GM announces Astra convertible for 2013

GM has made official that it will released a convertible variant of the Astra in 2013, alongside a city car at the same time. With the VW Golf Cabriolet in its sights, we expect Vauxhall/Opel to ditch the retractable hardtop in favour for a soft-top.

The newcomer will share the same platform as the outgoing Astra and will be produced in Gliwice, Poland.

�The new Convertible will be a great addition to our product lineup,� said Opel/Vauxhall CEO Nick Reilly. �It follows the long-standing tradition of highly emotional and legendary Opel/Vauxhall Cabrios that provided important halo effects on our brand. With its sleek and elegant design, our new Convertible will fully deliver on that same promise.�
