New Astra sedan on its way

General Motors has announced the imminent arrival of the all-new Opel Astra sedan.

Complementing the existing range of Astra hatchbacks, the new sedan marks the return of the four-door Opel Astra to South Africa. Featuring the same new-age feel, high levels of quality, premium build and stunning design as the rest of the Astra range, the new Astra sedan has been ‘engineered to attract’.

Christopher Cradock, Opel brand manager at GMSA, said there was a lot of excitement at Opel for the new Astra sedan, to be launched here in October.

“The new Astra sedan follows the high standards forged by the hatchback, and we expect a warm reception by South Africans who tend to favour sedans,” Cradock said.

The sedan range comprises the new Astra sedan 1.6 Essentia, 1.4 Turbo Essentia, 1.4 Turbo Essentia Automatic and the range-topping 1.6 Turbo Cosmo. Pricing will be made available at launch.
