At the 64th International Motor Show in Frankfurt am Main the Astra GTC will have its world premiere.
Inspired by the Opel GTC Paris Concept it does not share any exterior element with other members of the Astra family.
For example, the storage volume in the cockpit has been improved by 50% over the previous generation GTC.
Karl-Friedrich Stracke, Chief Executive Officer of Opel/Vauxhall said that the Astra GTC is the sporty member of the Opel family and it will bring a breath of fresh air into the sports compact segment.
The Astra GTC mechatronic chassis features an exclusive architecture.
The major change is front suspension with High Performance Strut(HiPerStrut) which reduces tire flops, which allows the car to accommodate larger-diameter wheels,reduce kingpin inclination, reduces torque steering reactions and increases cornering power.
Customers can order the Astra GTC with a choice of four powertrains - one diesel and three gasoline units.
The new Start/Stop technology which reduces fuel consumption is standard equipment for the Astra GTC.
Astra GTC use innovative technologies like the second-generation Opel Eye front camera system that informs the driver about the distance to the vehicle ahead, and the Bi-Xenon Advanced Forward Lighting (AFL 4).
Mark Adams, Vice President, Opel/Vauxhall Design said that the Astra GTC is a clever and affordable dream car.
