A new generation of the Vauxhall Astra is on the horizon, with fresh teaser images giving a hint of how the new model will look.
It’ll be an alternative to other established models such as the Ford Focus and VW Golf and is set to be revealed in full later this year.
2022 Vauxhall Astra design
Teaser images of the new Vauxhall Astra give a vague hint of how the car looks, with a front fascia that looks similar to the latest version of the Mokka. This gets ‘IntelliLux’ LED technology for the headlights, which are topped by a thin, single-piece daytime running light.
It’s likely an unbroken grille piece will connect the two, with the Vauxhall badge sitting front and centre atop the black trim.
There’s only one shot of the rear, which doesn’t give much away beyond black-painted Astra lettering across the tailgate. As well as a hatchback, the Astra will also be offered as a Sports Tourer estate.
2022 Vauxhall Astra interior and infotainment
One of this batch of teaser images shows the dual-screen infotainment setup inside the new Vauxhall Astra. This consists of a digital driver’s display in place of usual dials and gauges, along with a central touchscreen display.
Vauxhall hasn’t confirmed how large these screes will be, but it looks to be the same 10-inch system as found in the Mokka. It’s almost certain to support Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard, too.
2022 Vauxhall Astra engines
No confirmation yet on which engines the new Vauxhall Astra will use exactly, though there’s a strong chance it’ll come with the option of mild-hybrid, plug-in hybrid or pure-electric options. Otherwise, It’s likely a range of petrol engines will be available, and potentially a couple of diesel engines, too.
2022 Vauxhall Astra price and release date
No word yet on when the new Vauxhall Astra will go on sale, but it’s unlikely to be before the end of 2021. Pricing will probably be a little higher than the current car, so expect entry-level cars to cost from around £22,000.
