2.2-Litre Engine Drives Astra TwinTop And SRi Models



11th May, 2007

2007 Holden Astra TwinTop - AH series

Holden’s Astra TwinTop retractable hard top convertible and sporty three and five-door SRi models are powered by a responsive 2.2-litre direct injection engine.

The four-cylinder ECOTEC engine produces 110 kW* of peak power @ 5,600 rpm and 210 Nm of peak torque @ 4,000 rpm.

It is the first Astra engine to offer variable high-pressure direct fuel injection, enhancing its efficiency compared with multi-point fuel injection systems.

The TwinTop and SRi three and five-door models hit showrooms back in January 2007 and confirm the AH Astra line-up as one of Australia’s most comprehensive small car ranges.

GM Holden's Small Car Marketing Manager, Teresa Basile, said there was now an Astra to suit almost everybody.

“With four body styles and choices of 1.8 litre petrol, 2.2 litre petrol, 2.0 litre petrol turbo or 1.9-litre turbo diesel engines, Astra covers a very wide range of customer needs and tastes,” she said.

Astra TwinTop

The TwinTop brings retractable hardtop technology to the small convertible market at an accessible price.

Available in either a six-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission, this cutting-edge European import is two cars in one - changing from a sporty coupe to a stylish convertible in just 30 seconds.

The stunning TwinTop has a three-piece retractable hard top allowing the roof to fold tightly, ensuring the rear of the car remains space efficient and in perfect proportion.

A functional and stylish vehicle, it has the ability to seat up to four people and boasts 205 litres of storage space when the roof is open and 440 litres when the roof is closed.

As a secure coupe, the Astra TwinTop offers passengers a quiet interior with suppressed wind noise – a disadvantage often associated with soft top convertibles.
