Rumor has it that the topless version of the 2010 Vauxhall Astra will be released in 2011. According to Autoexpress, the five-door Astra will be launched in September this year at Frankfurt, then followed by the three-door as well as the Sport Tourer estate in 2010. The Roadster version should be unveiled after the introduction of the MPV version, known as the Zafira.

If the two-seater Astra goes topless, expect it to be a fast one. It should be offered with a number of engine options including a base 150HP 1.4 litre petrol, a 170HP 2.0-litre CDTI turbodiesel, as well as a range topping version that could produce up to 270HP.

The 2010 Vauxhall, or Opel Astra features General Motors’ Delta platform, the same one used for the Chevrolet Cruze and the Chevrolet Volt. After its launch in Frankfurt, the five-foor Astra will go on sale in Europe in the autumn of 2010.
