Vauxhall has confirmed pricing and specification for the All-new Astra. Available with a choice of powertrains, and for the first time as a highly-efficient Plug-in HYBRID-e version, prices for the All-new Astra range start from £23,275.
The All-new Astra is also the first Vauxhall model to feature the brand’s new trim line-up. The new, simplified, three version line-up of Design, GS Line, and Ultimate will be rolled out on both future and existing models – with the latter expected to be completed in the first half of 2022. The new range structure makes it even easier for customers to choose their new Vauxhall, with specification aligned between electric, and petrol and diesels models making them easily comparable.
Design – The entry point features bold and pure styling and driver assistance tech
GS Line – Combines striking sports styling with advanced technology
Ultimate – GS Line styling and packed with a raft of premium technology
The All-new Vauxhall Astra is a design statement of intent for the brand. After the All-new Mokka, New Crossland and New Grandland SUVs, the All-new Astra is Vauxhall’s first hatchback to interpret the brand’s bold and pure design philosophy.
Dynamic as never before, with sheer, taut surfaces, detoxed of superfluous elements and with the new brand face – the Vauxhall Vizor. With the next compact class generation, Vauxhall shows that the Astra is ready to define a new era.
Like its predecessor launched in 2015, the newcomer brings innovations to the compact class that customers previously only knew from more expensive vehicles. For example, the Astra can turn night into day: the latest evolution of the adaptive IntelliLux LED® Pixel light comes straight from Vauxhall's flagship Insignia and, with 168 LED elements, significantly more than direct class rivals, leads the way in the compact and midsize market sectors.
With the fully digital Pure Panel, analogue instruments are consigned to history. Instead, the new human-machine-interface (HMI) with fresh, modern graphics offers customers a pure, more intuitive experience. Passengers can operate the Astra intuitively via two 10-inch touchscreens, just like a smartphone. The Panel Pro features a glass-to-edge design that seamlessly integrates the two touchscreens. Vauxhall's designers and engineers have taken great care to ensure that the driver receives all the necessary information and useful operating options, but is not burdened with superfluous data or functions. In addition, key settings such as climate control can still be operated via physical switches and buttons.
Typically Vauxhall is also the outstanding seating comfort of the new compact class model. The front seats, developed in-house, are AGR*-certified for healthy backs, with their exemplary ergonomics, are exceedingly comfortable, especially on long journeys.
The driver is supported by state-of-the-art assistance systems ranging from the Intelli-HUD head-up display to the semi-automated Intelli-Drive (which includes Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Positioning Assist, Adaptive Cruise, Semi-Autonomous Lane Change and Curve Speed Adaptation, which slows the car down at bends in the road) and the Intelli-Vision 360-degree parking camera.
The eighth-generation Astra is the first one to give customers the choice between petrol and diesel variants and a highly efficient Plug-in Hybrid model, the Astra Plug-in HYBRID-e, from launch. With order books opening today, first deliveries of the All-new Astra will take place early next year. As part of the new trim structure, all Vauxhall plug-in hybrid and fully electric models will have the same levels of equipment and specification as their equivalent petrol and diesel counterpart, and will be priced to ensure parity in total cost of ownership for the customer.
The All-new Astra will also be available as a fully-electric model from 2023. And will join the Vauxhall all-electric line-up alongside Corsa-e, Mokka-e, Combo-e Life and Vivaro-e Life, as well as an already fully-electric light commercial vehicle line-up of Combo-e, Vivaro-e and Movano-e. Vauxhall’s line-up will be electrified across the line-up by 2024 and solely fully-electric from 2028 – several years ahead of the UK Government’s deadline.
