ASTRA PRODUCT UPDATE

2018.5 MODEL YEAR

NEW ULTIMATE TRIM

Following the successful introduction of the Ultimate trims on Crossland X and Mokka X we are delighted to introduce the new Astra HB5 Ultimate trim.  This new trim takes its rightful place at the top of the Astra range offering an incredible level of standard equipment including 18” bi-colour alloy wheels, IntelliLux LED Matrix headlights, Navi 900 IntelliLink Sat Nav system and much more.

The new HB5 models are available with the 1.4 (150PS) Turbo petrol engine with both manual and automatic transmission, the 1.6 (200PS) Turbo manual petrol engine and the 1.6 (160PS) Bi-Turbo manual diesel engine.

The new Ultimate models build on the specification of today’s Elite Nav models by adding the following features creating the most highly equipped Astra ever:

- 18” bi-colour alloy wheels

- IntelliLux LED Matrix headlight system

- Driving Assistance Pack One featuring intelligent forward camera system (includes forward

  collision alert, traffic sign recognition, following distance indicator & lane departure warning

  with lane assist)

- Parking Pack (includes advanced park assist, rear view camera & side blind spot alert)

- Perforated leather seat trim (instead of non-perforated leather seat trim)

- Driver’s & Passenger’s Ergonomic Sport Seat Pack (includes seat tilt & cushion extensions)

- LED tail lamps

- Dark tinted rear windows

The new Ultimate models will be available in all 11 Astra colours.

These new features provide Ultimate models with a segment leading list of standard equipment making them a very compelling proposition.
