Opel plans on bringing several new products to China in 2013, and will equip the imported models with its exclusive technologies including FlexRide chassis control system, Adaptive Forward Lighting (AFL), and a panoramic windshield.
FlexRide Chassis Control
For those not familiar with FlexRide, the chassis control technology allows drivers to change the car’s character with the push of a button. Three modes are available, including Standard, the comfort-focused Tour mode, and the more performance-oriented Sport mode. FlexRide is capable of managing accelerating, shifting, suspension characteristics, and the intervention threshold of the car’s electronic control system.
Adaptive Forward Lighting
Meanwhile, Adaptive Forward Lighting utilizes bi-xenon, gas-discharge headlamps that offer several lighting functions such as adverse weather light, dynamic curve light, cornering light and high beam light assistant, as well as LED daytime running lamps. The system improves overall visibility, especially in poorly-lit situations.
Finally, the beautiful Panoramic Windshield available on the Astra and Zafira provides an enlarged front glass that extends over the heads of passengers. Combined with narrow A-pillars and wide side windows, Panoramic Windshield provides an impressive field of view and a light, airy, and comfortable driving experience.
