Besides the OPC version we told you about some time ago, Opel is also working on the Caravan configuration of the new Astra, a model that is likely to see daylight sometime this year, probably in the last months of 2010.

There are no details for the time being, but here are some new spyshots that could give us a glimpse into how the future model will look like.

The rear side of the car, which is covered by camouflage in these pictures, is the part that will bring the biggest changes, with the tailgate aperture to be smaller than the one on the Insignia wagon. However, the interior and the engine options are expected to be similar to the ones on the hatchback.

The new Astra range includes both gasoline and diesel units, with the entry-level equipped with a 1.4-liter naturally-aspirated configuration. A 1.6-liter Turbo powerplant developing 180 horsepower is also available.

Diesels are also included in the lineup, with the 1.3-, 1.7- and 2.0-liter turbocharged powerplants developing a maximum output of 95 to 160 horsepower. Additionally, Opel might also launch an ecoFLEX configuration in the near future.

The Astra Caravan shown here will be sold as both Opel and Vauxhall, with first units to be delivered to consumers in the first months of 2011.
