Vauxhall unveils all-new Astra Sports Tourer

Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer

Vauxhall has revealed the all-new Astra Sports Tourer, which will be available with a plug-in hybrid powertrain from launch.

It follows the launch of the all-new five-door hatchback Astra, last month, with the estate version reflecting the same design philosophy. 

UK pricing and specifications for the estate will be announced at a later date, but Vauxhall says that the plug-in hybrid car will produce up to 225PS.

In addition to plug-in hybrid versions, Vauxhall says that the Astra Sports Tourer will be available with “highly efficient” petrol and diesel engines.

Power ranges from 110PS to 130PS across the petrol and diesel variants.

A six-speed gearbox is standard on the petrol and diesel power units, while plug-in hybrid variants come standard with Vauxhall’s smooth eight-speed automatic.

Vauxhall will open the order books for the All-new Astra Sports Tourer early next year and the first customers will take delivery of their cars in early summer 2022.

Inside the new Sports Tourer is a 10-inch driver instrument cluster and a 10-inch digital touchscreen. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will be standard across all models.

Measuring 4,642mm long, 1,860mm wide and 1,480mm tall, and with a loading height of 600mm, 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 Aal-new Astra hatchback, at 2,732mm.

The boot of the Astra Sports Tourer provides up to 608 litres of storage space with the rear seats upright, and up to 1,634 litres when folded.

In addition, when the 40:20:40-split rear seats are folded, the floor is completely flat and even with its underfloor lithium-ion battery, the plug-in hybrid variant offers cargo volumes of 548 litres and 1,574 litres respectively.

Petrol and diesel variants of the Astra Sports Tourer can be specified with the optional ‘Intelli-Space’ feature.

This moveable load floor can be easily adjusted with one hand to high and low positions and tilted at a 45-degree angle.

In addition, for even more convenience, the retractable boot storage cover can be stowed when the moveable floor is in both the upper as well as the lower position – in contrast to competitors that only allow stowage of the cover when the floor is in the upper position.

The Astra Sports Tourer with “Intelli-Space” can also make life easier in the event of a flat tyre. The kits for tyre repair and first aid are stored in clever underfloor compartments that can be accessed from the boot or rear passenger seating area. This means that the kits can be reached without needing to fully unpack the boot.
