SAFETY.

No wonder the Astra and the Insignia both got the top ratings in the Euro NCAP safety test. Our vehicles carry a comprehensive array of passive safety features to ensure optimal protection in case of an accident. Active safety equipment aims to prevent accidents by warning the driver of potential hazards and helping maintain stability.

Opel Innovation - AFL+

Adaptive Forward Lighting for safer night vision

Imagine headlights which change their pattern and intensity to suit your location, the weather, and your speed. Opel’s advanced Adaptive Forward Lighting system (AFL+) makes night driving safer and more relaxed by improving visibility in curves. This industry leading forward lighting system automatically selects from nine different light functions each designed to provide optimum illumination in each driving situation without dazzling other drivers. The result: less stress, more safety.

Speeding tickets can be an unpleasant surprise. Cruise Control with a speed limiting function helps avoid them. You can set any maximum speed over 25 km/h and stay confidently under the speed limit, even after braking or slowing down. When you want to travel faster just use the kickdown function.

Advanced Park Assistant makes parking easy

Using front and rear sensors the Advanced Park Assistant can detect a suitable parking space and then using visual instructions displayed on the central display guides you into it. Push-button activated, it is computer controlled and also senses obstacles. Both written and visual graphics indicate the steering angles and direction. The result is perfect parallel parking, even in confined spaces.

Rear View Camera (RVC)

Wide-angle rear view vision, automatically activated by selecting reverse gear, takes the neck strain out of reversing. The view is displayed with the rear bumper as a positioning guide on the color display. This enables you to judge exactly where you are while you see any potential obstacles or dangers where you’re going.
