The British built Opel Astra sports tourer further extends the dynamic lines of the five-door.
The slightly arched sloping roofline gives the sports tourer a longer appearance, an effect that is further enhanced by the divided C-pillar. The rear view combines high functionality with elegant design. The sports tourer has a stable, robust and safe stance, the muscular rear-wheel arch contours and the divided rear light clusters add to this impression.
The latest generation sports tourer has almost the same dimensions as the outgoing model with a length of 4,702mm, a width of 1,871 mm (with exterior mirrors folded in ) and a height of 1,510mm, but it offers much more space for passengers and luggage. The driver can enjoy 26mm of additional headroom, passengers in the rear have 28mm more legroom, providing more space and comfort. The sports tourer’s total cargo capacity is now 1,630 litres, thanks to more efficient packaging.
Power outputs of 70kW/95hp to 147kW/200hp are delivered by the range of highly efficient diesel and petrol engines (fuel consumption and CO2 emissions combined: 6.2-3.4 l/100km; 142-89g/km ).
Depending on the model and trim level, the Astra sports tourer is up to 190kg lighter than its predecessor. The new vehicle architecture plays a major role in the weight reduction. Every component was checked for compact design and lightweight materials. The body shell weight alone was reduced by around 85 kilograms.
