There’s been some stuff on our minds recently. You see, much as we love cars, we don’t pretend your whole life revolves around a Vauxhall. No, a car shouldn’t be a thing to worship. To us, a car should be a great tool for living. That’s why we only build them for one pretty good reason. You. So we create cars not simply to drive, but for something far more important. To live better. New Astra is no exception. In fact, it proves our rule. It reinvents classic Astra to make it more useful, smart and downright fun to own than ever before. Now step inside…
We designed New Astra to show off its new 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 solid yet sporty character, for a drive as pleasing as it is awesome to look at.
Here it is – New Astra. Now in its seventh generation, it’s a bold reboot of our iconic, British-made hatchback, still proudly built in the UK. It’s now lighter in weight, roomier inside and more compact than ever, and brings together clever engineering with premium design, powered by a new range of ultra-efficient engines.
On the road, New Astra is a seriously addictive drive, because it’s shaped around your life – and living it. So why not see what you make of it?
Powerful, cleaner and more economical. That was at the front of our minds when we re-engineered New Astra. So the entire range is powered by a brand new series of lightweight ECOTEC petrol, diesel and turbo engines. Some of these engines feature super-efficient ecoFLEX technology, but they all deliver higher performance, greater fuel economy and lower CO2 levels.
Comfort and technology
JUST LOOKING OUT FOR YOU
Keeping an ever-watchful, never-tiring electronic eye on the road ahead, New 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. Standard with the Driving Assistance Pack on New Astra SRi models, the front camera system is more than a first in a car of this class – it’s one of the most sophisticated driver assistance systems ever engineered in a car.
New 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. An electrically adjustable leather front driver’s seat memorise’s your personal settings, with integral massaging and ventilation to keep you relaxed and cool.1 Heated front and rear seats2 are a cosy treat in the chilly months, and the advanced Electronic Climate Control (ECC)3, lets you set different temperatures for areas of the car – handy when you’re travelling with friends and family. You can also choose the AirWellness system4 that airs the cabin with two subtly different herbal scents – Energising Dark Wood or Balancing Green Tea.
Wherever you go, Intellilink keeps you in touch and entertained. Now there’s no excuse not to call home. Every New Astra features our R4.0 IntelliLink infotainment system with Bluetooth® and USB connectivity for all Android or Apple iOS smartphones and tablets.*
And digital radio comes as standard too. Once it’s connected to your device, IntelliLink lets you project your smartphone to the large colour touch-screen display – perfect for safely making calls and checking information while you drive.
Built in Britain and made for the twists, turns and quirks of UK roads, we’ve powered up New Astra with a brand new set of lightweight engines. New ECOTEC petrol and diesel engines are more efficient in every way. They deliver smooth, ample power in combination with New Astra’s lightweight body for an agile and responsive drive. This is especially true of the ecoFLEX engines. All turbo-charged, strong and powerful, they deliver exceptional fuel economy and emissions levels for maximum efficiency with an equally impressive dynamic driving experience.
