New Opel Astra Sports Tourer - Adapted For Business And Family
|   Saturday, April 09, 2016
Let's start by saying that Opel has already received 130,000 orders for the five-door variant and the Sports Tourer. The youngest member of the station wagon generation in the compact class is following the tradition which Opel kept unabated since the introduction of the first Kadett Caravan in 1963. So far, the station wagon versions brought a contribution of 5.4 million units to the sales figures, out of the 24 million total Kadett and Astra models.

The new Astra Sports Tourer is the 10th generation of the Opel compact station wagon version. It is equipped with the same innovative features as its 5-door variant kin.

The Astra Sports Tourer is based on a completely new architecture, with up to 190 kg less weight over the previous model. Given that the station wagon will be equipped with the latest generation engines, the Astra Sports Tourer will be stronger, more agile and fun to drive. Fuel consumption was reduced too, a compelling advantage for companies and drivers who seek practical and representative station wagon models.

In addition, the new model has exactly the same dimensions as the previous one, but a more spacious interior. Occupants can enjoy more headroom and more space for legs in the rear seats, and cargo space has been increased by 80 liters, with a total volume of 1,630 liters. Overall, the new Astra Sports Tourer offers more comfort, plus space in the rear for three child seats. All this makes the Astra Sports Tourer a perfect example of a comfortable office car, or multifunctional family vehicle, suitable for everyday use.

The portfolio of engines with outputs from 70 kW / 95 hp to 147 kW / 200 hp (combined fuel consumption and CO2 emissions: 6.2 to 3.5 l / 100 km; 142 - 92 g / km) complements the already mentioned advantages. The Sports Tourer model will be powered exclusively by the latest generation engines. All petrol and diesel engines, with a displacement between 1.0 and 1.6 liters, combine maximum efficiency with excellent reactions.

A new member in the portfolio is the top range diesel engine with two-stage supercharging with a displacement of 1.6 liters. The engine is extremely compact, a 1.6 Twin Turbo CDTI 118 kW / 160 hp, and generates a maximum torque of 350 Nm at 1,500 rpm. The engine's superiority is conferred by the sequential turbocharging in two stages.

The range of five petrol engines available for the Astra Sports Tourer includes the 1.0 ECOTEC Turbo Direct Injection model, manufactured entirely from aluminum and the 1.4-liter turbo four-cylinder model. The new 1.6 turbo ECOTEC unit with direct injection system, which will be presented in premiere at the IAA, is the most powerful engine available for the Astra Sports Tourer. The turbo unit rated at 147 kW / 200 hp with direct injection generates an impressive torque of 300 Nm (with amplification function, combined fuel consumption and CO2 emissions at 6.0 l / 100 km, 139 g / km with low rolling resistance tires).

Traditionally, the Astra Sports Tourer contributes about 30 percent of Astra's sales in Europe. The main customers are companies and families who want to combine the practical solutions of cargo space and maximum comfort during travel. The biggest markets for this versatile station wagon, which can be ordered since last fall, are Germany, Britain and Italy.
