With a billion things going on in your life, we think you deserve a car you really love to drive. Whether you’re busy at work or day-to-day jobs, doing the school run or getting away from it all, you want a car that handles life brilliantly. Say hello to Astra.
We built it not just to drive, but for something more important: to give you the most of every moment. Showing off state-of-the-art engineering across a range of powerful engines with impressive efficiency, its road handling and drivability just have to be experienced. So let’s get going shall we?
We designed Astra to show off its cutting edge, lightweight build and drop a few hints at all the clever technology inside too. Those flowing lines and sculpted body, along with the rising curve of its floating roof all come together to give it serious presence, whichever way you look at it.
It’s all made to bring out its strong yet sporty character, for a drive as pleasing as it is awesome to look at.
It gives you space when you need it, it’s flexible and thinks about nearly everything. Have you considered getting hooked up with the Astra Sports Tourer?
Sit inside and take a look around. We think you’ll love the quieter, calmer and larger sense of space. Not to mention all the creature comforts inside the Astra. Such as a driver’s ergonomic active seat with wellness functions that can be ventilated and even give you a massage. Heated seats for four and a heated steering wheel for those chilly mornings. In fact, there’s an Astra to suit all kinds of life, whether it’s family, work or play. It’s up to you.
Where Astra leads, we think others are bound to follow. Take a look inside and maybe you’ll see why. Everywhere you look and feel, you’ll find premium-class materials and more than a few great ideas that come as standard. We’ve built them into the Astra range to make driving easier, safer and more fun than ever. It’s future thinking we’re proud to lead.
Inside Astra you’ll find it more comfortable than ever before. You’ll notice higher quality materials, sophisticated colour choices and those little touches that make Astra a very nice place to be indeed.
Astra is all about setting new standards for comfort and technology. Why? Simply to make life on the road easier, fun and more enjoyable for you. Seat ergonomics and plenty of adjustable settings help you find the perfect driving position (however long your journey) and you can upgrade to ergonomic active front seats* if you like. You can even take things a step further with an electrically adjustable leather front driver’s ergonomic active seat with wellness functions that not only memorises your personal settings but has integral massaging and ventilation to keep you relaxed and cool. Heated front and outer rear seats are a cosy treat in the chilly months, and the advanced Electronic Climate Control (ECC), lets you set different temperatures for areas of the car – handy when you’re travelling with friends and family.
Remember what we said about the Astra Sports Tourer thinking about everything? Imagine you’ve got a few bags to throw in the back. No need to put them down - just swipe your foot under the rear bumper, and hey presto, the Power tailgate opens (and closes) itself. And what about space? The large luggage area is made for easy loading, with a nice flat floor (with storage space underneath) and foldable seats for even more leeway.
Every Astra Sports Tourer features a 60/40 split-fold arrangement giving you up to an impressive 1,630 litres of space with the rear seats folded down, and 540 litres with five on board. On certain models, the rather clever FlexFold facility has a remote electric seat release making the whole operation even easier with the rear seats split 40/20/40 for even greater flexibility. The centre section creates a useful opening for longer loads while keeping two full-size rear seats. Simple.
Made for the twists, turns and quirks of UK roads, we’ve powered up Astra with a series of lightweight engines.
Our petrol and diesel engines are more efficient in every way. They deliver smooth, ample power in combination with Astra’s lightweight body for an agile and responsive drive. This is especially true of the ecoTEC engines. All turbocharged, strong and powerful, they deliver exceptional fuel economy and emissions levels for maximum efficiency with an equally impressive dynamic driving experience.
Here’s a not-so bright idea for driving at night. Smart headlights that automatically adjust the shape of your high beam headlights to avoid dazzling other drivers. It’s called IntelliLux LED Matrix headlight technology and means you’ll never have to switch between high and low beam again. It also gives you more time to react to potential hazards, making for safer driving.
Built for the fast-moving demands of the 21st century, the seventh generation Astra is made for people who love to get behind the wheel, but want the benefits of smart sensing technology .
Keeping an ever-watchful, never-tiring electronic eye on the road ahead, Astra’s front camera system supports your own road sense to help prevent scrapes, keep track of speed limits and make life safer for you and your passengers.
Wherever you go, IntelliLink keeps you in touch and entertained. Now there’s no excuse not to call home. Smartphone or tablet, Android or Apple iOS, once it’s connected to your device, IntelliLink lets you project selected apps to the large colour touchscreen display to give you music, phone and sat nav on the go. Bluetooth® connectivity, USB facility and crystal clear digital radio, all come as standard too.
