Vauxhall's latest Astra will be unveiled at the 2015 International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt on 15th of September, around 09:00 at Stand D09 in Hall 8.0. Created at the Ellesmere Port plant in Cheshire, the model will be with 200 kg lighter than its predecessors and will also feature interesting engineering solutions: the vehicle will be smaller from the outside, but more spacious from the inside. Nice.

The latest Astra will grant owners with numerous powerplant options, both diesel and petrol units. Buyers can chose among several engine models with power ranging from 100 hp (73 kW) to 200 hp (147 kW). In fact, among the engine units, there is also the latest 1.4-liter 145 hp ECOTEC Direct Injection Turbo with four cylinders. This guy is from the same lineup as the one-liter and three-cylinder engines in Corsa, ADAM and VIVA models. The more the flexibility the more the fun, right?
