The Opel Antara 2011 comes with accentuated exterior design, new engines, newly tuned chassis and an upgraded interior.
The fully re-worked engine line-up for the Opel Antara 2011 consisting of two diesel units and one gasoline variant meets Euro 5 emissions standards and guarantees improved driving performance with significantly reduced consumption and emissions. The two available transmissions – a six-speed manual and an automatic – have also been completely newly developed.
The Opel Antara’s electronically controlled all-wheel drive system combines the advantages of a front-wheel drive – such as low fuel consumption – with the traction benefits of an all-wheel drive. While the engine normally powers the front wheels, prevailing driving conditions are continuously monitored by the control electronics.
To match its lively engines, the updated Opel Antara now features a completely newly tuned chassis that combines driving fun and agility with high travelling comfort. The speed-dependent power steering has also been enhanced and now offers even more direct road contact.
Refinements to the chassis and active safety include improvements to the ABS system and the standard fitting of Hill Start Assist (HSA) which prevents roll-back when driving away on grades. Depending on model variant and equipment, distinctive alloy wheels in 17, 18 or 19 inch format contribute to refined handling and the eye-catching looks of the sporty crossover.
The new Opel Antara’s accentuated exterior design sports an updated front grille with chrome bezel, characteristic brand chrome cross bar and a bold logo. The chic crossover also boasts new fog lights, rear lights with new graphics and a distinctive underride protection panel in front and rear.
With its attractive looks, state-of-the-art powertrain line-up, active chassis tuning and upscale interior, the Opel Antara is a strong contender in its segment. The sporty crossover also offers excellent value for money: the 123 kW/167 hp 2.4 ECOTEC gasoline unit in the Selection version with front-wheel drive is a very affordable entry level into the Antara model line for a base price of 26,780 euros.
