Well, excluding the engines, I think they uped the game with this one. Looks like a lot of improvements are there. Liking the new speedo.

Yes the only thing i like is the new speedo lay out. I do like my navi 900 screen now but it's more refined on the updated astra.

It will be real interesting to know what OS the new HMI is gonna run. I would imagine that they have finally killed off WinCE and gone with something else.

Maybe even an android.

Just hoping it will be pin compatible with the old one so the old one can be swapped out, but knowing vauxhall, it probably wont. :(

I think bumper on facelift is uglier than on current astra. Liking the grill but only with black around griffin/opel logo.
I dont like white trim inside. Does not look good.
But I do like new digital speedo.
All in all I think that current astra before facelift is better looking car overall.

Using carplay or android auto would make the swapover of the satnav kinda pointless, as the layout of these wouldnt change.
I'd rather see the digital dash to be retrofittable, really like the look of that new speedo.

Agreed, unless the new units support Android Auto Wireless.

Would be amazing to have a wireless charging slot in the car, that you just put your phone into, and it would charge, and at the same time it would connect to AA, wirelessly.

I thought that Opel had been tasked with developing a new 1.6 petrol turbo engine for the whole of the PSA group - due out in 2020.

I wonder if this new engine will feature in the Astra?

It should be possible to update the sat nav 900 for a premium or take the old one out. But may still charge £600 for the pleasure. As for the Speedo. I wouldn't bother
