Opel released details of the upgraded Antara crossover that’s been thoroughly revised for the new year. They wanted to give the car a more elegant look, so came up with a new front grill with bold logo plus fog lights and chrome bezels, modified rear lights and new 19-inch wheels, which are optional.

The new Antara also benefits from a new center console with extra storage solutions, new materials and added interior and exterior colors, as well as an optimized instrument graphic and effective interior lighting. In terms of features, the only things worth mentioning are standard electric parking brake and the Hill Assist System.

The upgrade of the drivetrain has been more significant. The Antara comes with a newly-developed 2.2 CDTI Turbo diesel with either 120 kW/163 hp or 135 kW/184 hp. The 163 hp variant is available in front-wheel or all-wheel drive as well as with manual or automatic six-gear transmissions. The 184 hp also offers a choice of manual or automatic transmissions, and comes with all-wheel drive as standard.

The upgraded 2.4 liter, four-cylinder now comes with 125 kW/170 hp and is available in front-wheel or all-wheel drive and comes as manual or automatic six-gear transmission.

While the chassis and dynamics of the Antara are also tweaked for more comfort, Opel has also improved all powertrains for better fuel efficiency and less emissions. Even the two available transmissions have undergone completely new developments to improve efficiency and dynamics.
