This is the actual shape of new 2010 Opel Astra which makes its debut at this year’s IAA Motor show and will go on sale some months after that. New Astra is 15 cm longer than the previous generation.
The Insignia-inspired design of the Astra features typicall opel ingridents like the tear-shaped headlights, but its party piece should be the striking C-pillar which is nicely proportioned and not only is pretty, it results in a bigger luggage space, which has always been a problem with the old Astra because of its curvy back.
2010 Opel Astra gets some new features like electric parking brake, lane assist system, park assistant, and adaptive dampers. It also can be had with all-wheel-drive system for an extra pay.
Other on-going projects at Opel include the estate version of Astra, Sport Tourer and new Zafira for 2011.
