Astra GTC MY2013 changes include:

 

The addition of ecoFLEX versions of the well-proven 1.7CDTi 16v (110PS and 130PS) Start/Stop engines – with CO2 emissions of just 109g/km (which equates to 15% BiK tax in 2012-13) and around 10% better fuel economy at 68.9mpg Combined (provisional) gives the GTC a useful BiK tax advantage over its main competitor – the VW Scirocco, as can be seen here:
