Opel Astra OPC Review
Opel Astra OPC Review
Opel Astra OPC Review

The Opel Astra OPC is anticipated to become the first Opel Performance Centre model to arrive in our showrooms, and if confirmed would be out to give the Volkswagen Scirocco R and Renault Megane RS a stir.

If you’re thinking that OPC must be like the German maker’s equivalent of HSV, then you’re dead right. It’s been building hot Opels since 1997. In fact, Australia was given a taste of the OPC when 17 (yes, 17) of the previous Astra model’s Nurburgring editions were imported and sold by HSV in 2008.

Yet this new generation – introduced in Europe in 2009 and recently facelifted – takes the concept of a hot Opel Astra to the next level. And CarAdvice has tested it in the UK.

Based on the Opel Astra GTC – that’s the coupe version of the popular hatchback – the Opel Astra OPC inherits the GTC’s overall visual balance and composed look, though, you can’t miss the Astra OPC’s sculptured front bumper, which is lower and chunkier than the lower-spec models.

The differences continue with a honeycomb grille, side skirts, a more aggressive rear bumper with a diffuser-like lower section, LED taillights and a set of trapezoidal exhaust pipes. A roof-mounted spoiler and ornate 19-inch wheels finish things off – though our test car was optioned with lighter forged 20-inch items. None of it looks added on either, with the design being cohesive and the changes well integrated.

Inside is a major step-up too. The Opel Astra OPC’s lightweight sports buckets not only look good, but Opel says they also save around 45 per cent in weight, being made of injection-molded fiberglass. They’re padded enough to be comfortable but bolstered enough to hold you in when the OPC’s moving rapidly. Covered in half-leather, they sit 17mm lower in the Astra OPC than in the regular Astra GTC, and there’s optional electrically adjustable bolsters – both for the vertical and the separate base bolsters – making the seat a perfect fit for almost any passenger.

From the excellent driving position, which has plenty of room (unlike the back seats), you are greeted with OPC dials and a leather-wrapped flat-bottomed sports steering wheel that’s 10mm smaller in diameter than those found in regular Astras. Under foot are drilled aluminium pedals, OPC floor mats, doorsills and smart stitching with piano black inserts on the door trims.

The surfaces are premium, with a soft-touch dash and black and silver trim highlighting the centre-console surround. The console itself is loaded with tech controls: heated seats; climate control; centre display with sat-nav; USB and Bluetooth connectivity; plus DAB audio – you know you’re not sitting in a standard Astra.

On the safety front, the Opel Astra OPC has six airbags, but while it’s yet to have been crash tested, the Astra GTC has and it received a five-star Euro NCAP rating.

Switch the Astra OPC on, and there’s a classic hot hatch exhaust note, but it’s particularly strong and bassy. The 206kW 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder is loaded with technology, and has a unique alloy-head compared to the rest of the Astra range to go with its aluminium block and direct fuel injection.

It also has its own specific turbocharger for better response, running 1.5bar of boost. A unique intake and exhaust system, and remapped engine control unit (ECU) make the most of the improvements. The changes have also benefited fuel economy with figures of 8.1 litres per 100km matching that of the Volkswagen Scirocco R and bettering the Renault Megane RS’s 8.2L/100km.

Nail the throttle and there’s an instant roar – the OPC’s engine has a loud induction noise backed up by a classic, sweet turbo whistle. The timbre’s a treat even when you’re off-throttle, burbling on the overrun down hills.

The six-speed manual delivers smooth shifts, and while it’s not the slickest manual gearbox, the ratios are well spaced to make the most of the engine’s push from around 2500rpm. It’s here that the biggest slab of the available 400Nm of torque kicks in, and while there’s a little lag before this, it’s a reasonably smooth delivery. It’s quick too, cracking 100km/h in 5.9 seconds – fractionally faster than the Scirocco R and Megane RS.

The Astra OPC isn’t brutal, but rather progressive, making it comfortable even as a passenger on a winding road.

The electric steering is well weighted, with excellent turn-in to make the most of the high grip levels. It’s not as involving as say, the Megane RS, but it’s rewarding and addictive. With the recalibrated electronic stability program (ESP) and traction control systems barely noticeable when they are called upon, you can still enjoy a punt in the Astra OPC with the electronics still activated.

You can switch the ESP completely off – unlike in the VWs – meaning you can have the OPC screeching tyres but still feeling grippy, playful and predictable in its handling and road holding. The Brembo brakes and great traction combine to make you attack corners faster than you’d ever hoped for in a car with an Astra badge. It’s a massively capable motorcar.

This is because of the hard yards Opel and OPC have put in on the chassis tune that again prove the Astra OPC is more than a dressed up Astra. All Astra GTCs – OPC and otherwise – have a unique ‘HyPerStrut’. This, in simple terms, separates the front suspension’s up and down movement from the steering. This reduces torque steer, and combines with a mechanical LSD to make the OPC’s nose more composed than you’d expect when you’re pushing it. This is one impressive set-up.

There are also three suspension modes – what Opel calls ‘FlexRide’ – in its magnetic damper set-up. The default mode offers an impressive ride, especially for a car riding on 20-inch alloys, with the ZF Sachs dampers soaking up bumps well making for a comfortable ride. Select Sport on the dash, and it stiffens up the suspension and steering to deliver sharper turn in and poise. The ultimate mode is labeled ‘OPC’ and it’s here that the performance Astra is in full attack mode, providing drivers with the precision and sharpness lacking in some of today’s more expensive super sedans.

The ride remains acceptable – perhaps too stiff for some – but the ability and effectiveness of this car will win many over. The three settings make the OPC both livable on a day-to-day basis, but also perfect for the odd track day or mountain road.

On Australian roads, the Astra OPC may well prove too harsh for some tastes, but it’ll take on – and likely succeed – the Renault Megane RS for buyers looking at a quirky alternative.

The Opel Astra OPC is fast, well designed and built, and is a whole lot of fun to push hard down a winding road. It’s sophisticated, loaded with features and serene enough to be liveable on a day-to-day basis.

Opel hasn’t confirmed the OPC for Australian showrooms, but if it does make it here, pricing is likely to be in the $40,000-$45,000 ballpark.

    No Automatic?

    Yes yes yes I know its a hot hatch, its a drivers car, bla bla bla.
    But common? VW, as much as I dislike them, understand that the point of a hot hatch is that it can be driven in city traffic and on weekends you can take it out and have fun with it.Is it too much to ask for an auto? No sale from me Opel.

    • Camaro

      I used to live in Sydney metro, drove my manual accord euro all  day long. I had no problem with it. I think ppl are getting too lazy. 

      • Zaccy16

        Yeah people are definatly getting lazy!

        • JamesB

          A well-sorted manual will not be tiresome. Honda has ever since gotten the recipe right and their stickshifts are a joy to use. But dual-clutch automated gearboxes are just performing better these days.

          • Zaccy16

            Yeah your right, dual clutches are smoother and faster than a manual unfortunately, I still prefer a manual though( even though I own a polo tsi dsg!)

          • dustonearth

             people are just too lazy these days. wanna have a performance car yet without putting the effort in changing gears.
            to sum up, they do not know the joy of driving a performance car. how the behave is like the american airhead – floor the petal, rev up and vroom (yes only on straight lines; no idea how to tackle corners)

    • $29896495

      You really want an auto in a car like this? Don’t you like changing gears or don’t you have all your limbs? (pardon me if you don’t) The issue of drivable or not in normal conditions was covered. I think this type of car no matter who makes it, isn’t for you. You need to step down a level and grab some luxury and an auto.

    • Blair Waldorf

       I live in the inner city and drive in stop start traffic almost always, yet i also drive a manual. It’s really not that hard, and 95% of new manual cars have a hill holder so hill starts are easier than ever. An auto hot hatch is the stupidest idea ever.

      • Mr Irony

        And none of this sissy synchromesh either. Nothing is as enjoyable as double-declutching a manual down though the gears. Blair would have to agree.

  • Xzon

    It looks pretty ugly

    • http://twitter.com/SamMoss8191 Sam Moss

      I think it looks beautiful! 

  • maattttttt

    haha it looks like a slightly melted Hyundai

  • Chevrons

    Damion, I note some reviews complaining about the rear and over-the-shoulder vision. Did you happen to notice this, any difference with the Megane RS?

    • Damion Smy

      Chevrons, 
      The Astra’s rear vision isn’t great: have a look at that sloping roofline and the small rear window. The rear head restraints and that window limit vision, and the Megane RS is perhaps marginally better. One thing that’s noticeable in the Megane RS is the angle of the screen, but it’s still a close call between the two.  

      • Chevrons

        Thanks, Damion.

  • Maz

    1.5bar boost!? That’s a shedload of boost for a factory car.

  • Exar Kun

    Looks pretty awesome to me.  It’s fantastic that we’ve got the RSM, Scirocco, Focus ST and hopefully this all in the market.  A hot hatch for everybody’s tastes. 

  • tiddy

    No where near as good as a Veloster turbo, it wouldnt handle as well, is not as well made & the quality is bound to be a least a generation behind the Veloster turbo AND it looks like a pig compared to the Veloster…..or at least thats what our Veloster turbo owning contributor will say….Nice looking car, & nice interior & just as important, more choice

    • Camaro

      I assume that you are a Korean girl. Imo I can’t see why anyone calls veloster is good looking car. first time u look at it, it’s ok, kinda attractive but because it’s weird design rather than beauty. then more u look at, more u wonder why anyone bought this car. I admit that different person is different idea of beauty but if u think veloster is good, then look at it again and again. Go to watch motortrend review of it. It’s maybe overrated by Caradvice.

      • tiddy

        Dear dear dear Camaro….you obviously didnt read my post either in full or properly…it’s called sarcasm, read it again

        • Camaro

          yeah my bad.

        • Zaccy16

          My bad too! i thought you seriously prefered the veloster!

          • horsie

            the Veloster turbo is 10 K cheaper. 

          • $29896495

            Horsie – Cheaper doesn’t make it better when the cheaper car is – well, ugly. It’s just cheap! There is nothing about a CHEAP Veloster which is in the least bit desirable. It’s a mess to look at. 

          • TreVoR

            So is a Toyota Camry

          • Zaccy16

            it would be a $10,000 well spent for a OPC!

    • JooberJCW

      Yeah where is that F1orce fanboy…

      • Force-15

        Hit with the banhammer one would hope.

      • F1orce

        Yeah I’m here?

        No one in their right mind would pay pretty much 50k for an Astra

        Plus this car will exhibit significant amount of turbo lag, and the engine is simply not as good as Hyundai’s diverse range of class leading, high tech engines.

        This thing looks ugly, but at the same time it looks bland. Look at the integrated exhaust tips, they don’t look good at all.

        The interior is simply inferior to the Veloster’s high quality, ergonomic & innovative interior..

        When the Hyundai Genesis Coupe arrives, say good bye to all the so called ‘hot hatches’.. Unless they significantly lower their price to Corolla level, they will not be able to compete with the Genesis 2.0t, 3.8L & 5.0L R-spec

        • Legnab

          I have say the opel will blow the bloated veloshi off the road , lame engines and very lame handling does not put amongst the euro hot hatches .

          Nice try for a soft sports cruiser .

          • F1orce

            Yeah Euros need more displacement, 22psi of boost and an extra $10,000 and a bunch of compromises to beat a Hyundai.

            Well done.

          • Phil

             Actually the 2.0 265HP Megane Trophy thrashed the 306HP 3.8 Genesis Coupe around the Nurburgring by 21 seconds.
            It did that with almost half the displacement, no where near as much boost as you claim and for about the same price.

          • F1orce

            @ Phil

            Yeah no doubts about the Megane.

            But since 2010 the Genesis 3.8L V6 engine produces 345HP or 257kW

            Which is damn good considering how the Ford Ecofail Twin-Turbo 3.5L V6 makes only a mere 20HP over the Genesis Naturally Aspirated V6

          • Zaccy16

            Exactly Phil! the Hyundai could have twice the power and it would not be able to match the handling of the megane rs265

          • Phil

            So? Why do you always bring such irelevant engines into the topic?
            Regardless, that Ford engine is still producing more power from a smaller engine than this newly updated Hyundai you feel you must rave on about.

        • $29896495

          People have been buying 45 – 50 K Astras for years – Hopefully it will be less. SRI Turbo.

          As for Genesis and Veloster, both were hit with the UGLY stick. The former strange rear quarter windows and an overly ornate nose and a collection of creases down the side which are just to much. The latter doesn’t know what it wants to be, a great gaping maw of a grill, like some deep sea fish trying to collect plankton, and another unfortunate collection of lines and shapes colliding together in its panels. A ridiculously flat roof and what’s with those doors. 

          • F1orce

            Yeah I truly feel sorry for the people who would pay that much money on such a car.

            Ugly stick? I don’t think so, as the Veloster has been a success and a key reason is due to its design and appeal.. But also for good value and uniqueness.

            The Genesis is an impressive car, it looks good, sporty and fresh design. In USA & Canada it has been a success.

            The point of my original post was that when the Genesis comes out at a similar price to the European ‘hot hatches’ it will truly kill them, as the Genesis is a true sports car, it’s Rear Wheel Drive, powerful, coupe and comes with some of the best engines.. 2.0t, 3.8L V6 & a 5.0L V8..

            The Europeans will be forced to significantly lower the prices of their hot hatches. As the Genesis is a car that rivals 5 series at Golf-R price.

            The Germans are scared of Hyundai..

          • Celia

            Do you get paid to write this crud?  Surely you must get paid?

            Every article ….. the Japanese or European car is ugly, the Hyundai/Kia is beautiful.  The Japanese or Euro car is unreliable, the Korean car is perfect.

            While there might be one or two cars in the Hyundai/Kia range that I would be willing to drive, there is not one car that I covet.  

            Good value maybe, aspirational – never!

          • Zaccy16

            Great Point Celia! hyundais and kias are good value but no one in the right mind would say ‘i really want a hyundai or kia!’

          • Phil

            In August, the best selling Hyundai in Germany was ranked 41th and they sold 1600. By comparison, 18,111 Golfs were sold that month. Why would Germans be scared?

            The Germans haven’t lowered any prices so far. Genesis has been on sale in the USA for many years – you say it rivals the 5 series, yet BMW has not lowered the price of the 5 series whose price remains at a starting point twice as high.
            Also the Genesis doesn’t have a Golf R price. Golf R is 33K in the USA, but it seems that selling Genesis’ is such a struggle that Hyundai is trying to flog them at $24K or about the same USA price as a standard 2.0 diesel Golf.

          • F1orce

            @ Phil

            German sales numbers are irrelevant as the German market is obviously dominated by their own brands.

            Look at UK numbers if you want a more appropriate comparison.

            Yeah there are 2 Genesis on sale in USA & Canada and they are Genesis sedan and Genesis coupe.

            The sedan rivals the 5 series sedan at 3 series price or higher depending on trim.

            The Coupe is priced low, as it comes with a simple 2.0t motor for the base engine.

            Volkswagen sold a whooping 382 Golf R last month, pretty much at the bottom of the segment.

            The Genesis is classified as a mid-size luxury car and the Genesis sold 2262 last month in USA, and it was down 30.5% from August 2011

            So you can see that the Genesis does pull significant volume..

            Here’s a more interesting figure, the Hyundai EQUUS which rivals 7 Series & S-Class sold 296 last month in USA. The BMW 7 Series sold only 339.

            Yeah I think the Germans are scared, more so then the Japanese.

          • $29896495

            I think I should point out that the Genesis is about to be replaced as well. It’s replacement has already been sown in some motor shows. Personally I had high hopes for the Genesis when it first came out, but the front, the rear quarter windows and what it actually did on the road, according to OS road tests, left me disappointed. All being well, the new one will be better. But realistically, it’s not in the same class as the cars you are comparing it to. Neither is the Veloster (Who knows where that belongs). But there room in this world for people with bad taste and miss-informed negative attitudes, makes life interesting. So I hope your excel keeps going F1

          • Sdfgsdfg

             WTF F1,

            Your telling me German figures are irrelevant, then you tell me to look at the UK figures AND THEN you randomly provide USA figures? So basically your spinning you way around the world untill you find the figures that suit you? Why not say the USA market is irrelevant because the USA market is dominated by domestic brands?
            German car sales have been consistent in the USA over the last decade – except for VW & Audi whom has been increasing sales.

            You also claimed that the Germans “will be forced to significantly lower the prices”……and in response you simply quote random sales figures? Are you aware the Germans have never made any significant price reductions (except maybe for VW)? Why not try to provide us with some price reductions that actually back up your claim instead of useless Hyundai sales figures?

            German cars have NEVER sold well in the USA and neither have hatchbacks of any kind. That said, the Luxury sector is dominated by the Germans as it has been the case for the last few decades with the Asian brands taking up the slack from the dying USA brands like Lincoln and Cadillac.

          • Legnab

            If i was hyundai i would be worried about US sales, their trend is downward this year .

            In august  VW up  62% , HONDA up 58% , TOYOTA up 47% and HUNDI up 0.567% on august 2011.

            VW went from 314 passats in august 2011 to 10,090 ,  thats the bland new model which the yanks seem to love , over the old .

          • Garrywhopper

            Bland new model, spot on

    • Blair Waldorf

      HAHAHAH! 

    • Zaccy16

      How can you like the veloster? every time i see it i won’t to vomit! its only got one thing better than this and it is price but everything else about it is worse than the astra, the hyundai would not be able to compare on the straights all around corners

      • Mr Irony

        Have you asked for medication? These things can be treated you know.

  • JooberJCW

    Caradvice, you might want to change the price right on top of the article, the 25-36k price is deceiving for those who dont take notice of the last paragraph of expected price

  • sam123

    This car makes veloster look like a wanna be.   IMHO this is the best looking Astra yet.  Nice work.

  • gt86.com.au

    Looks great and drivers great according to the review. priced competetively :) its nice to be different!

  • http://www.caradvice.com.au Jez Spinks

    Yes, a little bug with the pricing there, JooberJCW, which Opel also noticed. Apologies for that, and it’s all fixed now. And let’s hope it comes to Australia (we’re prepared to put some money on it) and for a good price… you can never have enough hot-hatch choices in our view.

    • JooberJCW

      Here’s hoping too, I’ve seen 2 GTC’s on the road already and looking very good, no doubt this one is going to look great in the flesh too.

      • Zaccy16

        Yeah they look great! went to the new opel dealership in geelong and had a look, they look fantastic in the flesh too, the normal astra and insignia look good but the corsa looks dated inside and out and is too over priced

    • Zaccy16

      Yeah more hot hatches the better!

  • nurb608

    Love it! Will be looking at getting this if it comes in at that price.

    You sure there were only 17 nurburgrings brought in though, thought it was 20. The normal vxr was also an OPC.

  • Zaccy16

    The hot hatch/coupe market is getting very congested with lots of good choices out there! eg. golf r/sirocco r, rs265 this and new focus st

    • Legnab

      Yes, but they will all get a slice of the cake , everyone cant wait to dump their old tech crummers and falcoons and get into the the fastest growing market , small hot hatches are where its at , pity those trying to trade a ss or xr6 .

      • Captain Nemo®™

        More likely break down prone Veedud Rolfs will be traded rather that a SS or XR6
        People get sick of the clunk-o-rama DSG failures.

      • Mr Irony

        Like who? I don’t want to drive a sardine can.

        • Legnab

          Plenty of room , not so good for fat bogans .

          • Legnab

            VW good, crummer, falcoon bad, bogan, they are all the words I know

          • Legnab

            GEE a faker any bogan fool can do that , take off your cloke holden feral .

  • twincharger

    Wow the interior,the exterior styling,brembo brakes.Would be in front of the line if i was in the market for a hot hatch.

  • Hung Low

    If priced under $40k, this is a very competitive package.

    • twincharger

      Hung Low it just looks a lot smarter than a Vw Golf,which sells it pants off.

    • Legnab

      Lets hope they have upped their reliability record as the last efforts were dismal , looks dated , as it is 6 years old .

      • $29896495

        What’s 6 years old? The Astra is brand new and the Golf is about to be replaced? (With a car that looks very much like a Golf as a matter of fact, so nice and inoffensive)

        Opel are doing a “hand in your car if you aren’t happy” program in Europe now so maybe they have.

        • Legnab

          No, it was released 6 years ago , a new astra is 12 months away , we are getting the  old car , hand it back , might be a lot of that with their reliability history .

          • $29896495

            who knows I’ve owned an Astra SRI, the only problem was with the Holden service.

            As for age you must be in a time warp, this version only just came out. Check your facts.

          • twincharger

            How do you explain a 6 year old design being superior to your rolf in looks.

          • $29896495

            I know you are just looking to get a rise out of people. Other wise you would tell how you come by 6 years. All you have to do is check the web sites for the release. In fact they are still releasing models for the NEW shape hence the OPC and if you watch the German motoring program Drive It! which is bang up to date you would realize that they are testing the Astra now as a new release. But if you mean the Golf, well we all know that will be replaced this month. Good luck with the Time distortion. Try catching the next worm hole. 

      • Cheezel

        It’s 3 year old you idiot!

  • Sumpguard

    I love the look of this car. Not sure why some think it’s ugly but each to their own. It is unique and sporty looking imo.

  • JamesB

    The styling of this car coupled with the Focus ST’s mechanicals would have made an unbeatable hot hatch.

  • Crownleyian

    “It’s quick too, cracking 100km/h in 5.9 seconds – fractionally faster than the Scirocco R and Megane RS.”
    That’s only on paper the Megane RS 265 is quicker in the “real world” checkout EVO Mag’s drag between the RS265 and the OPC.
    Great car thou the closet thing to the Megane RS 265 in looks and performance.

  • Wile E Coyote

    All these hot hatches are starting to look the same

  • Dominique Vøn Hütch

    Cracking performance and interior – hopefully we get it, cause it’ll shake the segment up.  The new RS265 vs this Opel will be a good comparo, both beat the Scrirocco for performance.

  • Jr

    Why are people still comparing these cars with the mk6 VWs?  The mk6 is actually a 4 year old model.  4 YEARS OLD!!!!! 
    Ok, if I use the audi S3 as at template for the up and coming turbo charged mk7 vw’s………then I would expect them to simply BLOW AWAY the competition. 
    And to F1……….what a comedian.    Those stupid 3.8′s and V8′s won’t even survive another 5 years in the maintstream market.  Waste of time and petrol.

    • Legnab

      Agreed the astra looks so old has a daewoo looking front , certainly is down market on the looks of the sirocco/golf, megane and focus gang .

      • JamesB

        There’s no hint of Daewoo; you just might be suffering from that syndrome.

  • Alec

    lets hope we have the hand back like germany will have, here in Aus .

    like the renault back on it, but the front has already dated!

  • Trev

    also, after hearing so many horror stories from holden / opel owners ( astra / vectra ) id run a mile from this thing

    • Popper

      Yeah. I’ve heard plenty of horror stories, of various kinds, all round, so I’d run a mile from: Ford/Holden/Audi/VW/BMW/VW/Hyundai/Toyota/VW/Renault/Peugeot/Mercedes, etc., etc.

        Popper whats left to drive then , maybe a fiat .

        • Popper

          Yes, that’s my point, by reductio ad absurdum. For the most part I find concerns about reliability to be over-the-top, alarmist. I’m more concerned about excessive costs of purchase and excessive costs of ownership. These seem to be real concerns.

          As for me, I try to buy vehicles that handle well, are comfortable, drive smoothly, and at least don’t appear to have been thrown hastily and scornfully together. For a fact, in my experience of car shopping, some cars are really quite offensive to the customer, or at least in certain respects should give rise to offense, or so it seems to me.

          Here in Perth I have had a quick look (not a test drive yet) of the new Opels. I find that I really do want to like them. I did find some aspects of the cabin a little disappointing, a little “tacky”. My suspicion is that ultimately they are pretty decent cars—but at a slightly lower price.

            Yeah i went and had a look at the dealer in geelong and thought the same thing, the astra and insignias interior was nice but had some tacky parts but the corsa was all tacky, if the astra was 2-3 thousand cheaper, corsa 4 thousand cheaper and insignia 3 thousand less

  • Luke Brinsmead

    I like the appearance, just hope they’ve now got the torque steer under control.

    I think you need to check the definition of the word “rival”. If you are talking about a car rivalling another without mentioning specific attributes then you need to look at every aspect, including build quality, materials, drive train, handling, ride, etc, etc. You can’t just look at a single number like horsepower and decide that 2 cars that are worlds apart in every other aspect are rivals based on the fact they have similar horsepower.
