    Some very nice lines there, but that C-pillar hurts my feelings.

    The blacked-out C-pillar and beltline shape remind me of the one on the Nissan Murano, except in the case of the Astra, the quarter window is part of the door.


    Overall, the new Astra looks nice.

    Nice!

    When are the wagon and GTC being shown?
    Will there be an Opel-badged sedan?

    I think I like it. It's very 'out there' for an Astra. Certainly not the normal vanilla of the past and it points to something wild for the GTC. It's a combination of smooth curves and hard angles that again I think works.

    The grille/headlights remind me of a previous gen Astra. Very blunt.

    If it has to be one. Be the Astra.

    One detail of the Opel that is minor but I wish they'd change is the indicator continuing to be located on the front guard. Put it in the mirror. So much cleaner.

    I think you'll find both...

    Possibly. At least we can now see why the current Cruze face is 6 of one 1/2 dozen of the other. I knew it was a lead in to a new design but hadn't seen it until now (note the little winglets under the fog lights).
