At the Paris Motor Show this fall, Opel Astra sedan will present a new generation.
Now the car is the latest road tests. Unlike the previous generation that was going on in Poland and Russia “Avtotor” (in Russia, sold under the name of the Family), the novelty will be produced at a factory in Germany. The car will no longer be a budget version for emerging markets in Eastern Europe and borrow a five-door hatchback all the most modern systems, power units and transmissions. Judging by the first spy photos over the sedan serious designers have worked and he will no longer look like a hatchback with a welded luggage. Apparently, the car is 4.6 meters long, will receive the prefix and the Berlina is aimed at those who miss the old days of classical Vectra. Moreover, Opel Astra Berlina will appear not only on the European market, but will be sold in North America under the brand Buick.
Recall that a segment of the golf-class sedans in Europe is experiencing a real renaissance. In the center of attention – the next generation VW Golf, which will receive and dynamic three-volume version. The Germans already have a four-lot coupe – VW Passat CC, which in some markets simply referred to as VW CC. For example, in U.S. sales this stylish models are much better than “just” Passat. Rather, to avoid confusion, coupe-sedan based on the Golf will be named Jetta, but just a sedan in the range from Volkswagen’s Golf-class no more. The car will be built on a new modular platform MQB. If we compare the future of Golf CC Jetta, it will be longer (4650 mm wheelbase – 2650 mm), wider, but slightly lower.
For the seventh generation hatchback Golf Volkswagen will offer several engines with twin-turbo 1.2 TSI and 1.6-liter turbodiesel varying forcing. For Golf CC will be the base 1.4-liter gasoline turbo with switchable-cylinder 140 hp. And the most powerful two-liter power unit will be 200 hp.
In 2013-2014, its compact four-door sedan will be shown and representatives of the premium segment – Audi and Mercedes-Benz. But the model of the first will still be more like a classic sedan, but Mercedes-Benz builds on the platform in this class four-door coupe. In addition to these two companies and is preparing its new Alfa Romeo. The appearance of Giulietta Coupe will be dedicated to the Italian brand’s return to the North American market.
At one time, if prepared a cv writing could also take part in the promotion of car brands on the market.
