If you have been holding out for a 2016 Opel Astra Sports Tourer, the day has finally come. While the 2016 Opel Astra K has been available for a few months now, Opel has made it known the wagon variant of Astra has officially entered production.
Employees were joined by Peter Thom, Vice President Manufacturing Opel Group, and Stefan Fesser, Ellesmere Port Plant Director, as the first vehicle left the production line. Opel has high hopes for this generation of Astra to help grow and bring the brand back into the black.
Based on the same D2XX architecture, the Astra Sports Tourer gains a longer appearance thanks to its divided C-pillar, and although dimensions remain nearly identical to the previous-generation Sports Tourer, passengers are treated to 1.02-inches of additional headroom, and 1.1-inches of additional legroom.
Opel and Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourers should be reaching local dealers shortly.
