Opel has revealed online today the 2014 Astra which from a design point of view doesn’t bring any exterior changes, or at least we don’t see them. The most important modification can be found under the hood where customers can now configure their Astra with a newly developed 1.6-liter CDTI engine which churns 136 HP and a maximum torque of 320 Nm. When equipped with this engine, the 2014 Astra needs 10.3 seconds to perform the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run and will keep on going until it reaches a top speed of 124 mph (200 km/h).
Opel says the car with this CDTI engine will return 60.3 mpg US (72.4 mpg UK or 3.9 liters / 100 km) with corresponding CO2 emissions of 104 g/km. The cabin comes with a new variant of the IntelliLink infotainment system that boasts a 7-inch touchscreen display. The base model gets Bluetooth/USB/AUX connectivity and a CD player, while the fully-equipped version benefits from Navi 950 with European mapping.
There’s also a new Active package encompassing a Piano Black trim, LED daytime running lights, cloth & leather seats and other goodies as well.
