  • New Astra Video - Anyone seen?

    Hey Guys,

    Sorry if this is a repost, but has anyone seent he new video of the new astra.

    Quite like the interior and i think that if they get the engine right for the VXR, they could be onto a winner here.

    Check it out:- youtube video

    Not keen on it,the rear boot handle looks crap...the centre console is a carbon coby of the new fiesta and the front looks pants.Guessing that the base model tho so any other will be an improvement on that!

              i quite like the centre console of the insignia. I think its going to be all about the engine this time, thats going to make it or break its reputation. Dont think the looks will count as a huge amount when you think about whats on the market

                I've already said - SIDI engine 260bhp ish - don't expect it to be anywhere near the RS, the VXR will compete with the ST

                Astra

                      Compares fine to the equivalent model of the MK5 when it came out - the 3dr will be very different, iirc their not even guaranteed to call it Astra

                      Astra

                        Regal have mapped this engine in the insignia to 310bhp havn't they? Just a stage 1 map. If thats the engine they use then its going to be easy to get the big power. Big enough for front wheel drive anyway as no way will it be 4WD like some are hoping. Hopefully will have a LSD and decent brakes as standard. Keep the weight and price down and it should be great.

                          If you put that poverty spec new shape next to an Astra H 5 door poverty spec it makes the old car look like a shoe box on wheels.

                            The SIDI is very similar to the TFSI engine in tunability apparently so 300bhp would be easy - probably looking at 350bhp ish without getting oily hands

                            Astra
