Vauxhall introduces new 113bhp 1.0-litre turbo petrol - compact ADAM first to get it

Vauxhall has unveiled an all-new 1.0-litre three–cylinder petrol engine, known as SGE (small gasoline engine), that develops 113bhp and 166NM of torque.

Fuel efficiency is improved by 20 per cent compared with the current 1.6-litre naturally aspirated unit that powers the Astra.

This new 12-valve, 1.0-litre turbo petrol will appear first in the compact ADAM next year linked to an all-new six-speed gearbox with a dry weight of only 37kg, weighing about 30 per cent less than its current counterpart.

More engines in this new modular family will follow soon with three and four-cylinders and up to 1.6-litres.
