The all-new Opel Astra sedan has been released in South Africa, marking the return of Opel’s C-segment sedan and the addition of four new models to complete the Opel Astra range in South Africa. The new sedan, which is based on the Opel Astra hatchback, arrives on South African shores with guns blazing and a sculptural design which is set to attract the style-conscious minds and eyes of compact sedan buyers.
The Corsa OPC has emerged out of Sir Jackie Stewart’s “Green Hell” as an agile and feisty hot hatch ready to thrill South African drivers. With only 65 of the limited Corsa OPC Nürburgring Edition models produced by Opel globally allocated to South Africa, the latest addition to the Opel range is likely to become a sought after collector’s item.
Opel’s revolutionary Meriva continues to offer an innovative and ergonomic design in an elegant and refined package. To increase the value offered to customers, General Motors South Africa has consolidated the Meriva range into one key model, the new 1.4 Turbo Enjoy model available with higher levels of specification than before.
The all new Opel Astra GTC was shown for the first time to the international motoring press at the Frankfurt Motorshow in September last year.

As a product of Opel’s latest design language the Meriva shares a number of its design elements with the Opel Astra and all new Astra GTC, particularly the blade motif in the body sides. A distinctive wave introduced to the belt-line adds a unique visual character to the Meriva while at the same time improving visibility and imparting a sense of space. The Meriva has its own defined personality but remains clearly a member of the family of latest generation Opels.
