Vauxhall announces pricing and specification for all-new Astra Sports Tourer
Vauxhall has confirmed pricing and specifications for its all-new Astra Sports Tourer.
Available with a choice of powertrains, including a highly-efficient Plug-in Hybrid-e version for the first time, prices for the Astra Sports Tourer start from £25,005 on-the-road, with first deliveries due in late summer.
Measuring 4,642mm long, 1,860mm wide and 1,480mm tall, and with a loading height of 600mm, the practical tourer further strengthens Vauxhall’s leading reputation in the estate sector and is another showcase of Vauxhall’s known talent for efficient packaging.
The overall length is 60mm shorter compared to the previous generation Astra Tourer, thanks to the short front overhang, and features a 57mm longer wheelbase compared to the All-new Astra hatchback, at 2,732mm.
Inside, the fully digital Pure Panel human-machine interface (HMI) offers customers a pure, intuitive experience and features a 10-inch driver instrument cluster and a 10-inch digital touchscreen.
Settings such as climate control can still be selected directly via physical switches below the console for ease of access.
From standard, the tourer features the latest automated driver assistance systems. All models come with a driver drowsiness system, eight airbags, lane departure warning and automatic emergency braking.
In addition, the tourer can be had with active cruise control which increases or decreases speed to follow the vehicle in front, up to a complete stop. Models with automatic transmissions can resume driving automatically with the Stop & Go technology.
GS-Line models come with an additional multifunction camera in the windscreen, four body cameras (one at the front, one at the rear and one on each side), five radar sensors (one at the front and one at each corner), as well as ultrasonic sensors front and rear.
The ultra-ergonomic seats are the best the compact estate segment has to offer, and are extremely comfortable, especially on long journeys. The driver’s seat has been developed in-house and is AGR certified resulting in unrivalled comfort and support.
The tourer will be available from launch with a 1.6 petrol plug-in Hybrid-e powertrain for the first time, producing 180hp and offering up to 42 miles of electric range.
In addition to plug-in hybrid-e versions, the tourer will be available with highly efficient petrol and diesel engines.
Customers have a choice of 1.2-litre or 1.2-litre turbo three-cylinder petrol engines with a six-speed manual transmission, with turbo variants also available with a smooth eight-speed automatic.
Diesel models come with a 1.5-litre turbo four-cylinder engine, which can be had either with a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic.
