That's a bad downgrade I'd say :(

USB 2.1 looks a nice upgrade. Not sure what the two tone tailgate cover is though?

And the cost savings and downgrading begins... Or continues the tradition of MY16.5 changes.

Only upgrades seems to be the new exterior colour options and the USB 2.1 socket (but which means also the removal of aux-in).

It's yet unknown, how this will affect Opel models, colours will of course be the same, but will the changes mean poorer seats etc.

It should ;) I think Opel wants to separate the lines more, thats why they are cost cutting the lesser lines to make Innovation line more exclusive :)

I also think that Opel might want to start making profit, since the Astra is one of the cheapest car in its class and even cheaper then KIA CEED (26150eur) and at the same price level as Toyota Auris hybrid (full spec Astra is 25095eur, while full spec Auris hybrid is 25200eur)

I got a sneaky feeling that the new lava red is the same colour as the Astra brochure sound nice and dark. Couple of dealership or unsure of auto android update so I'm gonna wait a fews months until they know exactly what they doing. Be interesting to see the new red

I wouldn't hold your breath... most likely the same colour with a new name, as usual.

Hi

That would be annoying as that is the colour I would have preferred but like SwissTJ says its probably the same as Power Red.

Cheers
