New 2022 Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer plug-in hybrid unveiled

The estate version of the latest Astra continues Vauxhall’s bold new approach to styling and will be available as a plug-in hybrid from launch

Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer

With the new Astra hatchback already on sale and deliveries expected in 2022, Vauxhall has now revealed the Sports Tourer estate version of the car. It'll compete head on, as usual, with the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus estates, as well as its Peugeot 308 SW sister car. 

Along with the traditional petrol and diesel variants, the Astra Sports Tourer will also be available with a plug-in hybrid drivetrain, making this the first electrified estate from Vauxhall. The top-spec version makes a combined 225bhp.

Choosing the plug-in hybrid option has a relatively minimal impact on boot space, too, reducing capacity by just 60 litres from 608 to 548 with the rear seats up, increasing to 1,574 when they're folded flat. The optional ‘Intelli-Space’ storage feature is only available on petrol and diesel-engined models, however.

Much like the hatchback, Vauxhall’s new ‘Vizor’ styling should see this Sports Tourer stand out more than the old model, but the Vizor also has a functional purpose, by allowing the sensors for the various driver-assistance and safety features to be hidden in plain sight. 

Inside, Vauxhall has fitted its Human-Machine-Interface (HMI) fully digital display setup, made up of a 10-inch driver instrument cluster and 10-inch digital touchscreen. Thankfully, physical buttons for essential features such as climate control remain.

The Astra Sports Tourer looks like it should prove particularly comfortable on longer journeys, at least for those up front, as the front seats are certified by the German organisation Aktion Gesunder Rücken (AGR) – the 'Campaign for Healthier Backs'.

Vauxhall will open orders for the new Astra Sports Tourer in early 2022, with the first deliveries planned for the summer. UK pricing and specifications have yet to be announced.
