Opel Astra facelift revealed image

Opel has released the first official images and details with the facelifted version of the Astra, which is also coming with a new engine and technological system adopted from the Insignia.

According to the German based automaker, the Opel Astra facelift is getting a new front fascia and new engines throughout the lineup. The facelift is being applied for older versions, like the five-door hatchback and the Sports Tourer, which are now receiving a new front grille, inspired by the one found on the GTC, along with redesigned LED headlights and modified rear fascia right where license plate is being fitted. The panoramic windshield, which has attracted a lot of customers into the brand, is now available as an option of the Astra GTC and Astra OPC, in a new shape and made from a single glass piece.

Besides the exterior modifications applied to the Astra lineup, Opel has also developed a new engine, which is developing a total output of 195 horsepower. The most important feature of this unit is the fact that it’s offered as a biturbo diesel, the same one found on the Insignia. This isn’t the only “thing” borrowed from the bigger brother and the Astra is also getting Opel Eye and the AFL+, along with a rear-view camera, park assist, adaptive cruise control and blind spot monitor system with alarm.
