Coming to support drivers who cannot afford the luxury of a fully automatic transmission, Opel has added the more affordable option of an automated manual gearbox on several models.
Named Easytronic 3.0, the new automated manual transmission is now offered on the Karl, Adam and Corsa family of small cars as well as the new Astra, which was recently crowned the 2016 European Car of the Year.
