Vauxhall's 2016 Astra Sports Tourer will make its debut at 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. Like its five-door sibling, the Sports Tourer is based on lightweight architecture technology,  fresh design and improved drivetrain system.


Just like the five-door hatch, the 2016 Sports Tourer embraces the "Sculptural Artistry meets Technical Precision" philosophy. But not only that. It even takes it to the next level.

The vehicle will come with extended dynamic lines and slightly arched sloping roofline. This combination gives the Tourer a sort of longer appearance. And the effect is even further enhanced by the divided C-pillar. And now the Tourer has a stable, robust but still confident stance.

Drivetrain System

The engines available for the vehicle are petrol and diesel units offering from 100 hp (73 kW) to 200 hp (147 kW). And now the latest 1.4-Liter 150 hp (110 kW) ECOTEC Direct Injection Turbo and the 1.6-Liter CDTi Whisper Diesel are also included. Furthermore, the 200 hp 1.6-Liter ECOTEC petrol unit will make its debut at the Frankfurt Show.


Depending on the model, the trim level is up to 200 kg lighter than its predecessor. The revised vehicle architecture is what makes this difference in weight so drastic. Furthermore, every components was created for compact design and with lightweight materials.


The vehicle offers Astra OnStar technology, which is famous for its high-speed 4G LTE mobile network, emergency response notification and stolen vehicle recovery alert. The Sports Tourer also offers and the already famous Apple CarPlay and Android Auto systems, available through the latest version of the IntelliLink infotainment system.
