Opel has released images that provide a first glimpse of the upcoming Opel Astra. The central styling element of the body will be a further development of the Opel Vizor, which first appeared on the Mokka. The brand’s face extends to the front, seamlessly integrating technologies like the super-slim IntelliLux LED headlamps.
At the rear, the name of the new Opel Astra will be positioned in the centre of the clean, taut surface of the tailgate. The styling revolution by the Opel style centre headed by Mark Adams also involves the cabin, which takes up the Pure Panel approach inaugurated by the Mokka with two horizontal, driver-oriented widescreens displaying essential information. Physical controls are kept to a minimum and the few buttons present are finely crafted.
Designed and engineered in Rüsselsheim, Germany, the next-generation Opel Astra will be available as a 5-door hatchback or station wagon. The car, built on the Stellantis Group’s EMP-2 platform, will be launched in late summer and be on the road by year-end.
