Opel Astra TwinTop

+ State-of-the-art three-part retractable hardtop
+ From coupé to cabrio at the touch of a button in less than 30 seconds
+ Generous luggage compartment space, innovative "Easy Load" function
+ Adaptive chassis with Continuous Damping Control and bi-xenon curve light

Rüsselsheim. World premiere of Opel's new cabrio-coupé at the IAA: following the successful launches of the sedan, station wagon and GTC, Opel presents its fourth distinctive Astra model. The Astra TwinTop will be unveiled to the public for the first time at the International Automobile Exhibition in Frankfurt (September 17 - 25). The elegant four-seater with a new-generation electro-hydraulic retractable steel roof will be at dealerships in spring 2006. A special highlight of the new Astra TwinTop is the clever kinematics of its innovative three-part roof system, which enable generous trunk space of around 440 liters. In the cabrio configuration, more than 200 liters are still available. A state-of-the-art "Easy Load" function increases practicality: at the touch of a button, the horizontally stacked roof parts in the trunk can be raised, so that cargo is easily accessible. In addition to generous luggage compartment space, the innovative roof technology also enables a dynamic, harmonious design with well-balanced proportions. With a length of almost 4.5 meters, the Astra TwinTop reaches dimensions comparable to mid-size segment cabrios.

"With the Astra TwinTop we are introducing another exciting niche car, while extending our model range in the important compact segment. Four Astra versions and the Zafira represent five different car concepts on one technical basis. That makes us more attractively positioned in this segment than any other competitor", says Hans H. Demant, Vice President Engineering, General Motors Europe, and Managing Director, Adam Opel AG.

Opel Meriva

The Opel Meriva added a new dimension to the minivan segment when it was introduced in May 2003, and has been market leader in Europe since then. The Meriva goes into 2006 with a new design and new engines, plus an extended range of technological features. The new edition of the compact minivan is now available at dealerships, as is the all-new high-performance version, the Meriva OPC with 180 turbo hp. Prices for the spacious and multi-variable five-seater, which has sold more than 500,000 since its debut, start at 14,520 euros in Germany (recommended retail price ex factory including VAT).

The Meriva's new design - with distinctive accents like the Opel logo on the grille's wide chrome crossbar and dynamic design line - also clearly reflects the package of exclusive technology for this segment. Highlights include the unique interior versatility thanks to FlexSpace, adaptive halogen curve and cornering light as well as state-of-the-art mobile telephone installation features, optionally with Bluetooth interface and voice control. With a new 1.3 CDTI, high-tech entry-level diesel and a 1.6-liter engine with fuel-saving TWINPORT technology, additional highly-efficient power units enhance the comparison test winner's range. The interior is upgraded by new upholstery with modern colors, décor trim strips and chrome accents; fabric/leather or all-leather trim is available on request.
