Efficient packaging: Athletic design with amble space
The new Opel Astra Sports Tourer impresses with its athletic appearance. Just like its five-door sibling, it takes Opel’s design philosophy ‘Sculptural Artistry meets German Precision’ to the next level: efficient, light and dynamic. The newly designed double chrome bar on the grill carries the Blitz and the front headlamps melt into the radiator grill to form a graphic unity. The Sports Tourer further extends the dynamic lines of the 5-door. The slightly arched sloping roofline gives the station wagon a longer appearance – an effect that is further enhanced by the divided C-pillar. The rear view combines high functionality with sporting, elegant design. The Opel Astra Sports Tourer has a stable, robust and safe stance – the muscular rear-wheel arch contours and the divided rear light clusters add to this impression.
The latest generation Sports Tourer has almost the same dimensions as the outgoing model with a length of 4,702 millimeters, a width of 1,871 millimeters (with exterior mirrors folded in) and a height of 1,510 millimeters – however, it offers much more space for passengers and luggage. The driver can enjoy 26 millimeters of additional headroom, passengers in the rear have 28 millimeters more legroom – two convincing improvements for spatial perception and travelling comfort. In addition, it can now shoulder 1,630 liters of luggage thanks to the efficient packaging.
Clever and variable: Loading space improvements that help on a daily basis
Opel offers an extremely practical novelty for the new Astra Sports Tourer, which will help on a daily basis: for the first time, the tailgate can be opened without a touch or a remote control. In combination with “Keyless Open” a simple small kicking motion under the rear bumper is enough to open the tailgate. A further kicking motion under the bumper will close the tailgate. The clever system can detect any obstruction and stops the mechanism in case of emergency. Furthermore, the tailgate can still be opened by a switch on the driver’s side of the car, buttons in the luggage compartment or via the key’s remote control.

Lightweight construction + new generation engines = great driving fun and economy
Each Opel Astra Sports Tourer component was looked at with practicality and efficiency in mind. This is not only visible when it comes to the efficient use of space but especially when it comes to the weight. Compact design on the in and outside and the lightweight bodyshell helped the station wagon shed up to 190 kilograms. High-strength and ultra-high-strength steels, modifications to the axles, to the front and rear along with new production process all played a part in the impressive result.
The entry-level Opel Astra Sports Tourer weighs just 1,188 kilograms (excluding driver) and is thus lighter than before. This obviously has a positive effect on agility, ride comfort, consumption and costs.

A new engine in the portfolio is the two-stage turbocharged top-of-the-range 1.6 liter diesel. The especially compact 1.6 BiTurbo CDTI with 118 kW/160 hp develops its maximum torque of 350 Nm from only 1,500 rpm. The superiority of the common rail engine comes from the sequential, two-stage turbocharging. A small VGT (variable geometry turbine) turbocharger is responsible for the exemplary responsiveness without “turbo lag” in the low rpm range. The Astra Sports Tourer with the 1.6 liter BiTurbo under the hood only needs 8.1 seconds to accelerate from 80 to 120 km/h. But it is not only powerful – it is also frugal and in combination with six-speed manual transmission, Start/Stop and low-rolling-resistance tires, only needs 4.1 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers (109 grams of CO2 per kilometer).
With this brand new powertrain, the diesel offer in the Astra family is now extended to four power levels, all based on the similar 1.6 displacement, with 70 kW/95 hp, 81 kW/110 hp, 100 kW/136 hp and 118 kW/160 hp.

Five different gasoline engines are available for the Astra Sports Tourer including the all-aluminum 1.0 ECOTEC Direct Injection Turbo and the 1.4 liter, four-cylinder turbo. The new 1.6 ECOTEC Direct Injection Turbo that will celebrate its premiere at the IAA is the top-of the-range engine available for the Astra Sports Tourer. The 147 kW/200 hp direct injection turbo unit mobilizes an impressive 300 Nm of torque (with overboost, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions combined: 6.0 l/100 km, 139 g/km, with low-rolling-resistance tires).
Money-saver: Premium quality, low total cost of ownership
However, the outstanding efficiency proposed by the new Astra is not only linked to the innovative powertrain technologies. Thanks to ultra-modern production methods and high-quality materials, it reaches an excellent level of quality – attributes that also have a positive impact on the total cost of ownership, where the new Opel Astra also sets the standard in its class. Predicted residual value of the Opel Astra Sports Tourer 1.4 ECOTEC Direct Injection Turbo Business CDTI Business is up around seven percent or €2,485 over a five-year period and 100,000 kilometers. In total, savings add up to €3,374.
The Opel Astra Sports Tourer 1.6 CDTI Business with 81 kW/110 PS goes one better with a predicted residual value of 48.8% after three years or 90,000 kilometers respectively – almost twelve percent or €3,465 more than the previous model. This sees the new Opel Astra Sports Tourer climb to the top of the total cost of ownership table – no competitor is more cost-conscientious and economical. The attractive terms for the Business models along with generous service intervals of 30,000 kilometers, play just as important a role as reduced fuel consumption.
