    Because they don't catch fire. Instead they just surrender to the heat and break down

    I'd rather have that than go down a Ford blaze.

    Seriously though, Opel has developed some pretty durable and widely used powertrains in the past under GM. They certainly have the know how and skill to produce a good 4 potter. Not that PSA has not done that with their brilliant 1.6t Prince engine (BMW used them), but seeing as they have Opel, might as well use them.

    Agreed I love Opel but the french part worries me a little bit. But credit where credit is due PSA's 1.2L PureTech engine is an absolute gem of an engine. Would take that over that Ford 1.0L EcoBlaze unit any day of the week.
