Johannesburg - Opel’s South African distributor Unitrans has announced that a diesel version of its Crossland X will be hitting showroom floors by the middle of June.
Only one derivative will be available at launch in the form of a 1.6-litre turbodiesel manual model in Enjoy specification. At R348 450, it is priced identically to the 1.2-litre turbopetrol Enjoy.
Interestingly, though, the combined fuel consumption figure of 5.4 litres per 100km that Opel quotes is actually the same as the claimed figure for that aforementioned 1.2T petrol derivative.
Driving the front wheels, the 1.6 turbodiesel engine produces 68kW and 230Nm.
Standard features on the Enjoy model include Opel’s six-speaker IntelliLink touchscreen infotainment system, front and rear park assist, cruise control, electrically adjustable and heated exterior mirrors, ESP stability system, Hill-Start Assist, Lane Departure Warning and six airbags.
