Exclusive: New-gen Opel Astra will not be seen in Geneva image

The new generation of the Opel Astra is still a few months away from its official unveil which, according to a company representative, will not happen during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

The 2016 Opel Astra has been caught on camera by our spy photographers a few times until now but it seems that the company has no plans of unveiling it at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, this March. The announcement has been made by a company representative who was contacted by inautonews.com.

“There will be no Astra at Geneva Motor Show, where our major world premiere will the Opel KARL (Vauxhall Viva for UK), our new min-5 door entry model”, said the official.

Rumor has it that the future generation of the Opel Astra will be influenced, in terms of design, by the Monza Concept. The vehicle is believed to be lowered, compared to the current model, and to weigh less kg. The Astra will be coming with an independent rear suspension, a more spacious cabin, a prominent tailgate and a longer roof spoiler, amongst others. The engine lineup is expected to include new 3- and 4-cylinder units. The car is said to be assembled in Poland and in the United Kingdom. More details on it are limited at this time.
