Vauxhall has given fleets and company car drivers a first glimpse of the all-new Astra – the first generation of the British brand’s compact car to be electrified.
The images, published today (Tuesday, June 8), show the way forward for its up-coming passenger cars.
Paul Willcox, Vauxhall’s managing director, said: “The all-new Astra will open an exciting new chapter in the 41-year history of our popular compact model.
“We are confident that the next generation Vauxhall Astra will make a powerful impression and attract new customers to the brand, especially now Astra will be electrified for the first time.”
The central exterior design element is a further development of the Vauxhall Vizor first seen on the All-New Mokka.
The next generation Pure Panel digital cockpit, with glazed surfaces, provides two widescreen displays delivering information in a horizontal driver-oriented format.
Designed by a team led by British design vice-president Mark Adams, the next generation Astra will be available as a five-door hatchback and sports tourer estate.
Detailed information on Vauxhall’s all-new Astra will follow in the coming months.
