The Germans from Opel released photos and details on the new Corsa 1.3 CDTI ecoFlex, a model able to return a fuel consumption of just 3,3 liters/100km (85,6mpg UK) which makes it the most frugal diesel in the range.

The model in question is the three-door variant and benefits from several fuel saving features such as a variable displacement oil pump, reworked ECU, new transmission and low rolling resistance tires.
