Opel unveiled the all-new Astra Sedan, the fourth version of its popular model, which joins the five-door hatchback, the Sports Tourer station wagon and the GTC. By the time of its launch in June, the Astra Sedan will be available with a choice of seven engines: four gasoline units (74 kW/100 hp to 132 kW/180 hp), of which three can be combined with a six-speed automatic and three diesel engines (70 kW/95 hp to 96 kW/130 hp).
Moreover, Opel will offer two fuel-efficient Astra notchback 1.7 CDTI ecoFLEX models with Start/Stop system which combine powerful outputs of 81 kW/110 hp or 96 kW/130 hp with diesel consumption figures as low as 3.7 liters per 100 kilometers.
This means only 99g/km CO2 emissions. The new Astra notchback sedan (Length/Width/Height: 4,658/1,814/1,476 mm) promises to offer more interior space thanks to a wheelbase of 2,685 mm and a big trunk which comes with 460 liters of volume - 90 liters more than the five-door model. Regarding the design, we do like the new sedan as it looks way better than the old model.
The rear is characterized by the steeply raked rear screen, the integrated deck spoiler, and the broad sweep of the sculpted bumper.
Although the car will be offered especially in Germany and Spain, the new Astra Sedan is expected to be a best-seller in Eastern and Central Europe, particularly Russia and Turkey. The world premiere of the new Astra Sedan will take place at the Moscow Auto Salon 2012 (August 29 - September 9).
