2008 Holden Astra CDTi Wagon (Diesel)

With desire for diesel cars rising rapidly, GM Holden is working hard to bring more oil burners to the Australian market. We know they are serious too, given the recent announcement that hybrid and diesel variants of the Commodore are only two years away. But if you can't wait that long, Australia's favourite brand has added another model to its growing diesel line-up...

2009 Holden Astra CGI

With the current Holden Astra starting to show its age, European manufacturer Opel (in charge of the project), is currently testing the new-generation Astra before its public debut at next year's Geneva motor show. CarAdvice brought you the first spy photos of the new Astra earlier this year and now we can show you a Computer Generated Image (CGI) produced by our graphic artists...

2007 Holden Astra SRi coupe and hatch

Holden's Astra has been one of the lucky cars in the Holden lineup which has not been replaced with a Korean made matchbox. Unlike the Holden Barina (with its 2 star safety rating) the Holden Astra is actually made in Belgium, by Opel. Hence the Astra SRi three and five-door hatch models are not plaughed by the image and safety concerns of their Korean made counterparts...

2007 Holden Astra Twintop

Holden has released some details on the 2007 Holden Astra Twintop & SRi with some new improvements. The cars are powered by a 2.2-litre direct injection engine with 110kW power @ 5600 rpm and 210Nm torque @ 4000 rpm. Holden says the new improved Astra engine will represent the first time an Astra engine has come with variable high-pressure direct fuel injection technology which will enhance its efficiency compared with multi-point fuel injection systems...

Holden Astra SRi Turbo 2006 AH MY06

So Holden has kept their promise and is bringing out the brand new Astra SRi. The Holden Astra SRi 2006 (AH M06) will be out later this month (June) and from the looks of it, it is still using the same engine as the old TS SRi generating peak power of 147 kilowatts at 5400rpm and peak torque of 262Nm at 4200rpm. The Astra SRi Turbo has always been a car of mystery to me...

Next Generation Holden Astra

This is what the new Astra will probably look like, thankfully its not from Korea! So you can be assured that it won't explode when you reverse into a pole. The New Astra is based on the Vauxhall Antara, which coincidently was made by former chief of design at Vauxhall, Martin Smith. I say former because he has now moved on to other things, more specifically, Ford...
