2012 Opel Astra SUV
Besides the Opel Corsa SUV, the rescue could be for Opel Antwerp, Opel was based on the new Opel Astra build an SUV. This Opel Astra SUV would be a worthy replacement for the Opel Antara. The Opel Antara is not really a success and that we might declare the car because obviously its platform with the Chevrolet Captiva shares. The Opel Astra us SUV would be reminiscent of yesteryear, the Opel Frontera, a very capable off-roader that before the SUV craze scored very well.
Thanks to the impression we can already picture an idea of how an Astra SUV could look like. The car will clear the new Opel design language which the Opel Astra and Opel Insignia features today. However, the SUV with a much rougher eyes wider wheel arches and a prominent guard. SUV in the Astra profile looks rather slim, so the illusion of a Crossover SUV is aroused.
Under the hood of the SUV Opel Astra we will most likely engine from the Astra and Insignia-range retrieval, since the engine no longer meets the Antara EURO5 standards. In the petrol will include a 1.4 Turbo ECOTEC with 140 horsepower, a 1.6 Turbo ECOTEC with 180 hp and possibly the 2.0 Turbo with 220 hp. In diesel engines would be room for the 1.7 CDTI with 110 hp and the 2.0 CDTI with 130 hp or 160. The Astra would like the Opel SUV Antara optionally be equipped with four-wheel drive, front-wheel drive are standard.
