According to the rumourmill, the next generation Opel Astra could potentially replace or join the Cruze as Holden's local small-car offering.

But with the current Astra range already departed after GM's aborted attempt at establishing the Opel brand in Australia, Australian motorists will likely have to wait until late 2015 or early 2016 at the earliest before the Astra nameplate returns to our shores.

In the meantime, GM's German subsidiary is already hard at work on the next generation of Astra, and our spy photographers managed to snap one frame of the car as it darted behind a boom gate.

There's plenty of camouflage to distract the eye, but this test mule's silhouette reveals a shape that is more angular and less organic than the current-gen Astra, as well as door apertures that appear larger.

Expected to be built on GM's D2XX platform, which will also underpin the next-generation Cruze, the new Astra will be powered by a range of three and four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines.

Body styles will also range from three to five doors, with a wagon variant also likely.
