Opel/Vauxhall designs

posted in Car News Articles |

I passed the latest Vauxhall Astra parked up in a street while out for a stroll the other day (giving the eyes a break from looking at screens). I actually gave it quite a close inspection because I liked the design, the lines and the overall proportions, styling of the car. I haven’t noticed many of them on the road yet, but sometimes it’s when you see the car on the street, rather than say a show stand, that the merits (or de-merits) of a design’s execution really become apparent. It looked good in black.

On a related note, I came across this video from the guy responsible (Vauxhall/Opel’s Vice President of Design, Mark Adams) for the design of the latest Meriva and it’s worth a look. Good explanation on the need for a B-pillar. [if the below doesn't show please try upgrading your Adobe Flash player to the latest verion].
