These latest renderings, among the latest ‘guesses’ at the look of the coming fifth-generation Astra hatch, reveal some predictable styling cues.
The new Astra will take on a more angular profile than the curvaceous current model, although a sweeping tapered roofline still dominates.
Australian buyers will eventually get a close-up look at the new Astra, with Holden confirming last year that it will import not only the current model, but also future versions of the Mazda3 rivalling range - all wearing the lion badge, of course.
In fact, the current Astra, offered here in 2013 as part of GM's year-long bid to make the Opel brand work in Australia, makes its local return this week. (Watch for TMR's review.)
