Pictures from Vauxhall show the new Astra prototype. The heavily camouflaged prototype car has been to both the frozen arctic Swedish Lapland (with temperatures as low as -30 degrees) and the Dudenhofen Test Centre (in Germany) for safety and comfort testing.
The demanding test programme of the All-New Astra is going exceptionally well. The development team – which, by the way, comprises of more female engineers than ever before – has created an uncompromisingly cool new generation of Astra that will thrill our customers.
Said Astra Chief Engineer, Mariella Vogler.
During development we made sure that the new generation Astra will once again offer drivers and passengers a lot of driving fun and comfort. On the one hand, our sophisticated and dynamic design ensures that occupants will always feel safe, even at high speeds on the motorway. On the other, it offers plenty of comfort – even on poor road surfaces – for a relaxed driving experience.
Said says Vauxhall’s head of vehicle dynamics, Andreas Holl.
