Vauxhall battles for fleet business with new engine derivatives

VAUXHALL will have a 1.8-litre Vectra powered by liquefied petroleum gas available at launch next year.

The dual-fuel car will be joined by 1.8, 2.2 and 3.2-litre petrol engines and 2.0 and 2.2- litre diesel engines.

During next year, a fire-breathing six-speed 2.0-litre turbo SRi version of the Vectra should arrive, closely followed by a car based on the Signum II concept car, revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

This will be a cross between an estate and MPV that Fleet News understands will feature the innovative flex-7 technology that has already made the Zafira a hit with customers.

The firm is also developing engines with direct injection petrol technology, to offer diesel levels of performance with petrol refinement.
