The new Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer is a fine-looking thing

The estate version of the new Vauxhall Astra will go on sale early in 2022

The brand-new Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer has been revealed in its full, estate-bodied glory, as well as it’s set to follow the most recent Astra hatch onto our roads next year.

As you can see, the face of the Sports Tourer has actually been inspired by (all right, alright – lifted wholesale from) its hatchback brother or sister, with that said trademark Vauxhall Vizor housing the LED headlights, front camera, a variety of motorist as well as safety aids, plus the brand name’s brand-new logo. Also, the rear is a trigger factor for deja vu.

Undoubtedly however, it’s bigger: the Astra Sports Tourer gauges 4,642 mm long, 1,860 mm wide as well as 1,480 mm tall, with its 2,732 mm wheelbase growing by 57mm over the previous-gen cars and truck. Nonetheless it’s in fact 60mm much shorter than its predecessor, thanks to a much shorter front overhang.

At the same time there’s 608 litres of area in the boot, rising to 1,634 litres with the 40:20:40-split seats folded down right into their fully level setting.

Non-PHEVs additionally leave out the choice of Vauxhall’s ‘Intelli-Space’ feature; a portable tons floor that likewise indicates you can access the puncture repair and also first aid packages under the boot without needing to completely unbox claimed boot. In an emergency, that may be really handy indeed.

The estate’s indoor design is again similar to the hatch, with a 10-inch tool cluster and also 10-inch electronic touchscreen forming the prime focus of the control panel. Apple CarPlay and also Android Automobile are standard functions, and in a win for common sense, physical switchgear has actually been retained for the environment control. Hooray!

Vauxhall is also at discomforts to clarify exactly how little discomfort its front seats will certainly cause you: they have actually been accredited by the German-based Campaign for Healthier Backs, as well as assure ‘unrivaled comfort’. So you can possibly discard that deluxe living room couch.

Prices and efficiency information is being withheld for now, yet the gas as well as diesel powertrains will certainly supply in between 108 as well as 128bhp, while the plug-in model will produce 222bhp.
