Opel South Africa has added a new Astra Sport 1,6T AT variant to its rationalised local range, with the fresh flagship model replacing the six-speed manual version.

Priced at R508 000, the new derivative ships standard with the German brand’s three-year/120 000 km warranty and five-year/90 000 km service plan.

As with the outgoing manual version, the range-topping Astra is powered by a turbocharged 1,6-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine sending 147 kW and 280 N.m to the front wheels. But this version uses a six-speed automatic transmission and sips at a claimed 6,1 L/100 km.

It features Opel’s OPC-inspired exterior styling package (including 18-inch alloys shod in 225/40 R18 rubber) as well as interior items such as alloy sport pedals and a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel. A sunroof is available as an optional extra.

An "advanced" parking system, LED matrix headlamps, LED daytime running lights, cruise control and a touchscreen system (with navigation) also ship standard.
