The new Astra is leaner and more lightweight, making it look more athletic than ever. Its most striking design cue is the divided C-pillar, which creates the impression of a floating roof. Meanwhile the Griffin on the grille and rear ‘blade’ immediately identify new Astra as a Vauxhall.
Despite being smaller, more aerodynamic and more efficient than its predecessor, the new Astra boasts a larger interior – which means passengers in the rear will notice more legroom. The cockpit and instrument panel reflect Astra’s exterior design aesthetic: clean, minimalist and stylish.
LIGHTWEIGHT & EFFICIENT
The Astra doesn’t just look smaller – it is smaller. With a total length of 4.37m, it’s almost 5cm shorter than its predecessor. It’s also 2.6cm lower. On top of this, an average weight loss of 130kg across the new Astra range ensures you’ll notice improved performance and efficiency, with an impressive drag coefficient below 0.30.
The all-new Astra 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 all-new 1.4-litre (150PS) ECOTEC Direct Injection Turbo, a four-cylinder unit.
Just as impressive as the wide range of powertrain options in the new Astra is its ability to control emissions, which start at just 82g/km of CO2. New Astra’s 1.6CDTi stop/start ecoFLEX engine delivers an impressive combined fuel economy of up to 91.1mpg, to give a potential range of 942 miles*. Another highlight is our 1.0 Turbo stop/start Easytronic engine, with CO2 emissions of just 96g/km.
The new Astra is the first new 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.
Making its debut in new Astra is the new-generation IntelliLink infotainment system, compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay*, and with a 7-inch colour touchscreen and Bluetooth connectivity as standard. Android Auto is built around Google Maps, Google Now and the ability to talk to Google, as well as WhatsApp, Skype, Google Play Music, Spotify, podcast players and more. 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.
The new Astra will be the first Vauxhall to have glare-free IntelliLux LED Matrix Lights. This major safety feature automatically and constantly adapts your light beam to every traffic situation. When the camera system detects light from nearby traffic, individual LEDs are deactivated, meaning your high beam automatically dips ‘around’ other vehicles while giving you a wider, perfectly lit field of view.
As well as OnStar and next-generation IntelliLink infotainment, owners can also benefit from a wide range of advanced new Astra technology, including advanced park assist, lane-departure warning, cruise control with speed limiter, and more.
Finally, an 18-way adjustable driver’s seat features a massage function, ventilation and seat-width setting, while rear passengers can enjoy two heated outer back seats.
