Opel is moving the new-generation Astra compact upscale with two levels of plug-in hybrid power, an all-digital dashboard and improved driver-assistance systems.
The Astra has moved to a Stellantis platform, the third-generation EMP2 architecture for compact and midsize vehicles, from a General Motors one.
Production for Opel and Vauxhall versions starts this autumn at Opel’s factory in Reusselsheim, Germany, with the first deliveries at the start of 2022. The current Astra is built in Gliwice, Poland, and Ellesmere Port, England.
A station wagon version will follow the launch of a five-door hatchback.
