These are the top athletes of the current Opel vehicle range: the OPC models – equipped with powerful engines that guarantee exceptional driving dynamics and precise handling. Experience the innovative technologies now available for your favorite Opel carline and treat yourself to an extra portion of driving pleasure.
FlexRide – Adapts car behaviour for a better ride
FlexRide acts in two ways. Firstly, it lets you switch between three different driving modes to suit your mood: Normal, relaxed Touring or exciting Sport. And then, regardless of which mode you’re in, it automatically adjusts the damping to provide maximum safety and control.
Improved handling with Adaptive 4x4 all-wheel drive
The active all-wheel drive system improves handling and stability in all driving conditions. Adaptive 4x4 combines the best characteristics of conventional mechanical and hydraulic all-wheel drive systems.
Watt’s link rear axle: Better handling, more stability and even more comfort
The compound crank rear axle has been enhanced with the cleverly positioned Watt’s link to ensure excellent performance on every road. This innovative rear axle layout has advantages in size, weight and efficiency over a classical multi-link axel design. It also improves safety: the pivoting center link is attached to the underbody where it absorbs lateral forces on the suspension caused when cornering. Originally found in racing and rally cars, this technology has been further developed by Opel to reduce the noise of the road in the cabin.
More performance, less consumption: Downsizing with ecoFLEX engines
Our new turbocharged ecoFLEX engines make a very impressive case for the principles of downsizing. With friction-optimized valve trains, sodium-filled exhaust valves, shortened pistons and an overboost function, the engines raise performance and torque while lowering consumption and emissions.
Downsized consumption and emissions meet full-sized refinement and big-hearted power. The new 3-cylinder 1.0 Turbo ECOTEC® Direct Injection engines use the best in direct injection and turbo technology to make them superbly efficient. A choice of 66 kW (90 hp) or 85 kW (115 hp) of economical driving fun with just 99 g/km CO2 puts the ADAM way out ahead.
