Vauxhall has revealed the new Sports Tourer estate version of its Astra, which brings a smart new design, greater interior technology and electrified powertrains for the first time.

Vauxhall showed off its new Astra hatchback earlier this year, but this is our first look at the brand’s more practical estate model. 

Mirroring the front-end design of the hatch, the Sports Tourer gets Vauxhall’s new ‘Vizor’ design language, which wraps standard-fit LED headlights, the Griffin logo and safety cameras behind one clear strip of glass. This estate model has a 6cm-longer wheelbase than the Hatch, too, while gaining a larger rear overhang to allow for greater boot space.

The rear also features prominent ‘ASTRA’ lettering, sharp crease lines and large LED lights that stretch horizontally along the boot. 

Inside, the Astra’s cabin gets Vauxhall’s latest technology, including a ‘Pure Panel’ display that encompasses a 10-inch touchscreen with wireless smartphone mirroring and a 10-inch digital instrument cluster. 

And despite being slightly smaller than the outgoing Astra estate, this Sports Tourer’s boot is noticeably larger, increasing from 540 to 608 litres, while with the rear seats folded this can increase to up to 1,634 litres.


Vauxhall has also introduced an optional ‘Intelli-Space’ feature, which gives customers a height adjustable boot floor that can be moved with just one hand, while also tilted at up to 45 degrees. You also get a retractable boot cover that can fit neatly beneath the floor when not in use. 

In terms of engines, like the hatch, Vauxhall will offer customers a turbocharged 1.2-litre petrol and turbocharged 1.5-litre diesel, which put out between 108bhp and 128bhp. At the top of the range there is also a plug-in hybrid version, which produces a generous 222bhp from its 1.6-litre petrol-electric setup. An electric range of around 30 miles should also be possible. 

Vauxhall will open orders for its new Astra Sports Tourer at the start of 2022, with first deliveries expected in early summer next year.
