With its advanced passive and active safety equipment and the innovative driver assistance systems, you can enjoy the outstanding driving dynamics of the new Opel Astra GTC with solid reassurance.
The new Opel Astra GTC 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. Various adaptive light functions make the best of every situation, improving road illumination by up to 90% versus fixed headlamps - without dazzling other drivers.
In combination with the Opel Eye camera system AFL+ also features Intelligent Light Ranging (ILR), registering hills and slopes to adjust the range for optimal illumination of the road ahead.
AFL+ greatly enhances visibility through curves and sharp bends, making night driving significantly safer. And much more relaxing.
The standard halogen headlights of the new Opel Astra GTC can be upgraded with an automated high beam control. The High Beam Assist detects oncoming and leading traffic and switches to high beam when the conditions allow.
Opel Eye is your high-tech co-pilot. The new Opel Astra GTC’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 of the Opel Eye system supports three functions.
The Traffic Sign Assistant (TSA) 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. The system also uses the information in the navigation data to ensure a high detection rate.
As of 60 km/h the camera also recognizes if the vehicle unintentionally crosses a traffic line without the driver indicating. The Lane Departure Warning (LDW) signals the deviation acoustically and with a warning light in the revolution counter.
The camera is also used to detect moving lead vehicles and to calculate the distance, which is shown in the display between the instruments. Following Distance Indication (FDI) not only enhances safety, but also helps to avoid tailgating tickets.
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 new Opel Astra GTC is not only equipped with state-of-the art 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 new Opel Astra GTC safe from theft, there is an advanced alarm system available, which meets the most stringent insurance standards.
