Once we are in June had a chance to see what it looks like the new generation Astra in standard hatchback, the manufacturer from Rüsselsheim to us before the Frankfurt premiere of this car unveiled his station wagon version, which will of course carry a label Astra Sports Tourer. 2016 Opel Sports Tourer is the model which apparently is something that will bring a certain freshness to the customers and fans of the company and even this model. We will present this model in terms of design and quality thanks to the information we have.
Design of 2016 Opel Sports Tourer
As for the design more practical version of the Astra K is basically a hatchback with an extended rear end, which resulted in increasing the volume of the luggage compartment and a 80 l. With the rear seats folded flat luggage volume increases to 1,630 liters. This is a considerable increase compared to the previous model, and say that the external dimensions remained almost identical like predcessor 4702with 1871 and with 1499 mm.
The rear seat back can be folded down to 40:20:40, and optional equipment will be located and FlexOrganizer package which would include luggage nets, rails and fasteners. Also, additional equipment will be able to order and opened with an electric tailgate with hands-free function, or the possibility of automatic opening of the passage of feet beneath the rear bumper, and a slight blow to him.
Further blow the lid is closed. This clever system can detect any obstacle and stop the engine in case of emergency. Additionally, the tailgate can still be opened via a switch on the driver’s side or via remote control integrated with a key.
Interior and equipment list, standard and optional, will almost be completely identical to that of the hatchback, and worth mentioning and Sports Tourer will be available with IntelliLux matrix LED lights, advanced system Opel Eye, with automatic braking, the latest Opel’s infotainment system and the like.
Engine and Specs
Thanks to the new platform, the new Astra Sports Tourer will weigh 200 kg less than its predecessor (ie. Entry-level model weighs 1263 kg – with a driver), and will propel her motorization taken entirely from the hatchback. In other words, I get to stand on the choice of turbocharged petrol and diesel engines, and the offer will be open 3-cylinder 1.0 with 105 hp, which follows the 1.4 with 125 hp and 150 hp, and the 1.6 CDTI with 95 and 136 hp. Top deals will make 1.6-liter turbo power of 200 hp and maximum torque of 200 Nm.
