Opel Astra Sedan previewed – going to Moscow Motor Show image

The German based automaker Opel has pulled the wraps off its latest creation, the new generation of the Astra Sedan, ahead of its official debut at the 2012 Moscow Motor Show.

The new generation of the Opel Astra Sedan is inspired, as you can see from the images posted below this article, by the Opel Insignia, and the model is actually related to the Buick Verano. The 2013 Opel Astra Sedan is 4,658 mm long, 1,814 mm wide and 1,476 mm tall, being actually 239 mm longer than the five-door version of the Astra. The wheelbase is being shared by the four-door and the five-door Opel Astra, at 2,685 mm, but the extra length of the sedan is adding 90 liters in boot capacity, to a total of 460 liters or even 1,010 liters with the rear seats folded.

The 2013 Opel Astra Sedan will be available with a choice of seven engines, four petrol units and three diesels, with the most powerful petrol being the 1.6 liter turbocharged unit, with its 177 BHP, and the most fuel efficient being the 1.3 liter oil-burner, producing 94 BHP, returning 76.3 mpg and emitting just 99 g/km of CO2. The new family of 1.6 liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engines will be launched with the sedan in early 2013. The new generation of the Opel Astra Sedan will be sold in Western European markets, in Russia, in Turkey and in other markets, but the model isn’t aimed towards the United Kingdom.
