We have video of the 2013 Opel / Vauxhall Astra Cabriolet on video ahead of its debut at the Paris Motor Show.
We’re guessing that even though the 2013 Astra Cabriolet (which will arrive as both the Vauxhall and Opel Cabrio) is due to debut at the Paris Motor Show next month, it won’t be in showrooms until the spring – just in time for another miserable summer.
Ahead of that debut, GM Europe are out at the Nurburgring making sure their new soft-top doesn’t wibble wobble too much, resulting in the spy video below.
The Astra Cabriolet (which could well get the abbreviated ‘Astra Cabrio’ badge) is based on the sporty GTC with a butch body kit and a folding soft top.
Under the bonnet of the Astra Cabrio you can expect to see the same engine choices the rest of the Astra range gets, which means a trio of petrols – 1.4, 1.6 and 2.0 litre – plus a couple of diesels – 1.7 and 2.0 litre.
We’ll learn more as the new Astra Cabrio rolls out at Paris.
