To increase the bang-for-buck appeal, the Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer features a ton of bells and whistles, some of which are segment-exclusives. Features like the IntelliLux LED headlamps, the Opel Eye front camera, Opel OnStar, a “keyless Open” tailgate, and a new Intellilink infotainment system equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Powertrain options include petrol and diesel units ranging from 100 hp to 200 hp, including an all-new 1.4L, 150 hp Ecotec Direct Injection Turbo four-cylinder and the recently-launched 1.6-liter CDTi Whisper Diesel. The 200 hp version of the 1.6-liter Ecotec will top the range.
We expect this low-budget car with high-budget features to do very well in its market.
