Opel has shown us this morning all the details of the new generation of the family Astra. Like the compact, the Opel Astra Sports Tourer 2022 It represents a radical change from its predecessor, something that Stellantis has also done with the Peugeot 308. Both are developed on the EMP2 platform.
The exterior design inherits the new design language premiered at the Mokka. The front is characterized by LED matrix headlights connected by a gloss black trim. We see small fog lights perfectly integrated into the front bumper and a large lower air intake.
Seen in profile, the pillars and the roof in black they stand out with the striking blue color chosen for the bodywork. The C-pillar, for its part, maintains the same tonality. As usual we will see new colors for the exterior and new designs for the rims, which will grow in size.
In dimensions, the new Opel Astra Sports Tourer amounts to 4.64 meters long, 1.86 meters wide and 1.48 meters high. Interestingly, it is 60mm shorter than its predecessor. The battle reaches the 2.73 meters. Thanks to this, the trunk grows to 608 liters.
By folding down the seats, the capacity of the cargo space increases to 1,634 liters. In the case of the plug-in hybrid versions, the boot is reduced in volume to 548 and 1,574 liters, respectively. This is so because of the inclusion of the lithium ion battery. It also happens in the Peugeot 308 SW.
Digitization reaches the passenger compartment
Another design revolution has occurred in the interior. Digitization has come to the family Opel Astra in the footsteps of the Mokka. A group of digital instruments from 10 inches and an infotainment screen of 10 inches that dominate the dashboard.
The 2022 Astra Sports Tourer also features a unique three-spoke steering wheel and a small gear lever built into the transmission tunnel. Interesting options include a Head-Up Display, 360 degree cameras, wireless charging smartphone and AGR seats, among others.
The Opel Astra Sports Tourer will mean a price increase of around 2,000 euros. It should start at approximately € 25,000 without discounts.
Optionally, the tailgate can have hands-free operation. Combustion variants will also benefit from the Intelli-Space loading floor. This can be adjusted to two heights and allows access to the puncture kit without having to remove all the luggage.
