With its advanced passive and active safety equipment and the innovative driver assistance systems, the Astra is one of the safest cars in its class.
Just like any star, the Astra needs just the right light. The Astra is available with Adaptive Forward Lighting – the most advanced headlight system in the compact segment.
The movable elements in the sleek bi-xenon headlights automatically adjust themselves to different conditions, ensuring safer and more relaxed driving. Nine different light functions make the best of every situation, improving road illumination by up to 90% versus fixed headlamps – without dazzling other drivers.
AFL greatly enhances visibility through curves and sharp bends, making night driving significantly safer. And much more relaxing.
Opel Eye is your high-tech co-pilot. Another segment first, Astra’s front camera system is a specialized wide-angle, high-resolution camera that helps you drive safer and avoid speeding tickets.
Mounted behind the interior rear-view mirror, the front camera recognizes speed restriction signs and then displays them in the instrument panel. The Traffic Sign Assistant reads standard sized round speed limit and “no overtaking” signs and also signals the end of the restrictions. It is active from 14 km/h up to 200 km/h (daytime) and 150 km/h (at night) respectively. Unlike navigation systems with stored speed restrictions, the system works in real time so it is always current.
As of 60 km/h the camera also recognizes if the vehicle unintentionally crosses a traffic line without the driver indicating. It then sounds an audible warning and activates a warning light in the revolution counter. This also helps to counter fatigue and temporary loss of concentration.
The Park Pilot helps detect obstacles in both front and rear. The distance to the obstacles is indicated acoustically via a pulsing sound and a diagram in the display.
The Astra is not only equipped with state-of-theart active safety systems, but also protects its occupants with exemplary passive safety technologies.
Robust bumpers and highly efficient energy absorption systems deal with minor impacts. The bumper beams are precisely positioned for maximum protection in car to car low speed impacts, helping cut repair bills and leading to excellent insurance classification.
The rigid passenger cell is mainly fabricated from high strength steel and surrounded by optimized deformation zones that protect in a controlled manner. Inside the seat belt pretensioners on the front seats, front, side and curtain airbags, Pedal Release System and active headrests all work together to safeguard you.
And to keep your Astra safe from theft, there is an advanced alarm system available, which meets the most stringent insurance standards.
