2010 Opel Astra leaked before Frankfurt debut

The 2010 Opel Astra has been leaked prior to its world debut at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

The 2010 Opel Astra will be build on the same platform as the “upcoming” Chevrolet Cruze and Volt with design influenced by the Opel Insignia. The powertrain lineup will feature an entry-level 1.4L 4-cylinder with output ranging from 120-hp to 140-hp. Also available for the European market will be a range of diesel engines including a 1.3L, 1.7L and a 2.0L turbocharged engine. An ecoFlex model is expected to join the lineup in 2010.

Sales of the 2010 Opel Astra 5-door variant will start early next year with a 3-door and wagon model in early 2011. Recent reports suggest that with Saturn ending production later this year, Buick will be getting Astra in 2011 as a 2012 model year.
