opel astra in Indian Cars Posted June 7, 2008 · Report reply Hi, i too love the good old Opel Astra. The most lovable aspect about the car is its solid build. The way the chunky doors shut says it all. I would say its like a mini Skoda . My uncle owned an Astra 1.6 MPFI, Silver colour. It was great fun to drive it. Now he has replaced it with a Toyota Corolla.
