New Vauxhall crossover concept

A production version of Vauxhall’s new Antara GTC (Gran Turismo Crossover) concept will arrive in showrooms at the end of 2006.

The three-door body is accessed through door handles which glide out of the door electronically when the remote locking is activated. The Antara GTC’s front seats each have their own monorail to slide back and forth on, giving more comfortable legroom for rear seat passengers.

There is no B-pillar in the Antara which allows for a sloping roofline. The back seats can be folded away completely from the rear, producing a completely flat load floor and allowing up to 2,400-litres of usable loadspace.

It is also a fully operational prototype, powered by a 210bhp version of Vauxhall’s 1.9-litre CDTi 16v diesel engine, equipped with two turbochargers.
