Astra windshield

Last Updated:

Just to clarify things.
From this picture you can see the new panoramic windshield option in the Astra comes with a sun blocker you can roll down all the way to where a normal roof line would start.
You can see the tracks on top of the door…

So they did think about that “sun in the eyes” problem.

  1. Totally brilliant.

    Windshield replacement cost can’t be any worse than what MB charges for their cars w/ rain sensor… which I heard is over $1000.

  2. As long as you have insurance, the windshield replacement is pretty much whatever your deductable is anyway…

  3. I like it.
    Wish GM would send over the 3 door Antara(Vue) replacement(read it will be the 5 door) and 3 door Astra(again, read it will be the 5 door…. on various other news sites).
    Keep up the great work, Vince. Excellent site, information, pix.

  4. Vince, is this the 3 door(from the other post you had up, the one prior to this, before you knew of the sunshade(?)…) from you other post?
    I had read they will not bring a 3 door here(read it on other news sites), but maybe the sedan and a 5 door(due to crossovers/”wagons” being so “hot” today).

    Can you verify if this is true, or not, or unsure?

    I wish they’d bring all 3 version of Astra here to USA.
    A 3 door might be interesitng, especially with that windshield.

  5. If they make this a sedan and a 5 door( akin to the Malibu Maxx), it might be ok.
    Or, even better, make it look akin to say an Elantra GT or even a Suzuki Reno 5 door; more car- like than wagon/suv/whatever- thing.

    Enough 5 door wagons floating around. need mroe car like 5 doors.
    Maybe even make it like that Mazda RX-8(correct?)….. still have 4(or 5 for the Astra) doors, but have 2 hidden.

    Also, that interior(on last thread on Astra, prior to this one), ok, but that center stack needs work, maybe nicer materials?

    If it looks like a wagon, count me out, for even considering one. Some like ’em, I don’t.
    take care-not offense.

  6. Let me rephrase my last post about wagons: I can tolerate maybe a few versions, like the Rabbit 3 door, or 5 door. Just some remind me of updated 70′[s wagons, and thjat is not for me.

    take care-not offense
