Estate version of the new Vauxhall Astra breaks cover. Read on for full details.

  • New Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer revealed
  • Estate version of latest Astra hatchback
  • Core design retained
  • Tweaks at the back for elongated roofline
  • 608 litres of boot space for petrol/diesel cars
  • 548 litres for plug-in hybrid
  • Set to go on sale summer 2022

This is the new Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer. It’s the estate version of the recently-unveiled latest generation of the Astra and will go toe-to-toe with the Ford Focus Estate and Volkswagen Golf Estate.

Sales will kick off in summer, though Vauxhall hasn’t confirmed UK pricing just yet.

New Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer design

It won’t shock you to find the Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer estate looks near-identical to the hatchback.

The whole front end is the same, including standard LED headlights, though some tweaks come at the rear to suit the elongated roofline.

Silver roof rails have been added and the new boot lid positions the Astra Sports Tourer’s number plate higher than on the hatchback. A steeply-raked rear window has been introduced, too.

New Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer interior and infotainment

It’s a similar story for the interior of the Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer too. It’s gone fully digital, with two 10-inch displays — one for the infotainment and the other in place of dials and gauges.

A handful of physical controls remain, but most are now consolidated within the infotainment system — including the climate controls.

Boot space is up to 608 litres for the Astra Sports Tourer, though if you opt for a plug-in hybrid car that will dip to 548 litres because of the space taken up by its additional batteries.

New Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer engines and hybrid

The new Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer launches with a 225hp hybrid petrol engine as its range-topping option. You’ve also got a selection of petrol and diesel engines to choose from, ranging from 110hp to 130hp.

These come with a standard six-speed manual gearbox, with an eight-speed automatic optional for more powerful models. This automatic gearbox also comes as standard on the new hybrid Astra Sports Tourer.

New Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer price and release date

The new Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer will go on sale in 2022, though Vauxhall hasn’t confirmed how much it’ll cost, yet.

Expect it to cost a few grand more than the hatchback version of the Astra, which starts at £23,275.
