The new Opel Astra improves the air quality on board


Available on the Astra as well as the Sports Tourer version, Intelli-Air works through a series of air and particulate filters as well as an air quality monitoring system.

Working through a series of air filters and particulates as well as an air quality monitoring system, Intelli-Air makes the indoor environment healthy and comfortable.

Opel focuses on passenger health by ensuring good indoor air quality. This is why the new Astra keeps the air clean, thanks mainly to the new Intelli-Air system that ensures the quality of the air inside the car.
“During the development of the new generation of Astra, we made perceived quality a priority and therefore focused on working in every detail,” says Mariella Vogler, chief engineer of Astra. “We increase the safety of all road users by implementing advanced technological systems. This is also the case with the comfort and health of Astra passengers. The pleasant atmosphere in the interior definitely contributes to the comfort: this is where the new Intelli-Air system comes into play”.

Intelli-Air: mode of operation
Intelli-Air is an automatic air exchange system that makes the indoor environment healthy and comfortable. Available on the Astra as well as on the Sports Tourer version, this new technology works through a series of air and particulate filters linked to an air quality monitoring system. The climate in the passenger compartment is constantly controlled by the position of the recirculation vent. When the outside air quality is poor, the car’s air quality sensor (AQS) closes the air intake so that no pollutants can enter the cabin. On the other hand, if the air inside is stale or polluted, for example with tobacco or dust on clothes, the mouth opens to give the passengers cool air.
Passengers can see for themselves the air quality inside their car. The Intelli-Air system informs them via a large color touch screen. It shows a car-shaped emoji that changes color depending on the air quality in the cabin.

Protection against allergies
Intelli-Air includes genuine Opel activated carbon and particulate filters. They are made up of two layers that prevent particles from entering the passenger compartment and filter odors and gases such as ozone. Best of all, the new system has the ability to completely remove pollen from the cabin, preventing allergic reactions and hay fever while driving. “If a driver finds himself having to sneeze frequently, the risk of an accident increases. To sneeze is to look away from the road even for 50 meters, if for example you are driving at 100 kilometers per hour, recalls the manufacturer. So it’s a matter of driving comfort and well-being, but also safety “.
Once the pollen season is over, the Intelli-Air system will continue to provide fresh air and comfort inside the car. Filters are made of waterproof material, which prevents them from freezing in winter and harbors germs and bacteria.
Please note that like all other pollen filters, the Intelli-Air should be checked and replaced once a year.
