After cleaning up with some major awards in Europe, the 2016 Opel Astra has arrived in South Africa, ready to do battle in the marketplace. The Astra K arrives with the same equipment Europeans have fallen in love with, and Opel is confident in its ability in South Africa.
The first batch of Opel Astra K will arrive Friday, April 15, as they unload into dealerships across South Africa. The 2016 Astra arrives with three turbocharged, Ecotec engines for buyers to choose from including the 1.0-liter, 1.4-liter and 1.6-liter.
Weight is also down 200 kilograms from the previous Astra, which has done wonders for the Astra’s ride and fuel economy. Not to mention a smaller exterior footprint with a more spacious interior.
So, South Africa, watch your local Opel dealers. The Astra K is coming, and it’s looking to conquer.
