Opel's new SUV will be based on the Antara GTC concept (Gran Turismo Crossover), which is said will be available in South Africa too.
The Antara GTC concept featured a full-length panoramic glass sunroof and there was a 'pantograph' rear tailgate, which opens upwards and outwards over the roof. It is unclear from our photos how the production model's tailgate will operate but it seems as if it will be more conventional.
Our spy photos reveal the Antara's interior, which appears modern with a simple dashboard layout.
Under its bonnet will be the latest version of the GM-Daewoo 1.9-litre diesel engine, developing more than 150kW in twin-turbo form. Insiders say that there will be a choice of petrol units too.
