Why do you persit in posting very large file size pictures in every thread you go into? Freaking idiot.

Language, my friend, language!

EDIT: Given that you posted late on friday night (european time), i'll give you the benefit of having-been-completely-drunk...

I don't understand what you are talking about but here's a walrus.



I don't think you should judge legroom on that photo, the seat is pulled back too much for normal sized people.

Will this model be released in NA as th Saturn Astra at the same time to replace the current one, even though it's only been here a couple of years? I hope so. The current one wasn't good enough, or cheap enough. They could have improved either aspect and it would have been a much more attractive option..

They look OK from the outside - they loose on driving dynamics and I prefer the power delivery of the FOCUS. The Golf is way better put together but, in my opinion, too expensive. Everything else is not up to the task at the moment.

For all those complaining about the apparent lack of rear legroom, how do you know the front seats weren't jacked really far back. I won't say anything until i get the front seats in comfortable driving position then jump in the back seat for comparison.

And its a good looking car. Still better looking than any current hatch in the US

If there are anyone out there STILL on a 56k, the following post will make you choke and die, so don't be on 56k, k?

And here we have official pictures of the interior




These shots make my Astra sad :(
But priced right, I'll be happy :)

More shots of the interior and better shots on the exterior than on page 1 can be found on the Autoblogs

Zzzzz...:sleeping:

Ups! Sorry, I felt asleep looking at the pictures. Boring dull and uninspired. The current gent Astra looks much beter (IMHO).

Nice upgrade with the interior though. But the button layout could have been better (too many buttons, all in the same place).

The centre console needs more buttons.

It's got three/two un-allocated buttons just above the seek-buttons :)
Yeah the C-pillar is a bit massive. Just wait for the GTC. It'll hide galaxies.
