|2012 opel astra gtc|
Opel Astra GTC 1.4 Turbo Ecoflex with its 19-inch wheels, the coupe-like lines, wide track - a true sportsman and Gegenteilvon less discreet. He is more in the tradition of an Opel Manta GT or the first series than, say, a cadet GSI. Mention the models with our special car has one thing in common: There is more illusion than reality. Where you under the hood may not have the lush turbo the OPC model, with its 280 hp, but at least it would have to assume their 180 lives, in this case, a simple 1.4-liter turbo, which brings it to 120 hp. About this service would be the Opel GT from what has been previously excited, but had to make do with 90 or even only 60 horses. But today, when the PS, also a kW value - in this case 88 - is presented, is 120 hp more at the bottom of the spectrum.
For the average person often cited driver they are in the compact class still the best choice, but gasoline is not even close to average for an annual mileage of 10,000 kilometers, from which usually pays a diesel. And Otto drives the other hand, not even with his GTC at the weekend on the Nordschleife of the Nürburgring. At least not with a 1.4 turbo EcoFlex.
The small turbo on the highway you can have a lot of fun. It must, however, turn hard. Its maximum 200 Nm of torque to allow no surfing wave and the odd overtaking you must also resist. Does not matter. The most fun on twisty racecourse brings the Astra GTC. Exactly the car a little, waving around the corner it is a pleasure and always gives a great sense of security. The option to make the chassis for sports or touring, you can safely ignore. The seats are Opel-typical, long-distance cruising.
The car is total quiet and comfortable enough for a long trip, finally, Otto N, as a rule only one car and with whom he also went on vacation. He will grieve a little, because it suffers from the overhead bin of confiscated Opel second level. Nominally, it holds 380 liters of luggage, an average value in the compact class. The handling with a false bottom reveals itself not at first sight and makes the loading of bulky objects. Still, the case of beer and grilled food for the weekend can fit. That would be the Opel GT was from that time more difficult.
