    It is 180PS, a good engine and drives very much like a 2.2 direct non turbo engine in the Vectra C but with more low down torque.

    You would think it is too small for the car, but it works well. They are capable of 230bhp to 240bhp with intercooler, exhaust and re-map. The 1.6 Turbo engine shares many parts with the 1.8 engine, the cylinder head is 100% from a 1.8 VVC engine.

    Economy is not great from an early review I read of it, was down in the 20's I think... Depends on a million factors though, as always...

    I had one for 4 days, and driving it normally without thrashing it, it returned an average fuel figure in the 30's.

    Then when I gave it some, it dropped to 21! But that goes for any car.
