Vauxhall has announced pricing for the 2016 Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer. The vehicle is offered in four trim levels – Design, Tech Line, SRi and Elite; there are also NAV grades of the top-end SRi and Elite trim levels. The base Astra ‘Design’ starts at £16,585 OTR.
The 2016 Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer is up to 200 kg lighter than its predecessor. This has been made possible due to the usage of high-strength and ultra-high strength low-weight steels, lighter front and rear axle as well as compact subframes.
The 2016 Astra Sports Tourer is sleeker and longer, but in fact, has the same dimensions as the outgoing model. Vauxhall says that the cabin has been made more spacious than before. The overall luggage capacity has increased by 80 litres and now stands at 1,630 litres.
Standard features of the Design grade includes comfort seats, multi-function steering wheel, air conditioning, cruise control electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors, remote central locking and R4.0 IntelliLink infotainment system with a 7.0-inch colour touchscreen supporting DAB digital radio, Bluetooth audio streaming, Bluetooth mobile phone portal, USB and aux-in.
The 2016 Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer is powered by a choice of both petrol and diesel engines ranging from 1.0-litre to 2.0-litre units having outputs between 100 PS (99 hp) to 200 PS (197 hp). The diesel engine is a 1.6-litre unit powering the ecoFLEX model; the output is at 110 PS (108 hp) and with start/stop technology the fuel efficiency and fuel economy is rated at 85.6 mpg (30.20) and carbon emission at 86 g/km. Detailed performance and power figures have not been released yet.
The all-new model will start reaching dealerships by March 2016. The trim-wise specification and price can be seen in the press release below.
