New Astra's interior stuns

2009-06-19 10:00

Opel has revealed the new Astra's interior for the first time, exposing an upmarket interior. The new Astra will be unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show in September, and it appears as if the cabin is a major shift towards premium design and quality.

Like its Insignia sibling, the Astra features Opel’s “blade” styling language, with sleek shapes for the door handle, steering wheel mouldings and gearshift - which is centrally mounted on the dashboard like a sports car.

Interior ambient lighting also plays a big part in trying to create a more upmarket ambience.

The latest Astra is the sixth-generation range. However, there is uncertainty when it will arrive in South Africa.
