New Vauxhall Astra with Start/Stop Technology

The new Vauxhall Astra 2.0 CDTi Hatch now has added Start/Stop technology.

The new Vauxhall Astra 2.0 CDTi Hatch now has added Start/Stop technology. By adding this new technology to the existing Vauxhall Astra 2.0 CDTi Hatch Vauxhall has maintained the models robust performance but reduced its fuel consumption and Co2 emissions.

The Vauxhall Astra 2.0 CDTi Start/Stop also incorporates Vauxhall’s CleanTech Combustion Technology, which guarantees exceptionally clean combustion and reduces engine noise, too. CleanTech is a closed-loop system which adjusts fuel injection to the combustion process in real time. Combined with reduced friction camshaft bearings, the system ensures that the engine runs more quietly and efficiently.

The new Vauxhall Astra 2.0 CDTi Start/Stop Hatch is capable of 0-60mph in just 8.5 seconds; the new version’s fuel consumption improves by over 5mph on the combined cycle from 57.6mpg to 62.8mpg. Both private and business users will benefit from the Start/Stop’s lower VED band, which will save them £65 each year (down from £95 to £30).
