The new Opel Astra Sports Tourer is a versatile car for the modern era; it's electric and digital, and its design will win you over. It builds on our long history of compact station wagons while incorporating cutting-edge features such as a hybrid powertrain that can be recharged on the go. The new Opel Astra Sports Tourer comes standard with an electric motor and highly efficient gas and diesel powertrains. The gasoline and diesel models have 110 to 130 horsepower, while the plug-in hybrid models have up to 165 kilowatts (225 horsepower). Whether you go with a gasoline or diesel engine, a six-speed transmission is standard.
With dimensions of 4,642 by 1,860 by 1,480 millimeters (L by W by H) and a loading sill of around 600 millimeters, the new Astra Sports Tourer is extremely practical. It strengthens Opel's position as a market leader in the station wagon segment and demonstrates the company's expertise in maximizing interior space. Despite the new model's shorter overall length, the wheelbase is 2,732 millimeters longer due to the shorter front overhang. This model's wheelbase is 57 mm longer than that of the new Opel Astra with five doors.
The trunk space of the new Opel Astra Sports Tourer is 608 liters with the rear seatbacks up, and it can expand to a maximum of 1,634 liters. There's enough space for a medium-sized dog carrier, for example. Furthermore, the floor can be completely flattened by folding down the 40/20/40 split rear seatbacks (a standard feature). The rechargeable hybrids' lithium-ion batteries are housed beneath the floor, ensuring that the 548 l (backup) and 1,574 l loading volumes are always available (backs down).
The optional Intelli-Space system maximizes trunk space in vehicles with internal combustion engines. With just one hand, this mobile loading floor can be adjusted from high to low or tilted to 45 degrees. Furthermore, unlike the competition, the cargo cover can be stored in either the up or down position of the moving floor.
In the event of a flat tire, the new Opel Astra Sports Tourer equipped with Intelli-Space can help. The spare tire and first-aid kit are concealed beneath the floor and can be accessed from the trunk or the back seat. As a result, these kits can be accessed without requiring the entire trunk to be unloaded. A simple kick under the back bumper opens and closes the trunk mechanically (option).
The new Opel Astra Sports Tourer stands out for being the first of its kind in the compact station wagon segment and its features. Among the company's many offerings, the Intelli-Lux LED Pixel Light, the latest iteration of its adaptive and anti-dazzle lighting system, stands out. This system, which was directly adapted from the top-of-the-line Opel Insignia and Grandland, is an exceptional asset in the compact and family segments.
Opel is well-known for its exceptional comfort, particularly in its seats. The front seats of the new Astra Sports Tourer were designed in-house and have been certified by the nonprofit organization Aktion Gesunder Rücken (AGR), an association for healthy backs. The ultra-ergonomic car seats, which include electric recline and electro-pneumatic lumbar support, are the best in the compact class. They are upholstered in Nappa leather and have ventilation, massage, and heating for the driver and front passenger.
The availability of high-tech aids such as a head-up display and Intelli-Drive 2.0, both of which are optional, benefits the driver significantly. Passengers can rest assured that they will never be distracted by the driver's hands on the wheel.
