Opel Antara – Next Generation Opel Antara from 26,780 euros.

29 Nov 2010

  • With new powertrain range, optimized design and upgraded interior

Rüsselsheim. With three newly developed powertrains, upgraded manual and automatic transmissions, a re-tuned chassis and a new interior designed for comfort, the Antara combines off-road capability with urban chic. Now, thanks to its attractive pricing, the next generation Opel Antara offers excellent value for money. The Antara 2.4 l (123 kW/167 hp) gasoline version with front-wheel drive starts at 26,780 euros in Germany.


This cool crossover meets the most exacting demands in terms of design, driving dynamics, economy and functionality. The enhancements are rounded off by a stylish exterior design and an interior which has been upgraded in terms functionality, look and feel. Together with the front and all-wheel drive options, the Antara offers something for everyone.

The powertrain range includes a newly developed common-rail diesel engine with 2.2-liters displacement and 2.4-liter gasoline engine. The 2.2-liter diesel is available in two output levels (120 kW/163 hp, 135 kW/184 hp). The gasoline version, which has also been upgraded, delivers 123 kW/167 hp. The 163 hp diesel and the gasoline-powered model are available with front or all-wheel drive and with manual or automatic six-speed transmission.


All engines meet Euro 5 emissions standards. Compared with their predecessors, they combine increased agility and driving dynamics with considerably lower fuel consumption and emissions.


Both transmission types are also available for the 184 hp diesel version, while the all-wheel drive system is standard with this engine. To match the new engines, the newly tuned chassis offers an extremely well-balanced combination of dynamic handling and suspension comfort.

The exterior highlights of the updated Antara include a newly designed front grille with the trademark Opel chrome bar, new fog lamps, adapted underride protection, modified rear lights and large-format, 19-inch alloy wheels. The enhanced interior features new paneling and upholstery materials, optimized instrument graphics, a new center console, additional storage space as well as elegant interior lighting. An especially high-grade leather version, called Light Titanium is available as an option.


“The new Antara combines the looks of a sporty off-roader with urban chic. It is practical, functional and equipped with state-of-the-art technology,” says Alain Visser, Vice President Marketing, Sales & Aftersales. “You really notice that it has undergone a major character change. With completely new engines and a newly tuned chassis, the car has become much more dynamic and more comfortable. In short: it offers clear added value in terms of driving pleasure.”
