The Opel Astra Sports Tourer’s athletic looks are backed by an equally athletic driving experience. The new wagon shares the same innovative rear suspension and mechatronic FlexRide chassis as its hatchback peer.
A wide powertrain choice of nine fuel-efficient engines provides a bandwidth from 70 kW/95 hp to 132 kW/180 hp. Fuel-saving Start/Stop technology will be first introduced on the 1.3 CDTI engine (70 kW/95 hp) early next year, resulting in CO2 emissions as low as 109 g/km.
The Astra Sports Tourer now takes Opel’s exciting new design language – sculptural artistry meets German precision – into the compact wagon segment. Conceived in parallel with its hatchback stable mate, the wagon variant has its own stand alone identity. The athletic close-coupled proportions give it a unique presence, beyond being simply a wagon version of the hatchback.
The Opel Astra Sports Tourer is the first compact wagon outside the premium segment to offer a remote seat-folding function. This ergonomic convenience provided by the FlexFold Rear Seats allows the cargo-carrying capacity to be increased from 500 to 1,550 liters by simply pushing a button. It automatically releases and lowers each section of the 60/40 split-fold rear seat back.
