The 2013 Opel / Vauxhall Cabrio has been spied undergoing testing on the Nürburgring.

Designed to battle the Volkswagen Golf Cabrio, the Astra convertible has familiar styling but features a retractable soft-top and unique sheetmetal behind the A-pillar.

Engine options will likely carryover from the standard model, so expect choices to include four petrol units with 100 hp (74 kW / 101 PS) to 180 hp (132 kW / 182 PS). We can also expect a variety of diesels producing between 95 hp (70 kW / 96 PS) and 130 hp (96 kW / 132 PS).

The 2013 Astra Cabrio will be built in Gliwice, Poland and launched sometime next year.
