Our spy photographers have captured the first photos of the Opel Astra sedan testing.
Opel has been planning a new version of the Astra for some time now, and the first photos of this new variant have just come out. The Astra sedan has been spotted by the CarBuzz photography crew and it will run on the same engines and transmissions as the rest of the Astra lineup. The Astra sedan seen here is wearing some camouflage on the rear, giving the spied sedan a bit of a diaper-look.
The front-end retains the hatchback version's styling while the rear, though covered, strikes a bit of a resemblance to the German company's Insignia model. The 2013 Opel Astra sedan will be launched in Europe and Opel hopes the new version of the brand will boost its recent slump in sales.
