New entry-level Opel Astra 1.6 Sport
"This model will be an attractive option for buyers, mostly younger age group buyers, that want to move up from the small car class at an attractive price/specification level," says Malcolm Gauld, Delta Motor Corporation Sales and Marketing Director.
As the entry-level model in our Astra Hatch range, the Astra 1.6 Sport combines a host of comfort and convenience items with a safety package that includes a driver's side airbag.
The Astra 1.6 Sport features Opel's 16-valve Ecotec engine technology; five speed transmission; advanced, performance tuned chassis design; electro-hydraulic power steering and contemporary interior styling package common to all vehicles in the Astra range.
Included in the car's price is the Opel Fixed Cost Motoring Plan.
This plan is included in the retail price of the vehicle and it covers all service and maintenance costs, including the cost of fair wear and tear items, for the first 60 months or 100 000 kilometres of ownership, whichever occurs first.
Additional motoring peace of mind comes in the form of breakdown assistance, accident assistance, and residual value protection in addition to the normal 3 year 100 000 km warranty cover.
The 1.6 litre Opel Ecotec engine that powers the new Opel Astra 1.6 Sport produces 72 kW at 6 000 r/min with maximum torque of 142 Nm at 3 600 r/min.
Its acceleration time from standstill to 100km/h is 11.5 seconds and its maximum speed is 193 km/h.
