LEAK! - Here are the first official images of Opel Astra

The next generation of Opel Astra was expected to debut at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. Since it did not show up there, the car is expected for anytime soon. In fact, sooner than it may have seemed before, as the first official images have emerged, even if in a low definition.

The new hatchback will be for sale in three and five door versions. Astra, by the way, will continue to have a whole family of cars, such as a station wagon and a convertible version. A sedan would also be expected, but only if this car was to be sold in emerging countries. For these markets, GM must send only Chevrolet Cruze.

Engines will remain the same ones used by the current Astra, ranging from 75 bhp to 240 bhp in its petrol powerplants and from 90 bhp to 150 bhp on diesel ones. We can also expect a six-speed manual gearbox and an adaptive chassis control, similar to the one VW has offered in the sixth generation of Golf.
