2019 will mark 120 years of car manufacturing for Opel and to recognise this anniversary, Opel is launching the ‘120 Years’ special editions.
Passenger car models such as the current Corsa, the Astra, the Crossland X, the Mokka X and the Grandland X right up to the Insignia flagship will be available in the ‘120 Years’ trim, featuring a wide range state-of-the-art technologies, design and comfort features as standard. Order books for the Corsa, the Astra and the Insignia ‘120 Years’ edition models are open now, while the Crossland X, the Mokka X and the Grandland X order books will open in December.
The Opel Astra
“Opel has been democratising mobility for 120 years. In our cars, we make trendsetting technologies and features affordable for all groups of buyers. That is what we stand for! And that is why we are offering the special edition ‘120 Years’ trim level for so many of our models to mark the start of our anniversary,” said Xavier Duchemin, Managing Director Sales, Aftersales & Marketing.
The special edition trim sits directly above the SC trim in most models and, depending on the model, includes assistance systems such as Park Assist or Cruise Control as standard.
Features such as heated seats, heated steering wheel and velour floor mats increase the level of comfort. The ‘120 Years’ models come with stylish alloy wheels, chrome elements, door sills with Opel lettering and of course the ‘120 Years’ badge. Pricing on the special edition Corsa, for example, is already available from €16,650, while the 120 Years anniversary Astra starts at €23,895.
Looking at the Astra in greater detail – the compact Opel comes with assistance systems such as Hill Start Assist, Air Conditioning and Cruise Control as standard in its entry-level version. Fog lamps and Rear Park Assist are added as standard on the ‘120 Years’ variant.
The Opel Crossland X
Heated front seats and the heated steering wheel along with the sight package including rain sensor, automatic headlamps with tunnel detection and automatic dimming rear-view mirror ensure comfortable temperatures and an increased level of safety on cold and wet days.
In addition, the Astra five door and Sports Tourer drivers and occupants can rely on outstanding connectivity and entertainment thanks to the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible R 4.0 IntelliLink infotainment system with seven-inch colour display. The door sills with Opel lettering, 17-inch alloys in five twin-spoke design and the ‘120 Years’ logo immediately identify the Astra as a special edition model.
The ‘120 Years’ Opel Crossland X comes with the same standard features as the Astra. Furthermore, the SUV which was launched last year, features a heated ThermaTec windscreen for a clear view on frosty days, and LED ambient lighting in the centre console and the doors. On the outside, the ‘120 Years’ Crossland X shines with high-gloss black B pillars, a chrome roofline, front and rear silver underride guard look and anthracite-coloured alloys in 4-twin-spoke design. Prices for the ‘120 Years’ Crossland X start at €23,095.
