The all New Astra is expected to start off in a family friendly 5dr with the practical sports tourer and a cutting edge 3dr GTC version coming later. Currently, we are due to see LED headlights in a trapezoid shape at the front, larger air ducts, longer and more sculpted bonnet and it will come with 16 inch alloys, larger wheels being optional.
Inside, the cabin will be more spacious and we are expected to see enhanced security features, control panel equipped with state of the art infotainment system for internet, radio and navigation and also Vauxhall’s IntelliLink system which allows customers to connect their smart phone to the vehicle and use their apps.
The recently introduced 114bhp 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbo engine is likely to feature in the Astra, giving Vauxhall a direct rival to the 1.0-litre engine found in the Ford Focus. The 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engines are expected, too.
The Astra will be built at Vauxhall’s Ellesmere Port plant, in Cheshire. The current Astra and Astra Sports Tourer are produced there at the moment, and the new car is set to be built there as part of a £125million investment.
Production begins in the next year so will reportedly reach us by spring 2015. Prices have been estimated between £16,500 and £22,000.
