I've ordered my Astra 12th April, delivery date is in August - Sept. The dealer said that it might be a model my2017, but since the contract has been made for 2016.5 I think I must get all the stuff that are on the contract and for the same price which is on the contract. It is believed that prices for the my2017 will be changed (matrix will be more expensive and 17inch alloys), but I think that mustn't effect my order and the contract. Any info on that? And on the changes my2017 model brings?

Dates for the start of production for MY2017 have just been announced, but no details yet on any changes.

New Astra Hatch - 2017MY Order Banks Open - 17/06/2016
New Astra Sports Tourer - 2017MY Order Banks Open - 24/06/2016

In theory, MY17 production will start after the annual vacation, so that would mean WK33 (WK34 for ST)

Any orders that cannot be built within the deadline for the end of MY2016 production will be automatically changed to MY2017, thus preserving your car's place in the build queue, but these will NOT be price protected by VX, and it would be up to your dealer to decide if any increase/decrease would be passed on. So if a MY17 car costs £500 more (unlikely), that's what you'll be asked to pay, subject to you talking to your dealer.
If your car cannot be built by the deadline, you would thus get your car with any 2017 changes, regardless of when you placed your order.

The last week of production for MY16 is week 29 - W/C 18/07 so your car will be there and thereabouts.

I ordered a top specced Sports Tourer with delivery in July a couple of weeks ago. My dealer convinced me that MY17 would deliver late autumn(oct/nov). If the MY17 is coming out a couple of weeks after I take delivery, it would be a bummer.. Norway wont get OnStar before MY17 and I was also interested in ACC.. What to do?

Onstar could be installed as there are only buttons missing and you would need to activate it with tech2. ACC is another story and will come with a new hardware, so no possible upgrade.

"Color display board computer (over the handlebars) (UDD) only available for orders Navi 900 (Io6) versions Dynamic and Elite; for the Essentia and Enjoy, Navi 900 receives a lower display (UDC);"

I read that as meaning that the full colour display behind the steering wheel will only be on Dynamic & Elite, with the Essentia & Enjoy getting the smaller, non-colour version.

Guessing that 'lower' means lower spec, not physically lower - it's a bit soon to be redesigning the dash.

UK MY17 specs not yet announced.

I'm not sure whether it's just a new idiosyncrasy with the online configurator, or an update in preparation for the MY17 changes. But when go on the online configurator, the new style steering controls are lost as is the colour screen.

Both images are from the online configurator for an Elite Nav 1.6T with the same options added. But from different times of the year:

Q1 2016:


- Unfortunately the colour driver computer display is very obscured in this image, but its there.

Q2 2016:

I know precisely what you mean. I've seen so many slight differences when checking out my particular spec that it makes me wonder exactly what I am going to get. I've seen rear seats with no armrest and rear seats with the 40:20:40 split, the different steering wheel controls, some centre consoles with and without stiched 'leather' to name a few.
I even took issue with Vauxhall Customer Assistance as under the Parking Pack option it stated in the Price & Specification Guide dated 1st April 2016 that it came with Automatic folding door mirrors, which is not the case as they only fold by manually operating the switch in the driver's door. I am not happy that I am not going to get what was advertised but at least Vauxhall have apologised and have been quick to remove the reference to 'Automatic' in the guide (Revised 19th May 2016).
Regarding the colour information display both the 1st April 2016 and the 19th May 2016 Price & Specification Guides clearly indicate that if you have specced the Navi 900 you will get it - see below:

DRIVER INFORMATION
Instrumentation
Driver information display (centrally located in instrument cluster)
• Monochrome display (upgraded to colour when Navi 900 specified) • Displays trip computer data • Total mileage
• Service-due indicator • Oil life • Tyre pressure monitoring system

The thing to remember is that specs differ between different markets, so until Vauxhall release the MY2017 specs we won't know how they will be changed from the current ones.

The new steering wheel looks like the "old" opel... unatractive, ugly and made by a guy with no design experience and possibly with veterinerian degree :D hope they will not fork up the current astra design that much...

huh? the steering wheels shown above are what currently come with the astra. IPC without the colour screen get the 'old' style. Whereas if you have the colour IPC (Nav900 models) you get one with more controls.

The only thing different about the two steering wheels is the buttons, the design is otherwise the same. They're easy to use and they look fine. The steering wheel design is different to that of the J apart from buttons.

hello all :)

I think this link is the one to follow: http://www.opel-niedersachsen.de/mj2005.html#Modelljahr2016_5
Translation by google:

New model

New:
* USB port for PowerFlex Adapter (WNG)
* Load Floor (BF5) without spare-bulge
* interior package (WPG), standard with leather
* 16 inch alloy wheels (Q03)
* Park Pilot back (UD7)
* Design Package for Edition (fog lights, 16Zoll Alloy wheels, Lights package, window trim plates chrome)
* Business upgrade comfort (in addition ParkPilot front) and Business upgrade Executive (window trims chrome, light package, 16Zoll alloy wheels, seat and steering wheel heating) for Business
* 16Zoll steel winter wheels for Sports Tourer
* 16Zoll Alloy winter wheels
* AGR seat for innovation with fabric / morrocana and cloth / morrocana cushion just as EGR execution
* modified board computer layout

elimination
* Watt link for 1.4 Turbo and 1.6 CDTI 136 hp, only standard for HB 5 with 1.6 Turbo and 1.6 BiTurbo
* Morrocana Wings at Dynamic
* Only one folding key

equipment modifications:
* Swing
.........................

I find interesting
* Load Floor (BF5) without spare-bulge - will this mean it will be possible to have dual floor as in Astra J?

I am not shure about these:
* interior package (WPG), standard with leather - will this be the "silent package"?
* AGR seat for innovation with fabric / morrocana and cloth / morrocana cushion just as EGR execution
* modified board computer layout
