The Opel Astra GSI Would Make A Great New Buick

Here's a look at the lightly disguised forthcoming Opel Astra GSI fitted with the muscular 240HP turbocharged Ecotec, Sure would make an awesome Buick hot hatch, significantly bringing down the brand's average buyer age. Just sayin' GM, just sayin'. [WCF]




2011 Opel Astra GSI first spy photos

It will be some time before Opel decides to take on the Golf R with another version of the Astra OPC. But these spy shots reveal an upcoming Astra GSI that may just fill the void for Opel enthusiasts until then.

The GSI is seen here with a camouflaged front bumper, which tells us the model will have a slightly altered front fascia from the standard Astra - a more aggressive look according to our spy photographer. The GSI will come with a dual exhaust at the back and a two-tone interior with sports seats. Also, the GSI will feature wider wheel arches, according to German car mag Auto, Motor und Sport.

The last Astra OPC came with a 2.0 liter turbocharged ecotec engine with 240 PS (177 kW) while the previous GSI was rated at 200 PS. We can expect the new GSI, second in the Astra pecking order, to come in somewhere in between.

The Opel Astra GSI will likely make it to dealer showrooms by the end of 2010.
