Vauxhall has released official pictures of their new 3 door production ready Astra.
The official pictures show that Vauxhall has stuck with the styling first seen at the 2010 Paris motor, so features such as the swept back LED lights, new front grille and flared wheelarches all stay.
The rear of the new Astra looks like a cross between a Volkswagen Scirocco and a Mazda 3. The roof slopes down the same way as the Scirocco, while the rear light clusters which sit above the new chunky two toned rear bumper look similar to the ones found on the Mazda 3. Apart from some similar features to that of the Scirocco and Mazda 3 and even without the 21 inch alloy wheels seen on one of the earlier concept models, the new Astra will definitely be stiff competition for such rivals as the Renault Magane coupe and the new Ford Focus.
Vauxhall has already said the new Astra GTC will be the best in its class for handling and they say this will be down to Vauxhalls limited slip differential system. Although no official word on engines from Vauxhall as yet, but expect a selection of petrol and diesel engines for the new Astra GTC range. The Vauxhall Astra GTC range will produce at least one maybe two hot hatches, an Astra GSi and an Astra VXR. Suggestions say that the new VXR will be powered by a 2.0 litre turbo charged engine that could produce 300bhp, but full details of the engine range wont be released until sales begin in June 2011. Although pictures of the production GTC have been released the Astra GTC will not make its debut until the Frankfurt Motor show in September 2011 which is just before the first customers receive delivery of their new Astras.
