Previoulsy, only sneak peeks of the wagon were available, glimpses had shown the wagon’s shape. The design revealed today shows the complete body of the car. The new Opel Astra has the look combined from the Sports Tourer and the Hatch. The body was designed keeping in mind the two different Astra cars.
The new Opel Astra has increased the storage capacity. The new capacity is 1630 litres of storage space, while the previous model had a 1550-litre capacity. To make complete use of the storage capacity the 40/20/40 split rear seats need to be folded down.
The Opel Astra is only 4mm longer than the previous model. The previous model of the Opel Astra was 4698mm long. But it did not have the significant increase in cargo-hauling capabilities.
The inclusion of the General Motors’ evolved D2 platform cuts 200kg from the kerb weight. In Europe the car will be available in both petrol and diesel engines. The engines will have 1.4- and 1.0-litre turbo petrol and 1.6-litre turbo diesel options.
