Kadett with a new name, except in South Africa, where the hatchbacks retained the old one till 1999. New model name meant to bring consistency to Opel’s range, where the model names would end in a, and brought over from Vauxhall, which had called its Kadett the Astra since 1980. Carryover platform, with upgrades, but body not as fluid as Kadett E’s. Hatchbacks first in July 1991, Caravan estate from October. Four-door saloon from 1992 and Bertone-made cabriolet from 1993. Some quality issues with rust problems on original models; production improvements after mid-term changes in 1994.
