1.6T gone?

Post by nsanderson » Thu Dec 07, 2017 9:19 am

Hi all,

Just checked on the SRi configurator and the 1.6 T petrol engine seems to have gone? :shock:

Is this part of PSA's plans to remove the best engine in the line up so their own power plants don't look so bad? Seems you can still order it on the Elite Nav but that's it?

As has the Bi-Turbo. I wonder if it's a way to make sure those who want more power get the most expensive model? Although the decision to not give the "Sportier" model the powerful power train is a bizarre one!

Both engines are still available on the SRi VX-line nav and the Ultimate as well - bizzare indeed!

...and Elite too.

So just a tidy up of the engine and trim line up. I suppose it is a little strange to remove the most powerful engine from the SRi. It must mean the SRi VX Line isn't selling so well

Boy! Am I glad I am an early adopter, having bought one of the first 1.6 cars off the production line in 2016. This car still makes me smile after 12,000 miles in 20 months. Looks like only available to the high flyers now and in the future, 'tis worth it though!

In the 6 months since I ordered mine (I've had it for 3) I still haven't seen another on the road. I figured that with time there would be more but I guess Opel/Vauxhall have other ideas 😉

It looks like our 1.6 petrol turbo SRIs and SRI Navs are going to be rare animals.

I probably would not have gone for the Elite as it has an electronic handbrake and cost was more than I fancied paying.
