Combining high functionality with elegant design, the latest-generation Sports Tourer has a stable, robust stance, complete with muscular rear-wheel arch contours and divided rear-light clusters. With its slightly arched, sloping roofline, it appears sleeker and longer than the original – an effect further enhanced by the divided C-pillar. While it has the same dimensions as the outgoing model, the Astra Sports Tourer offers much more space for drivers, passengers and luggage alike. Inside Astra Sports Tourer you’ll find it quieter, calmer and larger than ever before. You’ll notice higher quality materials, sophisticated colour choices and calm ambient lighting that make Astra a very nice place to be. The Sports Tourer Elite models come with 40/20/40 foldable rear seats – enabling even more flexible loading space. Our FlexOrganiser product range with side rails, dividing-nets and various fastening options is also available, so all loaded materials can be stored easily. Even more impressive is the total luggage capacity – now up to 1630 litres, which is 80 litres more than the previous model. Your car’s contours catch the eye – but your wheels do the talking. Choose from 16”, 17˝ and 18˝ alloy wheels to give your Astra Sports Tourer a powerful presence.
IntelliLux LED Matrix headlights adjust automatically, so you can drive on high beam without disturbing other drivers. Together with innovative driver-assistance systems, the Astra Sports Tourer provides a safer, stress-free driving experience. Vauxhall’s front camera system, standard on SRi models and optional on others, includes smart features like traffic sign recognition, following distance indicator, forward collision alert and an active lane-keep assist indicator. For the first time on a Vauxhall, the boot can be opened without a touch or a remote control. Using ‘Keyless Entry and Start’, a simple, small kicking motion under the rear bumper will open it, and a second kicking motion will close it. (The boot can still be opened by a switch on the driver’s side of the car or via the key’s remote control.)
Multi-adjustable ergonomic AGR front seats and the Power Driver’s Seat in leather with massage and ventilation (both seats optional with the Astra Sports Tourer) enhance your well-being. The Astra Sports Touer's numerous wellness features add a little luxury to everyday driving. Heated front and even heated outer rear seats plus a heated steering wheel (standard on Elite and optional on selected trim levels) will keep you warm at all times. Our AirWellness technology transforms your car into a scented room, with Energizing Dark Wood or Balancing Green Tea fragrances. The Powerflex bar modular system also lets you attach a universal smartphone holder (optional) to your centre console. Our push-button system releases automatically when you pull away. The spacious, up-level mid-console and armrest also add to your comfort and convenience, and are standard on Elite and optional on SRi models.
The Astra Sports Tourer offers a powertrain portfolio of petrol and diesel units ranging from 100PS to 200PS, one of the highlights being our 1.6 CDTi ‘Whisper Diesel’ range. You might also be tempted by the 1.0 ecoTEC Direct Injection Turbo (105PS) petrol engine, or our 1.4-litre (150PS) ecoTEC Direct Injection Turbo, a four-cylinder unit. The Astra Sports Tourers' transmissions will open your eyes. Choose between our 5-speed or 6-speed manual or automatic transmissions. The 5- or 6-speed manual transmissions run super-smooth and offer outstanding precision. Choose our 6-speed automatic transmission for a convenient and highly efficient ride – especially together with our start/stop system. The Astra Sports Tourer’s Sport switch, standard on selected SRI models, sharpens the throttle response and changes the steering feel for a more dynamic ride. Just as impressive as the wide range of powertrain options in the Astra Sports Tourer is its ability to control emissions, which start at just 89g/km of CO2†. The Astra Sports Tourer's 1.6CDTi start/stop ecoTEC engine delivers an impressive combined fuel economy of up to 83.1mpg†. Another highlight is our 1.0 Turbo start/stop engine, with CO2 emissions of just 103g/km.
The Astra Sports Tourer is the first Vauxhall model to be available from launch with our personal connectivity and service assistant, OnStar. OnStar offers many services, such as in-car access to an advisor 24/7 and 365 days a year and emergency assistance. You can also take advantage of a 4G in-car wi-fi hotspot, which can connect up to seven devices simultaneously. (Standard on SRi and Elite models, optional on the other trims). Making its debut in Astra Sports Tourer is the new-generation IntelliLink infotainment system, compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and with a 7-inch colour touchscreen and Bluetooth connectivity as standard. Apple CarPlay puts key iPhone features on the vehicle’s display, allowing drivers to make calls, send and receive messages and listen to music, either from the touchscreen or by voice, via Siri. On Elite models the rear-seat passengers have two USB sockets all to themselves, ensuring your devices can be charged at all times.
