SCOOP: New Opel Astra Sports Tourer Caught on Film

Wednesday, May 19, 2010 | 0 Comments » Categories | Opel, Opel Astra, Opel Scoops, Opel Videos, Scoops, Vauxhall, Video |

The estate version of the new Opel / Vauxhall Astra has been spotted doing the rounds at the Nurburgring.

Scheduled to be shown for the first time this summer with a Paris Motor Show debut to follow in autumn 2010, the Astra Sports Tourer looks like a smaller version of the Insignia station wagon boasting a more raked roofline and a less boxy / conservative shape than the current model.

The new Astra Sports Tourer rides on a longer platform than its hatchback brethren, which should translate to a more spacious boot.

Engine options for the station wagon model will mirror those offered on the five door Astra, so expect a petrol range stretching from a 1.4-liter naturally aspirated four-pot up to a 180 horsepower 1.6-liter turbo, and a comprehensive diesel lineup topping out with a 160HP 2.0-liter CDTi.

The estate version will be the second model to be added to the new Astra's range. It will be followed by a sportier-looking three-door hatchback, a coupe convertible and a four-sedan model that will also be sold in the States as a Buick.
