In a video with previous generations of the Kadett and Astra in the background, Karl-Thomas Neumann, CEO of Opel, confirmed that he would take the covers off the next-gen Astra at the 2015 Frankfurt auto show in September.

Neumann says that the next Astra "will be a completely new car". The engineering team behind the new Astra has reportedly concentrated on one key goal: efficiency.

According to Neumann, the new car will be "smaller outside, but bigger and [significantly] roomier inside". In addition to this, the Astra will be "significantly lighter" and "powered by state of the art engines of the newest generation, and only state of the art engines".

The new Astra will also, at least in Europe, be offered with GM's OnStar remote assistance and security subscription service.

Hopefully it'll look like the mock-up pictures, the blue 3 door version is a good looking car. Also, great to see you'll be able to buy performance versions that don't look like halfords specials. Take note Honda

impressed, that's a handsome looking car and the list of kit is quite impressive.

As long as the engines match the efficiency of its rivals (the current petrols lag quite far behind!) then Vauxhall will be on to a winner with this one.

Some of the highlights include a new 1.4-litre direct injection turbo that will generate 145 horsepower and will also allegedly be supremely fuel efficient. The all-aluminium block is as least 22 pounds lighter than its steel counterpart, adding to the Astra's mission to shed the extra bulk.
