The new version of the German hatchback Opel Astra is almost ready for the presentation. The car can get engines of French production.

Over the next few months, the German company Opel will show several of its updated models, and one of them is the 5-door Astra hatchback, which has been tested on German public roads. This prototype looks almost ready for production and has minor visual improvements compared to today’s hatchback.

Judging by the headlights, it is most likely the Astra in the middle set. We expect that more expensive versions of the model will receive a fully LED head optics.

We can not notice any changes in the back of the prototype, but the camouflage film there still can hide the updated elements – perhaps the updated rear lights graphics. However, the ribbon covering the badges on the back door suggests that more important changes may occur under the hood.

Opel now belongs to the French concern PSA, which has already announced that it wants to see more French engines in German cars. The new Astra can get PSA turbocharged gasoline and diesel engines, including the 1.2-liter Peugeot THP turbocharged engine and the 1.5-liter BlueHDi diesel engine. Of course, nothing has been officially confirmed yet, and the PSA may eventually decide to wait with this until the next generation Astra appears.

Interestingly, in the test car there is no camouflage in the cabin – this means that changes in the interior will be limited only by the appearance of new trim options and upholstery. However, the infotainment system needs to be updated.
