2013 Opel Astra Saloon

Opel has added a four-door Saloon model to its current Astra range, joining the likes of the five-door hatchback, Sports Tourer and pretty GTC Coupe.

With a wheelbase of 2,685 mm, and measuring 4,658 mm in length, 1,814 mm in width and standing 1,476 mm tall, the Notchback Astra’s separate trunk provides 460 litres of volume – 90 litres more than its five-door counterpart, with this figure increasing to 1,010 litres once the 60:40 split rear bench has been folded flat.

When the orders books are opened, later this month, customers will have a choice of seven engines; four units units, ranging in output from 74 kW (100 hp) to 132 kW (180 hp) three of which can be specified with a six-speed automatic transmission, and three diesel options varying from 70 kW (95 hp) to 96 kW (130 hp) – including two 1.7 CDTI ecoFLEX models developing 81 kW (110 hp) or 96 kW (130 hp). Also utilizing a start/stop function, a consumption figure of 3.7 litres per 100 kilometres can be achieved, along with a CO2 figure of just 99g/km. Early next year Opel will also be offering its super-efficient 1.6-litre SIDI ECOTEC four-cylinder petrol engine in the Saloon.

Recognizing a strong demand for compact Saloons in Eastern and Central Europe, notably Russia and Turkey, Opel will be débuting its new model at the Moscow Auto Salon 2012 from August 29 to September 9.
