Opel/Vauxhall finally provided a live unveiling of the all-new Astra GTC in front of attending media at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany.
Despite early online releases of photos, several specifications remained tight-lipped until now, such as the Astra GTC’s official power output. Officially, there will be a choice of five different engines, ranging between 100 hp (74 kW) and 180 hp (132 kW). There’s also a new 1.7L diesel ecoFLEX variant equipped with a Start/Stop system offering either 110 hp (81kW) or 130 hp (96 kW).
Those numbers aren’t exactly Ford Focus ST territory as originally thought, but a HiPerStrut suspension system up front and a Watt’s Link (Z-Link) suspension system in the back will undoubtedly give the Astra GTC the ability to carve through twisty mountain roads with ease.
The wait continues for an OPC/VXR model.Google+
