Opel continues to test its next-generation Astra--the same car that will eventually show up as the 2011 Saturn Astra on our shores.

This 2011 Saturn Astra prototype was shot in Austria, as a large fleet of prototypes--and several competing vehicles--descended on the Alps for some altitude and brake testing. In all the commotion of trying to get the entire large test team under way, TheCarConnection.com's spies caught one 2011 Saturn Astra prototype with its door open and its interior completely uncovered.

The new 2011 Saturn Astra's interior follows the direction blazed by Opel's Insignia, and looks more modern, sporty, and purposeful than the current model. The dash is currently a sea of drab black plastic, but it's clear that this is a fairly early, rough representation of the next Astra's cockpit. We expect the panel fits to be much tighter, and the materials to be vastly improved as we get closer to the Astra's production date some time in 2010.--KGP Photography

  1. Just an editing quibble. the Opels "descended" upon the Alps? How, were they helicoptered in? Infelicitous, choice of words. Probably much better in the original Alpish.
