Opel's presence in the local market has been rather conservative with its range of existing models in the past, but the German brand is making a comeback with an onslaught of new offerings for South Africa, more of which is set to arrive in 2020.

One of the ever-present and most popular models in the local line-up is still the Astra.

It first made its local debut back in the early 90s and has since spawned five generations, with the current K platform on offer for buyers.

Still a favourite

South Africans can choose between four models in the range with engine sizes ranging from 1.0-litre to 1.6-litre variants. The Adam and Corsa are currently the brand's compact hatchbacks.
