The new generation of the Opel Astra OPC is being highlighted once again, this time with the car manufacturer announcing its performance details.
According to the German based automaker, the 2013 Opel Astra OPC is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6 seconds. The hot hatch is burning an average of 8.2 liters of fuel every 100 km and its CO2 emissions have dropped by 12 percent to 189 g/km. Opel says that the 0 to 100 km/h acceleration, which is over in 6 seconds, is the same as the Renault Megane RS but it can’t compete with the Volkswagen Golf R.
The 2013 Opel Astra OPC is being powered by the 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine, which is developing a total output of 280 horsepower and it has a peak torque of 400 Nm. The unit is being mated to a six-speed manual transmission. In standard, the German hot hatch is being offered with tinted rear windows, rear park assistant, two-zone automatic air conditioning system, Navi 600 navigation system, on-board computer, AFL+ adaptive forward lighting, LED rear lamps and 19-inch lightweight OPC wheels. The model has been priced at 34,250 euros for the entry-level version.
