The Astra sedan has a 2,685mm wheelbase with 460l of interior volume, which is 90l more than the five-door. With the seats folded, storage increases to 1,010l. 

Opel is offering a wide range of seven engines for the Astra sedan. There are four gasoline engines with between 100hp and 180hp, and three of them are available with Opel's new six-speed automatic that was just revealed for the MerivaMeriva Gen.2Opel Meriva Gen.2Germany, 2010 > present53 versions

Opel has made options available to allow buyers to take the car up market if they want to. These options include Advanced Forward Lighting with bi-xenon headlights, adaptive suspension and SD-card based navigation. Like nearly all modern Opel's, the seats are certifed by the German AGR organization as being healthy for the passengers' back.

Opel


Opel entered the automobile business in 1899, selling Opel-Lutzmann cars, the first of them being the “Patent Motor Car”. Partnership between Opel and Lutzman was terminated in 1901 and Adam Opel’s son initiated a new contract with the French carmaker Darracq that allowed the German company to built Opel-Darracq cars. These cars received their chassis from Darracq and their bodies from Opel.
