The new Opel Astra Sports Tourer has piqued the public's interest, as evidenced by the specialist publication AUTO Straßenverkehr's survey for the "Family Car of 2022". Since March, participants have been able to vote for their favorite car. With 22.7 percent of the votes, the new Opel compact station wagon won among all vehicles under 25,000 euros in the "Design" category. In comparison, 19.3 percent of the magazine's readers ranked the Opel Astra Sports Tourer first in the "Technologies" category. This demonstrates how the new Opel Astra Sports Tourer stands out for its maximum practicality, size, and comfort, as well as its beauty, and how the numerous technology and assistance systems make every journey safer, more relaxed, and easier to cope with driving in the foreground.
The new Opel Astra Sports Tourer is a true stylistic manifesto of the brand: more dynamic than ever, characterized by clean and exciting lines without extra frills, and with the Opel Vizor, the brand's new face that integrates technologies such as the front camera and the optional Intelli-Lux LED pixel active headlights that do not blind other drivers and are equipped with a total of 168 independent LED elements. This exemplifies how the new Opel Astra Sports Tourer brings modern innovations to the compact station wagon category.
The Pure Panel stands out in the passenger compartment as the digital and intuitive driver's seat, which comes standard with two 10-inch screens and the next-generation man-machine interface. State-of-the-art assistance systems, such as the Intelli-HUD (Head Up Display) or the Intelli-Drive system, which includes Crash Alert with Automatic Emergency Braking and Pedestrian Recognition and Fatigue Recognition System, Lane Keeping System, Automatic Cruise Control, Side Blind Spot Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, assist the driver.
Since the start of orders in February, the highly successful compact has been available in an electrified plug-in hybrid version and super-efficient petrol and diesel engines. As a result, the Opel Astra becomes the brand's first electric station wagon, and the battery-electric variant will join the lineup as early as 2023.
The new Opel Astra Sports Tourer has won over the AUTO Straßenverkehr audience with its many strengths: nearly 11,000 readers have participated in the online survey since March. As usual, the field of contenders was reasonably large: 123 station wagons, vans, SUVs, and crossovers were submitted to the readers.
