While the 2016 Opel Astra K continues to clean up with awards in a variety of categories, not to mention its win of the European and UK car of the year award, its slightly longer sibling is seeing similar success.
Opel stated the 2016 Opel Astra Sports Tourer has tallied up more than 130,000 orders from customers eagerly awaiting the refinement and innovation brought in by the Astra K, with a little bit more space.
“Our new Astra Sports Tourer and our new Astra hatchback – they are two sides of the same coin. Both represent a quantum leap for Opel and for the compact class. Apart from offering ultramodern connectivity and evolutionary design, the station wagon version focuses even more on efficiency,” said Opel Group CEO Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann. “Our Sports Tourer is the perfect combination of practicality and dynamism: more space, less weight and in addition clever, trendsetting equipment details and features such as the power tailgate that opens and closes automatically with a little kick of the foot. This is how compact class station wagons should be nowadays.”
Since the introduction of the Opel Kadett A CarAvan in 1963, more 5.4 million units of Kadett and Astra have been sold as wagons. And that isn’t stopping here.
