With the all-new Corsa set to debut publically at the Paris Motor Show next month, Vauxhall won’t be too worried about drawing a crowd. The British brand won’t stop there though, and is set to reveal a new 2.0-litre CDTi diesel engine as well.

Replacing the current range-topping 161bhp 2.0 CDTi, it generates 168bhp and 400Nm of torque, and will be unveiled in the Insignia and Zafira Tourer. It's compliant with the new Euro 6 emission standards, and Vauxhall claims engine noise, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions have been reduced, alongside the 5 percent increase in power and 14 percent extra torque.

It’ll be available from next year, the first in a new family of large diesel engines developed in-house by a global engineering team based in Turin, Russelsheim and North America.

“This excellent new powertrain is part of the company’s €4 billion investment in product and powertrain development, which is helping to bring 23 new products and 13 new engines to market” said Tim Tozer, Vauxhall’s Chairman and Managing Director. “This new large diesel engine is extremely important to Vauxhall as a sizable amount of customers chose a 2.0-litre CDTi engine.”

According to Vauxhall, key to the diesel’s enhanced performance is the redesigned combustion chamber, re-profiled intake ports and a new fuel injection system. The 2.0-litre CDTi also uses the BlueInjection Selective Catalytic Reduction system, an after-treatment that removes NOx from the exhaust gases to provide cleaner, petrol-like emissions.
