2013 Opel Astra OPC Review

After only six months on Australian shores, German wunderkind Opel reckons its all-new Opel Astra OPC is primed to take a commanding slice of the nation’s fiercely competitive hot-hatch market. It’s got its work cut out for it – priced at a bullish $42,990 plus on-road costs, the Astra OPC is already dearer than the coveted Renault Megane RS265 ($42,640), as well as much-loved rivals the Volkswagen Golf GTI ($38,990) and Ford Focus ST ($38,290)...

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...

It may now wear an Opel rather than Holden badge, but the Astra is a worthy adversary for its small-car rivals.

2012 Opel Astra Review

The Opel Astra GTC is a car I lusted after from the time I saw the first 3D renderings of it in 2010. Circumstances prevented me from buying one new, during Opel's blink-and-you'll-miss-it sojourn in the Australian market, but last year I found a great used buy and could not help myself. It is a truly beautiful thing to behold and after 9 months or so none of that allure has worn off...

The looks of this thing is pretty hard to beat on the road, certainly none of the other hot hatches can in my opinion anyway...
