Holden burgeoning Astra range has gained a new addition today with the arrival of the Astra Sportwagon.
Joining its Astra Hatch and Sedan siblings, the Astra Sportwagon is designed and engineered at Opel’s Russelsheim headquarters and built in the UK at Vauxhall’s Ellesmere Port manufacturing facility. It benefits from the same tuning setup as the hatch, which was co-developed by the Holden engineering team.
“Astra Sportwagon gives our customers a real alternative to small SUVs. It’s got the space and practicality you’d expect of an SUV but with the style and performance of the award-winning Astra Hatch,” said Holden’s Executive Director – Sales, Michael Filazzola.
“Astra Sportwagon is also packed to the brim with technology, like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, automatic park assist and a kick-gesture power tailgate which is great when your hands are full with the week’s grocery shop!”
The Astra Sportwagon packs the same 1.4-litre turbo engine and six-speed automatic transmission as in the hatch, capable of producing 110kW and 240Nm torque. In terms of fuel economy, drivers can expect a claimed 5.9l/100km, thanks to Astra Sportwagon’s lightweight architecture and stop/start technology across the range.
Importantly for SUV converts and active families, Astra Sportwagon boasts an impressive 1,630L (rear seats folded) boot space, in addition to all the high-tech safety features you’d expect of a new Holden.
Astra Sportwagon is protected by a full suite of active safety technology including Auto Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist and Forward Collision Alert in addition to a Rear View Camera – all available as standard across the range. All combine to offer a full five star ANCAP safety rating.
Astra Sportwagon will be available at Holden dealerships nationwide from October.
