Default Opel Ecotec 1.0L

I was helping my mate connect his B-line lol sub and amp, and I noticed that the 03plate Corsa C is a 3 cylinder 12v I was like LAWL and the size of it is dinky

My Astra has a 4cylinder 8v plant but is a 1.6 but is probably not much better

They make motorcycle engines bigger than that. That car must be slower that sin.

the 03 Corsa C isnt just avaliable with the 1.0. 1.2, 1.4, 1.6 and even a 1.8. 1.3 and 1.7 diesels were also available. my mum had the 1.2 corsa c and it was slooooooow! id hate to think what the 1.0 would drive like! lol

But it saves a little bit of insurance and road tax, not to mention fuel prices in Europe.

I would like to see that climb a hill with a car full of people. If it makes it i would be impressed, haha. That is TINY! My engine is probably bigger than that car . Someone said theres even a 0.8L car engine. What kind of gas mileage do those things get?
