The Opel Astra GTC has a 1.4litre VVT Turbo Petrol-engine that may be selected to be run via a sixspeed manual or sixspeed automatic transmission. This little hatch feels fast, and when underway the vehicle covers the earth quite smartly. A conclusion of an allout attack on the 0-100 km/h dashboard could be sealed in 9.9 seconds for the sixspeed manual Astra GTC.
