New Opel Astra notchback - Adaptive Forward Lighting (AFL)

Adaptive Forward Lighting (AFL)

Just like any star, the Opel Astra needs just the right light. The Astra is available with Adaptive Forward Lighting – the most advanced headlight system in the compact segment.


The movable elements in the sleek bi-xenon headlights automatically adjust themselves to different conditions, ensuring safer and more relaxed driving. Nine different light functions make the best of every situation, improving road illumination by up to 90% versus fixed headlamps - without dazzling other drivers.


AFL greatly enhances visibility through curves and sharp bends, making night driving significantly safer. And much more relaxing.


Park Assist

The Park Assist helps detect obstacles in both front and rear. The distance to the obstacles is indicated acoustically via a pulsing sound and a diagram in the display.


Passive safety

The Opel Astra is not only equipped with state-of-the art active safety systems, but also protects its occupants with exemplary passive safety technologies.


Robust bumpers and highly efficient energy absorption systems deal with minor impacts. The bumper beams are precisely positioned for maximum protection in car to car low speed impacts, helping cut repair bills and leading to excellent insurance classification.


The rigid passenger cell is mainly fabricated from high strength steel and surrounded by optimized deformation zones that protect in a controlled manner. Inside the seat belt pretensioners on the front seats, front, side and curtain airbags, Pedal Release System and active headrests all work together to safeguard you.


And to keep your Opel Astra safe from theft, there is an advanced alarm system available, which meets the most stringent insurance standards.
