Motor Authority: Opel shows off interior for new Astra

Recommended Posts


After months of previews, teasers and small official photos, the 2010 Opel (Vauxhall) Astra has finally been let out of the bag. The hatch has been revealed in high-res photos and for the first time we get a look at the upcoming car’s stylish new interior.The new Astra is crucial for Opel as it will need to recover market share lost by the current model to Ford’s strong-selling Focus hatch as well as fend off the Fiesta compact. It may or may not see U.S. sale as a Saturn given that brand's uncertain future, but with Europe's love for hatches and the increasingly tight fuel and emissions standards - not to mention the taxes that go with them - the hatch will be key for Opel's sales at home.The car will make its official world debut at this September’s Frankfurt Motor Show, before arriving in European showrooms by the end of the year.

Awesome! Just change all the red lighting to blue (I really like the ambient lighting throughout the cabin), slap on a waterfall grille and some trishield badges, and Buick can market this thing as a sort of baby Enclave crossover type vehicle. It's sharp! It's what the 2010 Mazda Mazda3 could've been. Since the Vibe has been axed along with the rest of Pontiac, GM needs to make plans to get this car over here sometime next year as a Buick.

Yeah, this Astra traded the sharp lines of the last gen for softer lines, which is a design language right up Buick's ally.
