The new generation of Astra will follow in 2021 and as stated the head of the brand, Stephen Norman, this will be “something much more than an Opel version of the Peugeot 308”. Opel will benefit from the technology and the know-how provided by marrying with PSA Group, without sacrificing its character and temperament.
So, we expect Opel Astra to adopt a more sporty design that incorporates the design language of the German company and more specifically, some version of the new mask that we saw for the first time in the GT X Experimental prototype last year. Further back, to enhance the coupe sensation, it is not ruled out that the handles are “hidden” in the pillars.
For the interior, Opel will place great emphasis on quality, practicality and technology, with modern entertainment and information systems. The information indicates that there will be no shortage of sensationalism, such as some version of the 3D Peugeot 208 digital dashboard.
It also features a top-notch, plug-in hybrid set of 300 horsepower that we’ve already seen in Grandland X. This will be used for the OPC version of the new Astra giving it performance and electric autonomy of 30 kilometres.
