Spyshots: 2013 Opel Astra Sedan
We suspect hat this sort of car, and not the upcoming Junior will be the salvation of Opel and its numerous employees. This three-box design offers a lot more room in the boot than the hatch, and it’s not as much of a quick conversion as the boxy previous generation sedan.
The engine range for he sedan will of course be borrowed from he hatch, meaning you’ll start with the normally aspirated 1.4- and 1.6-liter units, producing 100 and 115 hp respectively. The petrol range will probably top out with the turbo 1.4L with 140 hp or the more powerful 180 hp 1.6L turbo. As for the diesel range, your best bet is going to be one of the three power outputs for the 1.7L CDTi (110, 125 or 130 hp), since the test mules of the sedan have all been spotted bearing thin tires that aren’t suited for the 2.0-liter 165 hp diesel.
