New Opel Astra TwinTop In Depth

18 posts in this topic

I like every bit of it.  I hope that comes over for Saturn.

Doubtful. We already have the G6, which from the looks of it the entire rear is based. on.

I like the interior, but the generic-Euro-look of Opel is getting tiring. The Tigra looks more interesting, IMO.

I agree with you there-its a draw between this and the new Ford Focus CC-but that one has way too long of a rear decklid, and Opel's exterior styling has been nothing special for the past...oh.....okay, maybe that 1982 concept car and a few others come to mind, but nothing in recent times.

I like thew interior, I like the center stack and I could totally be comfortable driving this around wiht the top up and windows down as a "hardtop". :D

Too bad it's front wh..... well you know. :wink:

The concewpt is pretty cool, and the interior looks pretty good. But all those lines in the body where the roof is hinged looks horrible

Not to mention, those rims have been overused since the 90's

Opel's look isn't generic to me. Especially in Astra GTC guise. It's exciting. Volkswagens latest cars are, in fact, generic and boring in contrast to Opel.

I prefer the exterior of the G6.

Is there much of a size difference? I'm asking because the headlights/taillights and grille seem to be the only exterior styling changes made to the G6 convertible. Otherwise they look almost identical to these eyes.

Umm, there's a whole size class of difference.

G6 to Astra is like Civic to Accord, or Cobalt to Malibu, Sunfire to Grand Am.

How is it boring? It looks great..probably the best looking hardtop so far. Love teh front end and how the rear deck doesn't look huge (a la Euro Focus). It looks much nicer than the G6 too...I'd Buy it!
