As GSI model, it is elected with a cW-value of 0.30 to the world's best series production vehicle concerning aerodynamics. This is probably not only because this version has particular spoilers. Even the standard version looks quite streamlined in contrary to the somewhat angular predecessor. Just as the classic form of the first Kadett remains in the minds of most Opel lovers, is with the more recent edition of the Kadett this form necessarily connected with 'cheese triangles' rear. One is inclined to believe the technicians the 1200 hours the wind tunnel.
Therefore, under the metal remains much unaffected. The engines and undercarriage are taken over. After all, one immediately begins with larger engines than in the Opel Kadett D. Thereby at first one still has an old engine, the 1.2-liter with lower camshaft and plenty of conventional ignition. Also, the transmisions switch four-speed.
So the most development is put in the body and the manufacturing methods. Also a promise is ultra-modern rust protection, but not really complied. Later will show that the Kadett E here falls back compared to his competitors. Instead, the buyers again have not for the first time at Opel spoiled for choice between four and later five (GSI) equipment packages. 05/08
