In a bid to take advantage of the increasingly popular two-tone paintwork trend, Opel has revealed a trio of special-edition models, each with various elements (including the roof) finished in black.
This is the first Astra to be offered in two-tone paintwork, with the roof, side-mirrors and alloys all finished in black. In this special-edition form, the compact hatchback features an Onyx black roof and side-mirrors, with its 17-inch light alloy wheels in a five-spoke design also in painted black.
The Mokka X comes in for a similar treatment, gaining a high-gloss black roof and side-mirrors, with its 18-inch ten-spoke wheels finished in the same shade.
Lastly, the Corsa features the same colour scheme, running on 16-inch light alloy wheels in a four double-spoke design. In addition, this light hatchback model gains alloy sport pedals, chrome exhaust tailpipe and dark tinted, heat-absorbing glazing in the rear passenger compartment.
No word yet on whether these special editions are destined for local shores...
