    Default Twin Turbo Diesel News

    I had a chat today with someone in the know and this is the latest but still to be confirmed.

    The current 130 and 160 diesel will be dropped totally from the range.

    The Twin Turbo diesel will replace it, but in 130PS, 160PS and 200PS states of tune.

    If this is the case, it does make alot of sense. As the 160PS twin turbo diesel in theory should be a stronger performer than the single turbo 160, but lower on emmisions and better mpg.

    Saab do this on the 9-3. The 9-3 has 130PS, 160PS and 180PS 1.9 diesel engines are all twin turbo.

    Twin turbo for the lower powered ones. Yes that makes sense liking the sound of this.

    Is this due next year then? Or will these changes delay the outing of the twin turbo?

    From what I read vauxhall delay with the twin turbo because they needed to get more bhp from it the first one was 180 bhp but was a slight increase over the 160 they wanted around 200 bhp +

    The Bi-Turbo 190PS 2.0CDTi will start being built from January - can't say anything has been mentioned about dropping the 130 & 160 to use just the Bi-Turbo in various states of tune though!
