2006 Opel Antara GTC pictures, and information

With its drive Antara GTC concept (Gran Turismo Crossover), demonstrates just how dynamic and an SÚV (Sport Útility Vehicle) can be. The study has its premiere at the International Show in Frankfurt (IAA) September 15-25, 2005. the characteristic three-door design 4530/1970/1640 mm), Opel a particularly sporty interpretation of an SÚV and its design language in this vehicle format.

With the LED headlamps that run well the fenders, and the brand’s typical in the engine hood, the front of the accentuates Opel’s new design Viewed from the side, is captured by the frameless windows drop right down and to the coupe-like silhouette.

‘The GTC concept vehicle conveys – even when standing It leverages Opel’s current language and reinterprets it for the SÚV genre,’ Bryan Nesbitt, Executive GM Design Europe. ‘Contrary to off-road concepts, the Antara GTC that its true home is on the road than on rough

For Alain Visser, Executive for European Marketing at Adam AG, the Antara GTC is a convincing ambassador of the ‘Anyone who has been lucky to see the Antara GTC has felt instinctively: comes a strong Opel.’ As a sporty SÚV concept, the study symbolizes Opel’s innovative

With a number of optical and details and typical Opel in the interior, the study also out to satisfy demanding practical The tailgate, for example, has a pantographic Thanks to this innovative when it is opened, it swings and to the front so that the person the vehicle is not forced to take a backwards. This provides convenient access to the load

The two rear seats can be folded completely from the rear of the producing a completely flat area. The front seats are on mono-rails and look as if they are With the aid of an EasyEntry system, slide forward at the press of a up to the instrument panel to allow the to climb more easily the rear seats.

Beneath the hood, the Antara GTC a 212 hp twin-turbo version of the 1.9 CDTI engine. The transverse installed power plant produces 400 Nm at 1400 rpm, and, all 1.9 CDTI engines in Opel is equipped wîth a maintenance-free filter (DPF). In combination the six-speed automatic transmission, the is outstanding: computer simulations a top speed of over 210 km/h and an from zero to 100 km/h in 8 seconds.

With the Antara Opel is continuing its series of studies, each of which the new dynamic design language in vehicle classes and reinterprets it for the §egmènt. They include such as the GTC Genève (Geneva Insignia (IAA 2003), (Geneva 2004) and VX Lightning 2003).

Exterior design the self-assured V-shaped radiator to the mighty 20-inch wheels of aluminum, the Opel Antara GTC symbolizes a dynamism that through conventional boundaries. It together the seemingly contradictory patterns of a sporty coupe and a SÚV, and breaches both of at the same time. Typical like the crease on the engine the roof module inspired by the new and the shape of the lights also that the concept vehicle is an member of the Opel family.

On the one the basic design of the body length / width wîth mirrors / height wîth rack, 4530/1970/1640 mm) is characteristic of an vehicle: short overhangs for angles of approach and departure, flanks, powerful side and wheel cutouts, and steeply windows. On the other hand, it has the typical features of a coupe: two and a tailgate, a closed side design without a B-pillar, an sloping roof towards the (achieved above all by the ingenious of the C pillar), and a dynamically rising

‘With this study, we to develop a concept that simply whets your An appetite for new discoveries, for driving, and for out and doing something sporty mountain-biking’, says the director of design, Mark Adams. result was a very attractive that is a decidedly sporty of a SÚV.’

The styling picks up on current design language, has successfully gone into wîth the Speedster, Astra, and Zafira. Other versions been presented wîth like the GTC Genève (consistent in compact form, Geneva Insignia (a new kind of elegance for a sedan, IAA 2003), Trixx flexibility in the shortest form, 2004) and the VX Lightning (pure fun in a roadster, London 2003).

GTC Designer, Kurt Beyer, is pleased wîth the result: new Opel design language plenty of freedom for creativity and the of various lifestyles without the unique identity of the Opel

Beyer exploited this to the full, and combined it wîth an love of detail. The ventilation on the side of the fenders are fitted fine aluminum frames, as are counterparts on the side of the engine and the exhaust openings behind the The body color ‘Everglade features high portions of pigments, that are usually only for bills.

The contrasting bumpers and the bottom body on the side are a demonstration of rugged Beyer took his inspiration for from the soles of sports which are no longer confined to the shoe. Even the profile of the is the work of the design team – and the is repeated on the rubber pads on the

The front and rear underride not only looks as if it has been cut solid aluminum, it actually The same applies to the edge strip for the luggage area. The radiator grill of brushed (which made its debut in form in the Insignia sedan is repeated in the tailgate, which is downwards. Also reminiscent of the are the door handles that flush wîth the body.

The front and rear lights are works of art. Like all the sources in the Antara GTC, consist of light-emitting diodes, have a longer life and response times than lamps. At the same time, the are given much greater in designing.

At the front, the lamp are smoothly integrated into the and at the rear, they form a highlight in the transition from the shoulder to the rear.

One familiar – although the design is new – is to be found on the of the GTC. Along the length of the car the heads of the passengers are two skylights to more light into the – a feature that is as an option wîth the new Zafira. The between them is equipped storage compartments.

Outside, strip somewhat resembles a hairdo, which could become a recurring cue of Opel’s language.

The center strip in one pantographic hinge on which the is fixed. This innovative which was used in a similar in the Insignia and Trixx, produces two simultaneously when the rear is opened: upwards and forwards. It there is no need to take a backwards when opening the and even in tight parking access to the luggage compartment is

The interior

The fascinating contrast a luxurious, classy look and muscular details also in the interior of the Opel Antara Warm tones and the generous use of are caught up in a charming interplay technical materials like fiber (seat back), steel and aluminum (cockpit). the interior is quite clearly in two: Dark-brown dominates the part of the instrument panel and liners, while the rest is beige.

The panoramic roof has been borrowed from the new Zafira and has been further for this study. The two large give the occupants a light and pleasant atmosphere to travel in. tinted glass provides from excessive sunshine. The console, which runs the roof center and extends the whole length of the car interior, additional stowing space.

ingenious storage facility for utensils is the special leather bag can be moved along a rail the front and rear seats. It can be taken along on a shopping or trip.

One eye-catching detail is the console, which extends into the interior. It accommodates not the compact sturdy gear of the Easytronic transmission, but also large round ventilation and the controls for the infotainment system and Side handles to hold on at the of the center console reflect the character of the concept vehicle.

The material mix in the Antara GTC climaxes in the console: The ventilation nozzles stand out from their piano-black finish surrounds, and the lever is ringed by brushed steel. Like the cockpit, the for the infotainment system and the air-condition are in turquoise.

Automatic Clever ideas for the seats and space

With their contours, the four seats as if they have been to measure for the passengers. The front are anchored on mono-rails, giving the of floating about in the interior. the aid of an easy-entry system, they right forward to the instrument at the press of a button to make it for the rear passengers to get on board.

A device ensures that is actually sitting on the seats this operation.

The rear can be automatically folded away, the luggage volume to a generous liters by the VDA standard. The luggage is completely flat up to the front thanks to a moving double the upper half of which is pushed to the front like a over the retracted back Here, too, sisal is as the lining material.

‘With the GTC, we have again that a sporty design not have to exclude a practical Combining the sporty wîth the is a core area of competence for said Frank Leopold, GME Innovation, Show Cars and Packaging, summarizing the study’s concept.

The powertrain:

The Opel SÚV study is by a 156 kW/212 hp twin-turbo version of the 1.9 CDTI ECOTEC common-rail engine. With its hefty at low engine speeds (max. 400 Nm 1400 rpm.), the two-stage concept diesel unit is ideal for this type of

In combination wîth the six-speed transmission, computer simulations statistics that are impressive for the driven Antara GTC concept: A top of over 210 km/h and an acceleration zero to 100 km/h in around 8

The transversally installed four-cylinder features two overhead camshafts, valves per cylinder and a variable blade geometry. The fuel to the cylinders is controlled by a common-rail wîth a pressure of up to 1600

The heart of the innovative twin-turbo of the concept diesel engine is aspiration through two exhaust-driven which unlike ‘biturbo’ operate in series rather in parallel: A smaller, highly turbocharger for the low engine speed a larger turbocharger designed for output to take over as the build up. Thanks to its superior the twin-turbo system can achieve an high specific power without disadvantages in fuel and exhaust emissions. Like all 1.9 CDTI production cars, the GTC concept is equipped wîth the diesel particulate filter (DPF).

The modern chassis of the GTC is also dedicated to agile McPherson struts are used on the axle, and there is a four-link at the rear. The rack-and-pinion power guarantees precise handling.
