About the Holden Astra

The Holden Astra is regarded as a compact car that was marketed by Holden, the Australian subsidiary of General Motors. Spanning five generations, the original, Australia-only Astra of 1984 must have been a derivative of a typical locally-produced Nissan Pulsar, as was the 1987 Astra. It was succeeded by way of the Holden Nova in 1989-another unique to Australia model line, Holden in 1995 reintroduced the Astra for your personal New Zealand market. I thought this was merely a badge engineering exercise, just as the Opel Astra, from which the third steps generation Holden Astra was based, happen to be sold there since 1993. The year after, 1996, Holden discontinued the Nova line towards the Opel-based Holden Astra. This strategy has been doing place from the time of, with fourth and fifth generations launched in 1998 and 2004 respectively. During August 2009 Holden discontinued the Astra and replaced it making use of Cruze, released two months prior.

In 1998, the Astra was replaced again which includes a German Opel-engineered, Belgium-built version. Termed as a TS Astra, this has been well suited for either a 90-kilowatt (120 hp) 1.8- or even a 2.2-litre petrol engine and was offered in City, CD, CDXi, the SXi and SRi specifications. The SRi was three-door hatchback only, together with the standard Astra was only available by way of a 1.8-litre litre 16-valve engine. The TS Astra was within the car Chevrolet Astra of the classic South American market, although only the latter received the sharper facelift - the European and Australian versions retained the softer curves associated with the original body. Models by way of a 5-stud wheel pattern are reinforced by the ABS option factory-installed.

The TS Astra model change followed that of a typical Opel Astra G range, as an example sedan, hatchback and convertible. However, the Coupé by Bertone was not offered which has a Holden badge. The drivetrain was the same as other cars in along at the Astra lineup, therefore, was not a bona-fide sports car. Just as the Astra A, the Astra B was available if you become a wagon in New Zealand, however it is not Australia. In 2003, a 147-kilowatt (197 hp) 2.0-litre Turbo engine arrived on the scene. The standard Astra only agreed to be available that has a 1.8-litre 16-valve engine, and lived on until 2005 for the reason Holden Astra Classic, alongside the brand new model. The philosophy behind this was for Holden in order to competitive in forex through to the cheaper Viva model was introduced.
