Opel has started the ball rolling at the Paris Motor Show with the unveiling of the concept GTC Paris and the premiere of the new estate version of the Astra, the Sports Tourer.
"We are progressing swiftly with our growth plan. Today we have the best product portfolio ever. And we're just getting started," Opel/Vauxhall CEO Nick Reilly said at the company's press conference at the Opel stand.
The Astra GTC is expected to be very close to the new three-door production model and this will add to the 200,000 units of five-door Astra that Opel has already sold across Europe.
A second highlight of the show is the Astra Sports Tourer, which is a good-looking estate that has load capacity of ip to 1,550 litres.
