Opel Group CEO Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann will unveil the all-new Astra at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt in September this year. Until then, only fully camouflaged engineering development prototypes will be seen, but Dr. Neumann said the new Astra will feature striking design, high efficiency and an abundance of innovations.
Dr. Neumann said the latest Astra, which was created from a clean sheet of paper. is a car that is more efficient in all respects. Space is used much more efficiently while the engineering teams have also managed to dramatically reduce the car’s weight, making it more agile while also having a positive effect on fuel consumption. The new Astra will be powered by latest-generation state-of-the-art engines.
The new Astra will once again set standards in the compact class. Amongst others, it will be the first new Opel model to be launched with Opel OnStar’s unique connected service that is ready to help and rescue you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.”
More information about the South African launch will be made available at a later stage.
