Opel Astra TwinTop 1.8 RHT Review: Twin sharing

"Another day, another topless", you say? Well, we can't agree more. There's no doubt this "coupe + convertible" has been in our market for quite some time, but being one of the most affordable German-made proposition, we decided to take a closer look...

What we like:
pros
Solid interior build quality
pros
well-weighted helm and smooth operating hard top.
What we dislike:
cons
Hardtop unfortunately rattles when on the go
cons
extra weight on the TwinTop means the engine lacks grunt. And a 4-speed automatic? How ancient can it get?

Opel may have intended this car to be both a coupe and a cabriolet, but the less-than-Teutonic metal roof has instead made the TwinTop better as a cabriolet than a coupe.

Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad car per se. The roof is remarkably smooth and jerk-free in operation, while the interior has a solid, well-built feel. The steering, we might add, is nicely weighted as well.

Now if the engineers could only get rid of those pesky rattles...

The quote for my car was fast, responsive and the highest. The transaction was fast and explanation was clear. The person who inspected my car was friendly and professional. It was a good experience with OneShift.

The transaction was very smooth from the minute I get on to their website trying to sell my car till the car ownership transferred and have the money paid by Pay Now into my account. It only takes less than 3 days. The person attending to me are very professional, Jon at the phone in their office and Sean Tan who came down to view and test the car. I am very happy to have decided to sell my car through "One Shift By Carousell"
