Opel is playing on its home ground on this one, so it’s only natural to go with all guns blazing as it’s making its comeback.
The upcoming model will share a lot in common with the Peugeot 5008.
Opel is still selling the Insignia Country Tourer in Germany and other European countries.
Honda is leaving, Vauxhall may built the Astra elsewhere, and the rest of the industry is anticipating hard times in case of a no-deal Brexit.
The SUV is Vauxhall’s first mainstream PHEV and will arrive at dealerships in early 2020.
In this powertrain configuration, the Combo Life sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 12.3 seconds.
The facelifted Astra will go on sale on August 1 in seven grades, priced at £18,885 OTR.
The sixth-generation Corsa will make its world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
PSA boss Carlos Tavares also said that they have already found an alternative factory in southern Europe.
The facelifted Insignia was spied testing at the Nurburgring in Grand Sport and Sports Tourer body styles.
New owner PSA did not pay much attention to the 2020 Astra’s design which stays largely the same.
The 2022 Astra will be based on PSA’s EMP2 platform and will be made in Russelsheim.
