All-new electrified Vauxhall Astra teased
Vauxhall has given us a glimpse of the all-new Astra – the first generation of the British brand’s compact car to be electrified.
Here’s everything we know so far.
First seen on the all-new Mokka, the central exterior design element is a further development of the Vauxhall Vizor. The face of the brand stretches across the front, seamlessly integrating technologies such as the ultra-slim IntelliLux LED headlamps.
At the rear, the Astra nameplate is centrally placed on the sheer, taut surface of the tailgate.
Paul Willcox, Managing Director, Vauxhall, said: “The All-New Astra will open an exciting new chapter in the 41-year history of our popular compact model. We are confident that the next generation Vauxhall Astra will make a powerful impression and attract new customers to the brand, especially now Astra will be electrified for the first time.”
The next generation Pure Panel digital cockpit with fully glazed surfaces echoes the seamless integration of the Vauxhall Vizor with two widescreen displays delivering detoxed information in a horizontal driver-oriented format.
Following suit like so many new cars, physical controls are reduced to the core functions in the form of finely crafted keys. The high quality of the interior experience is further emphasised by the shape, textures and materials used in the newly-designed steering wheel and the ergonomic front seats.
The next generation Astra will be available as a dynamic five-door hatchback and versatile Sports Tourer estate.
