The 10 millionth Astra by Opel

The 10 millionth Astra by Opel rolled off from the assembly line in Bochum, Germany today – a Silver Lightning Astra Station Wagon CDTI 1.7 equipped with the special features, celebrating this wonderful production milestone.

Having more than 500,000 units sold last year on Europe alone, Astra's the absolute best-selling auto in the Opel palette plus follows in the Opel’s Kadett footsteps and the tradition of the brand in building quality compact vehicles.

“The Astra is synonymous with Opel. Its success is also a recognition of our expertise in the compact segment in which Opel has been playing a pioneering role since 1936 and the launch of the first Kadett” says Hans H. Demant, Opel Managing Director. “The Astra symbolizes our brand; offering bold design, versatility and advanced technology that meets customer needs. And it is fun to drive”.
