Leaks of new designs come from all over, and the source of this image is quite odd. It has appeared on a user forum of a Brazilian car magazine
but shows the new generation of the Astra that GM Europe is getting ready. Now that its main competitors - VW with the Golf (Rabbit) and Renault with the Mégane - have finished their new revisions, GM must have felt left behind. For now, all information we have is the bad image you see to the right, which was taken on a camera phone during a video presentation to German Opel dealers
. This means the only thing we can currently discuss is aesthetics, which is more than the teasers we saw in September
and tells us that the new Astra looks quite similar to the Opel Insignia. Remember, this is the Astra that shares a platform with the new Chevy Cruze and Volt.
