Our opinion

Breath of fresh air in the mechanical range of the Opel Astra. The drive 136 hp 1.6 CDTI is one of the first proponents of the new generation of Opel engines. In gasoline, there are also new features like the 1.6 SIDI Turbo 200 hp. In both, performance, low fuel consumption and performance are promised more refined. We consider it good news that the Astra receives this and many other improvements, but against its competitors has always penalized for a slightly higher weight. According to information handling MOTORWAY, the new generation Astra will undergo a fairly significant weight reduction.
