Spy Video: Next-Generation Astra Caught at Nürburgring

The folks at WorldCarFans.com have some impressive video of the next-generation Opel Astra zooming around the world-famous Nürburgring track in Germany. Opel Astra is expected to make its debut at the Geneva Auto Show with the Saturn version unveiled shortly thereafter as a 2010 or 2011 model.

Testing for the next generation Opel Astra is well under way and we have the video to prove it. The footage above shows a testing prototype burning rubber on the Nurburgring circuit although you will have to excuse the irritating disguise. The five-door prototype caught shows the model’s sloping roof line plus the trapezoidal-shaped c-post resulting in a somewhat sleeker and more elegant appearance. The front fascia is to receive a complete overhaul with the grille looking similar to that of the Insignia whereas the rest appears to take more unique appearance. The rear will get a new huge bumper and redesigned taillights.

As noted in GM's viability plan presented on February 17, 2009, GM announced it would review the potential spin-off or sale of Saturn and if those options did not prove viable Saturn's operations would be wound down over time. Over approximately the past 60 days, a sub-committee of Saturn retailers has been studying the feasibility of the sale or spin-off options, and has identified some parties that are potentially interested in a purchase or spin-off of Saturn. We are advised that one of the interested parties is Black Oak Partners. We are not at liberty to discuss any other interested party. With respect to what the eventual outcome concerning Saturn might be with Black Oak or any other interested party, it is simply premature at this time to speculate on what any eventual outcome may be.
