About 80 percent of net sales are expected to market English, German, Italian and Russian. 163 hp diesel variant would be the biggest seller, accounting for about 75 percent of sales.
2.2 CDTI diesel one of the most efficient in its class
Output level is 2.2 CDTI diesel engine, which is available in two power levels. 120 kW/163 hp version can be combined with front-wheel drive or full, and manual or automatic transmission. Top 135 kW/184 hp version is also available in both types of transmission, but four-wheel drive is standard with this engine.
And a maximum torque of 350 Nm at 1750-2750 rpm, and the combined fuel consumption of 6.3 liters per 100 kilometers (CO2 emissions: 167 g / km) front-wheel drive manual version, 163 hp diesel engine is a Antara ideal base for the range. Acceleration time is 9.9 seconds (zero to 100 km / h) and a top speed of 189 km / h, showing excellent dynamic range.
184 hp combined with peak-drive diesel impresses with 400 Nm of torque (1750-2750 rpm) and offers excellent handling, excellent performance and a comfortable ride in all situations. Time sprint of 9.6 seconds and a top speed of 200 kmh continues to demonstrate these qualities. Meanwhile, the economy and environment are still a priority (fuel consumption: 6.6 l/100 km Emissions: 175 g / km CO2).
This block is one of the more efficient new diesel engines in its displacement. High specific power, low emissions, reduced noise and vibration behavior as well as handling and long life is ensured by the precise timing of the various systems components and design features, including:
The engine block has a high structural rigidity (improved noise and vibration behavior)
The engine block cooling jacket design horizontal fins (cooling optimized)
Dual flywheel (reduced transmission of vibrations)
The oil pump is integrated with the balance shaft module (estate, reduces engine vibration)
The new DOHC aluminum cylinder head variable swirl control (and the vortex flow)
Water-cooled turbocharger with air cooling and variable turbine geometry (cylinder loading and handling)
Training, maintenance-free timing chain with automatic chain tensioner
The fuel injection pressure of up to 1800 bar (preparation of the mixture)
The compression ratio reduced to 16.3:1 (increased power, reduced emissions and combustion noise)
Optimized heating system (improved starting in cold weather)
Exhaust gas cooling system with a highly effective (reducing emissions)
Maintenance-free piece of diesel particulate filter (DPF)
Piston oil spray cooling
2.4 ECOTEC gasoline engine: an interesting alternative
As an alternative to the two diesel engines, a newly developed 2.4 ECOTEC gasoline unit is also available to improve the Opel Antara. 123 kW/167 hp and maximum torque of 230 Nm (at 4600 rpm), combines an attractive brand of high performance driving. As the front-wheel drive, this engine is available with a manual six-speed transmission, four-wheel drive and the format is either a manual or automatic six-speed transmission.
Performance, fuel consumption and emissions of all the data confirm the efficiency of this engine. The acceleration time (10.5 seconds), speed (190 km / h), fuel consumption (8.8 litres/100km) and CO2 emissions (206 g / km) leave little to want.
The 2.4 ECOTEC engine also provides high technology features. These include:
Variable parameters on the intake and exhaust camshafts (usable speed range, the development of torque, fuel economy)
Noise optimized piston skirt
Aluminum engine block and cylinder head (weight, engine temperature)
Oil Pan structural
Precision sensors to determine the positions of the crank and camshaft (preparation of the mixture of fuel timing, ignition)
Piston oil spray cooling
On top of a very low fuel consumption and emissions, the level of service to the Opel Antara is also very limited: regular inspections of gasoline and diesel are only necessary every 30,000 km or once a year. When the oil must be changed are determined by use and driving conditions and are marked with a gauge of life of engine oil.
Optional manual or automatic transmission
Two new systems of six-speed transmission, a manual and automatically combines efficiency with a wide dynamic range and comfort. High-tech features such as precision designed "Monoblock" cog and synchronization features intricately designed and structural elements in the manual transmission ensure minimum operating force is required, fluid changes, and low vibration operation low friction.
A special design features of the automatic transmission is available free pairs of gears deformation in the crankshaft, which makes the transmission unit particularly compact and versatile. A very global space allows both exceptional responsiveness out the first report and a "long" sixth stop on the cruise with a relaxed, low fuel consumption at low speeds. Drivers have two driving programs available at the touch of a button - if they want to "cruise" or drive more aggressively. The transmission also includes an automatic step brake system, which prevents unwanted upshifts in a moving vehicle or while driving downhill.
Optional front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive
Depending on their specific needs, Antara buyers can choose between a sporty crossover, both front-wheel drive or full floating unit. The latter combines a powerful front-wheel drive - such as fuel consumption - the wide dynamic range, power and active safety.
The main components of electronic traction control system total ITCC (Intelligent controlled torque coupling) is the conductor of electromagnetic coupling and multiple hydraulic wet clutch, which are incorporated into a single unit module rear axle. This solution provides several advantages: it guarantees a quick response, is compact, lightweight and maintenance free.
Appropriate force distribution
While the front wheels are also responsible for four-wheel drive Opel Antara, the driving current is continuously recorded and compared between electronic stability control and CCIC (CES) on parameters such as wheel speed, the angle turning and throttle position.
If sufficient traction threatens to cause the front axle slip, the system reacts in 0.1 seconds, seamlessly redistribute power. According to the driving situation and unconditional power range from 100 percent front-wheel drive and 50 percent on both front and rear axles, and all variations in between.
New Set-up: More agile and more comfortable ride
A variety of modifications and fine-tuning measures have allowed the current Opel Antara greater dynamism and flexibility, increasing driving pleasure and ride quality.
Changes includes optimized front axle McPherson struts with spring rates have increased, and support new upper leg, which is milder in the horizontal and vertical, but more rigid in the diagonal plane. In combination with a provision of modified shock and a stabilizer bar reinforced and extended bearing guide bushes flexible ensures that the increased stiffness in roll, more direct steering feel and ride comfort improved.
The multilink rear suspension, with three transverse links and a leak on each page was also redesigned and refined. The arms are now hydraulically damped to subsequent structural isolation has improved. Optimized leg mounts and coil springs with increased spring rates also mitigate the effects of road shock. In combination with a stabilizer bar, a wide track (1569 mm front, rear 1576 mm) and wheelbase is long for this category of vehicle (2707 mm), these measures to ensure better traction, stability and a better balanced suspension comfort.
The new Antara related to the speed rack and pinion steering system has a binding power steering gear and changed through a reinforced shaft with a slider. The rigidity of which is an increase not only provides specific information for the driver, but also requires a minimum of effort during maneuvers.
The braking system is elegant all-rounder also meets the high active safety chassis and excellent driving dynamics. Large, vented discs front and rear brakes combined with an optimized four-channel ABS and Brake Assist to ensure the function of deceleration of confidence at all times and under all road conditions.
A wide range of advanced systems will help to further improve active safety. They include:
Electronic stability control (ESC), including ARP (Active Rollover Protection) and CBC (brake control)
HSA (Hill Start Assist) to eliminate the rollback on slopes
DCS (Descent Control System) that keeps the car a top speed of rise of 10 km / h by braking the front wheel without interference from the driver when driving down steep slopes
Electronic control yaw moment AOD (Active on Demand), which helps to minimize understeer or oversteer, changing the torque front and rear
TPMS (Monitoring System Tire Pressure) controls the pressure by means of sensors on the wheels and wheel activates an alarm on the individual display driver, if the loss of more than 0.3 bar pressure
EDC (engine drag control) in versions increasing the torque of the diesel engine, if there is danger of wheel lock (caused by motor breaks down high-speed change or release the clutch in a low voltage )
Standard equipment in all-wheel drive variants of the vehicle includes an automatic level control, which maintains a constant distance from the ground to load or pulling a trailer.
Opel Antara and a lot more to offer in terms of utility. Four-wheel drive variants can take loads up to 2000 kg (FWD: 1500 kg) and trailer stability program (TSP) also ensures that all trends are swinging in the car-trailer is recognized by a sensor Lace and effectively prevented by reducing engine power and controlled deceleration.
In addition to better handling characteristics on the road, the AWD Antares also offers an impressive off-road ability. Deviations in rough terrain are facilitated by: the front with variable electronic control / power distribution in the rear, a ground clearance 176 mm, 450 mm deep at Ford, with a view to an angle of 20 to 24 degrees before and back and a tilt angle of 18 degrees.
By design, the Opel Antara range of alloy wheels fitted with 17 or 18 inches (235/65 R 17 tire size and 235/55 R 18). A new, eye-catching 8 x 19-inch wheels are optional in combination with tires 235/50 R 19.
Comfort and high utilization
The Opel Antara combines not only the dynamic driving performance with the elegance of prestige, his concept of body-mind through also offers a high degree of comfort and convenience feature. It begins with its length and width (4596 x 1850 mm), which occupy more space than a standard mid-size cars and crossover to strike the perfect companion for city driving. The seat height (the height of the vehicle 1717 mm) provides a restriction in all directions from the road, while the characteristics of the powertrain management and excellent agility to ensure precise performance and trouble-free life maneuver.
The interior features refined ergonomics can really feel comfortable on the front and rear headroom, and plenty of space to the side. Behind the cabin, and features tilt-back foot space (946 mm), which is a segment of a generous. Opel Antara emphasize the characteristics of the vehicle ideal for travel or adjustable crossover with compelling features and functionality. Its trunk can accommodate up to 420 liters of cargo normal configuration, this will increase 865 liters when the rear seats are folded down and up to 1420 liters when loaded to the roof. The rear seat (60:40 split) and the front passenger seat back can be folded down to accommodate items up to 2.63 meters in length.
Recently renovated, high-quality interior environment
To match its comfort and interior space and high-end design, the Antara offers new "climate" optimizations. Automatic transmission, air conditioning system with fully modified inside the air filter ensures a comfortable cabin environment and the environment.

Behind the cabin also offers practical storage space that can expand the multi-functional center armrest (optional).
Ensure the cleanliness of luggage under the tray, and optional FlexOrganizer system. This includes two side rails on both behind the walls, with a different (optional) FlexOrganizer elements, such as networks, partitions, rods and hooks can be cut. This means that the load can be divided into parts that hold the load and prevent shifting.
Unparalleled practical integration "FlexFix" system rack
Another excellent example of innovation and practical functionality are the "FlexFix" rack. He retired as a drawer and can not be implemented quickly with minimum effort. When not in use, remains virtually invisible, integrated into the rear bumper and then discarded as a possible break in the link exterior design harmony. FlexFix can carry two bicycles (tire size from 18 to 28 inches), while maintaining full functionality on board. This means that the interior space and cargo area are available without restriction and should not be installed, removed or stored.
Important steps for maximum acoustic comfort
Other invisible, but the most notable innovations in the years 2011 Opel Antara model include a wide range of measures designed to insulate against noise and vibrations. This includes:

Upper structure of the body (low-frequency rumbling noise, etc.)
Windshield add rolling (engine and wind noise)
Door rubber seals (engine and wind noise)
Body seals (wind noise)
The body water repellent (wind noise)
The rear of the body (isolation from the load)
Other NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) measures to ensure acoustic comfort in the Opel Antara is at the front console, in the C and D pillars, tablets wheel arch and the roof, direction, speed and edge doors. The efforts of the acoustics experts lead to a successful outcome: the noise is inside the new Opel Antara has been reduced by more than 3 dB (A) and therefore more than half.
Performance characteristics of electronics, also improved. Now include systems for effective control system for an electric locomotive and the state of the battery (check "RVC" regulated voltage) and the optimization of thermal insulation and energy efficiency diesel versions of the fan (W "PWM" Pulse Modulation).
High levels of passive safety
Complementing the chassis and support "large reserves of active safety, the Opel Antara also offers a comprehensive passive safety features. They are based on a rigid body structure, comprising 37 percent of high-strength steel.
The side of the beam, the crossbar and the front axle, a panel member support tools and solid reinforced doors before you distribute the collision energy of a collision along the optimized load paths, helping to prevent deformation passengers. B-pillars for the construction of custom metal blank sheet of variable thickness to provide security in case of side impact. A reinforced structure in the rear with large longitudinal beams and a fuel tank located in front of the rear axle to round out the security measures of the body.
In the case of minor accidents on the front of the box low-speed crash and subsequent special collision energy absorption, thus reducing the potential repair costs. Opel has also taken the necessary precautions in terms of long-term quality: all areas exposed to corrosion of the body are galvanized on both sides.
