With accentuated exterior design, new engines, newly tuned chassis and an upgraded interior, the Opel Antara combines sporty off-road flair with high utility value and urban chic for 2011.
The fully re-worked engine line-up consisting of two diesel units and one petrol variant meets Euro 5 emissions standards and offers 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 2.2 CDTI diesel engine comes in two output levels. The 120 kW/163 hp entry level unit has a fuel consumption of 6.3 l/100 km (CO2: 167 g/km), and the 135 kW/184 hp top-of-the-line diesel impresses with fuel consumption of 6.6 l/100 km and CO2 emissions of 175 g/km).
An alternative to the diesel engines, is the 2.4 ECOTEC petrol engine with 123 kW/167 hp and 230 Nm maximum torque is available with front-wheel drive and manual transmission or all-wheel drive coupled with manual or automatic gearbox. Featuring acceleration from zero to 100 km/h in 10.5 seconds, a maximum speed of 190 km/h, fuel consumption of 8.8 l/km and CO2 emissions of 206 g/km (manual front-wheel drive version), it leaves virtually nothing to be desired.
The 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.
The refreshed interior offers new, upscale trim and upholstery, instruments with new graphics, a re-designed center console with extra storage solutions and the elegant leather trim option Light Titanium.
With its attractive looks, active chassis tuning and upscale interior, the Opel Antara is a strong contender in its segment and comes with a base price of €26,780.
