  • Five-door hatch and Sports Tourer body styles debut at Frankfurt
  • All-new Astra in Vauxhall showrooms from October
  • New powertrains and tech including OnStar and Apple CarPlay

Luton/Frankfurt – Vauxhall’s all-new Brit-built Astra, in both five-door hatch and Sports Tourer body styles, will premiere at the 2015 International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt on September 15th, 2015 at 09:00 at Stand D09 in Hall 8.0.

Built at Vauxhall’s Ellesmere Port plant in Cheshire, the new Astra is up to 200kg lighter than the outgoing model and thanks to its clever design it is smaller on the outside and bigger inside.
The powertrain portfolio features petrol and diesel units ranging from 100PS to 200PS, including an all-new 1.4-litre (150PS) ECOTEC Direct Injection Turbo and the recently-launched 1.6-litre CDTi Whisper Diesel.

New Astra is also the first Vauxhall to feature OnStar, the ground-breaking connectivity technology now available across Europe. OnStar includes high-speed 4G LTE mobile network, emergency response notification and stolen vehicle recovery alert.

Astra is also one of the first vehicles from a mainstream manufacturer to get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, available through a new version of the IntelliLink infotainment system.
"The all-new Brit-built Astra raises the bar in terms of quality, design and connectivity," said Tim Tozer, Vauxhall's Chairman and Managing Director. "Lighter than ever before, with new powertrains and cutting-edge technology, the new Astra is set to shake up the C-segment when it arrives in showrooms this autumn."
