The model we are waiting for, the new convertible coming from Opel and Vauxhall is scheduled to be released in 2012. The new thing is that it will be under a different name than the one we were informed so far, so it will not be Astra.
This is not the only change as the hard top configuration will be changed in favor of a lighter one, of a retractable soft top.
Mark Adams, European design chief at GM said that this 2012 model looks nothing like an Astra and of course the name had to be changed. Also thanks to its new design, people will have to change their perception they had on the Vauxhall and Opel.
When it will finally arrive on the European market, different versions of the Peugeot 307, Renault Megane and Ford Focus will be waiting for it. Let's not forget the well-known Volkswagen Eos. Opel needs something new, something that will have an impact otherwise it will stand no chance in front of its competitors mentioned above.
