2016 Opel Astra rendered image

The future generation of the Opel Astra is getting ready to be unveiled, sometimes next year, but until that will happen, the looks of it remain unknown for anyone outside the company.

Spy photographers from the Old Continent have managed to capture the new generation of the Opel Astra on camera several times now, while it was being tested out, but because of its heavy camouflage fitted on its body, its design remains unknown. The image posted above represents a rendering created by DesignRM but chances of the final product looking exactly like this are very limited.

The 2016 Opel Astra is believed to be influenced by the Monza Concept and, when compared to the current model, this will be lowered. The model in question will get independent rear suspension, a more prominent tailgate, a longer roof spoiler, a more spacious cabin and the newest technologies. As far as the engine lineup goes, expect 3- and 4-cylinder units which will be significantly updated. The new generation of the popular C-segment hatchback will be produced in Poland and in the United Kingdom. The vehicle will be officially presented to the public sometimes next year, probably in Geneva, in March, or six months later, in Frankfurt.
