional powertrains still have fuel-saving potential without compromising driving fun with the expanded ecoFLEX model portfolio."

The new models are expected to go on sale in Europe by the end of 2011 or by early 2012 at the latest. The Frankfurt Auto Show begins next month in Germany.
