Default 2012 Opel Astra GSI Spied Testing




Quote:
These new images, which offer the best look yet at the new variant, reveal a front bumper almost identical to the wide-open mouth of the Astra GTC Paris concept revealed last year.
The rear of the spied test car, while not as lary as its concept predecessor, sports a pair of exhaust tips at each corner.
In Australia, the Astra's Holden-badged predecessor featured a SRi turbocharged variant in its line-up, producing 147kW - a figure that, at the time, saw it rival the Golf GTI.
With the new Golf 6 GTI offering 155kW, Opel will likely aim to continue the GSI's status as a GTI-fighter.
In concept form, the three-door GTC concept is powered by a turbocharged and direct-injected 2.0 litre four-cylinder petrol engine producing 213kW. While this figure is likely to fall substantially in the next-generation GSI, it opens more than a few doors for the new model.
Opel has yet to confirm which models will be offered in Australia, but it will be looking to make an impact - and the GSI will be likely be one of its flagship models.
“Australia is one of the most important new opportunities for Opel as we continue to reposition Opel as a global European brand in markets like the Middle East, Asia-Pacific and South America,” Opel CEO Nick Reilly said when announcing the brand's coming Australian debut.

Gross, it's like a Mazda and 2.5i had a bastard child.

Doesn't look terrible but I think I preferred the prior generation Astra (especially that 3 door!)
