    Opel had built a reputation for providing stylish cars, and the simple well balanced proportions of the recently introduced Opel Rekord Series A had continued the tradition.

    The unapologetic slab-sided functionalism of the Kadett B disappointed some commentators. The range of bodies was widened with the Kadett B. In addition, for the first time since , it was again possible to buy a four-door Kadett "Limousine". In September a fast back "Limousine" model, designated as the "Kadett LS" and offered with two or four doors, joined the range. At launch, and for the next two years till September , all Kadett Bs were fitted with an OHV four-cylinder "over-square" water-cooled engine.

    There were as before two levels of power: The compression ratio was further raised, now to 9. By the time the Kadett B was replaced in there had been no fewer than six differently sized engines available for it from Opel: Only 95, Kadett Bs were fitted with the 1.

    In the shorter term, in March this became the entry level power unit for base level versions of the recently introduced Opel Ascona and Manta models. This engine was not fitted in cars destined for the domestic market, but was used for cars sold in export markets, primarily Italy , where annual car tax rates increased very considerably for cars fitted with engines of above 1.

    This engine offered From the second half of , the four-door Car-A-Van model was added, alongside the updates to the rear suspension. In Ford added a 1. Both the Kadett and the Ford by now took up more road space than a typical European 1. A suitable unit already existed, having been fitted in the Opel Rekord since The engine in question had been the manufacturer's second all-new engine design since the war , although much of its underlying philosophy came from General Motors developments in Detroit and from experience with the new engine developed for the Kadett A earlier in the s.

    Opel's so-called Camshaft in Head CIH engine followed the trends of the time in replacing side-valves with an overhead valvegear configuration, which was no doubt facilitated by the over-square architecture of the cylinder block: However, instead of operating directly on the cylinder valves, the camshaft still operated the valves using rods and rocker arms because, unusually except within general Motors the camshaft itself was positioned too low above the cylinders to permit direct action from the camshaft on the valves.

    One reason for this may have been cosmetic. As on the smaller Kadett engines with their side-mounted camshafts, the "in head" camshaft on the Opel CIH engine was chain driven, a weight-saving option which reduced lumpiness and friction at higher engine speeds when compared with the gear-cogs which had been used to drive camshafts in the previous generation of Opel engines.

    The engine, known as the 1. After August the compression ratio was reduced to 9. In practice, though the engine was listed for the Kadett B until , very few of the Kadetts produced in and were fitted with it as the focus of dealers' and customers' attention switched to the manufacturer's newer Ascona and Manta models. The car came with a four-speed all-synchromesh manual transmission as standard, gear selection being performed using a centrally positioned floor-mounted lever.

    From November on the larger-engined cars, and from February also on the smaller-engined Kadetts, it became possible to specify the alternative of a "GM Strasbourg" Turbo-Hydramatic three-speed automatic transmission, available at the extra cost initially of Marks.
