Opel's popular cabriolet is on its way back to showrooms, with a single teaser image released last year evolving into the prototype test-car spied in recent weeks.

The new convertible has yet to be named, but it is known that the Astra-based car is built on the same Delta II platform that underpins others in the range, along with the Holden Cruze and the upcoming Volt.

As a more upscale offering than the regular Astra, the Cabriolet will reportedly feature the Astra OPC's advanced suspension package, with the HiPerStrut sysem and a Watt's link rear axle.

Engine options will likely mirror the Astra hatch, including Opel's new 147kW 1.6 litre turbocharged Ecotec engine. It remains to be seen if a top-shelf OPC model will be offered.

The new model will also do away with the folding hard-top of its Astra TwinTop predecessor, with a lighter and less expensive soft-top to feature in its place.

Watch for the Astra Cabriolet to debut later this year or early in 2013.



Will we see the Astra Cabrio in Australia? While Opel is saying nothing for now, we reckon the odds are good.

The convertible Astra was a strong-seller in its Holden days, and with the car's true parent Opel now on sale in Australia, local buyers could soon find themselves considering this topless German again.

With an official announcement yet to come, we'll just have to wait and see.
