Premiere for the 11th generation of the most popular Opel model, with the German company making the debut of the new Astra at the Munich show, next September. The new Astra is based on the EMP2 platform developed by PSA, which carries the new Peugeot 308, with the German model being offered in a hatch and Sports Tourer (wagon) version, which will be presented later.
Stylistically, it adopts the latest Opel design philosophy, which we saw for the first time in the new Mokka, while it also has the new company logo. Aesthetically it differs significantly from the 308, and in front we see the slim IntelliLux LED lights, while inside we find a 12-inch screen for the digital instrument panel and a 10-inch one for the infotainment system. Its length reaches 4,374 mm, its width is 1,860 mm. (+51 mm) the height is 1,471 mm. and the wheelbase at 2,675 mm, being increased by 13 mm. meters. The luggage space amounts to 422 liters, ie 52 liters increased compared to the model of the previous generation.
Mechanically, Opel did not provide information on the powertrains that will drive the new Astra, but logic says it will be equipped with a range of petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid powertrains, the same as the one found in the new 308. There will be the 1,200 hp three-cylinder PureTech petrol engine in two versions, 110 hp with 205 Nm of torque and 130 hp with 230 Nm of torque, which will be combined with a 6-speed manual transmission and an 8-speed automatic transmission (only in the strongest version).
Next there will be the 1,600 hp four-cylinder BlueHdi diesel engine producing 130 hp and 300 Nm of torque, which will be combined with a 6-speed manual transmission and an 8-speed automatic transmission. There will also be two plug-in hybrid versions, with the first combining the 1,600 hp PureTech 150 hp engine and an 81 kW (110 hp) electric motor, with a combined output of 180 hp and 360 Nm of torque.
The more powerful version will combine the 1,600 hp PureTech 180 hp engine and an 81 kW (110 hp) electric motor, with a combined output of 225 hp and 360 Nm of torque. Both plug-in hybrid versions will be front-wheel drive and will carry the automatic e-EAT8 gearbox.
In the future there may be an OPC version, which will wear a plug-in hybrid 300 hp engine. Production of the new Astra will begin this year at the Russelsheim plant in Germany.
