Vauxhall confirms prices and specs of new Astra

10 November 2021

Vauxhall has confirmed pricing and specification details for the all-new Astra, including a plug-in hybrid version, with an all-electric model available from 2023. Prices for the all-new Astra range start from £23,040 (P11d price) and it is the first Vauxhall model to feature the brand’s new trim line-up.

 

The new, simplified, three version line-up starting with the entry-level Design, GS Line, and Ultimate will be rolled out on both future and existing models – with the latter expected to be completed in the first half of 2022.Vauxhall says that the new range structure makes it even easier for customers to choose their new Vauxhall, with specification aligned between electric, and petrol and diesels models making them easily comparable.It is also the first Astra to utilise a Stellantis group platform and is closely linked to the new Peugeot 308, with both using PSA-derived EMP2 underpinnings.The Astra’s exterior shares styling details with the recently-launched Mokka and Grandland, with Vauxhall’s new signature ‘Vizor’ front panel.

 

It’s a similar story inside, where the new Astra is equipped with the brand’s Pure Panel wrap-around digital cockpit. The new interior reflects the segment’s transition to digital cockpits, as led by the new Volkswagen Golf.

 

The eighth-generation Astra is the first one to give customers the choice between petrol and diesel variants and a plug-in hybrid model, the Astra plug-in hybrid-e, from launch.

 

P11d pricing for the Astra plug-in hybrid-e starts from £32,145, while pricing for the new fully electric Astra has not been published yet.

 

With order books opening today (Tuesday, November 9), first deliveries of the All-new Astra will take place early next year.

 

As part of the new trim structure, all Vauxhall plug-in hybrid and fully electric models will have the same levels of equipment and specification as their equivalent petrol and diesel counterpart, and will be priced to ensure parity in total cost of ownership for the customer, says the manufacturer.

 

Vauxhall will offer the new Astra with two plug-in hybrid options – the same 180PS and 225PS units from the Peugeot 308. Using a 1.6-litre petrol engine and electric motor, they both emit from 24g/km of CO2 and have a zero emission range of up to 35 miles.

 

In addition, there will be 1.2-litre petrol, with 110PS or 130PS, and a 1.5-litre diesel, with 130PS, in combination with a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission. The petrol models will emit 122-127g/km of CO2, while the diesels have emissions from 113g/km.

 

The fully electric Astra-e is yet to be detailed, but will go on sale in early 2023.

 

The new Astra is only 4mm longer than the previous model, but its wheelbase has grown by 13mm to make more room for passengers. The boot has a volume of 422 litres.

 

Feature highlights include adaptive Intelli-Lux LED Pixel lights, AGR-certified seats and semi-autonomous driving assistance systems.

 

The Vauxhall Pure Panel, first introduced in the Mokka, features two 10-inch displays, seamlessly integrated – together with the driver’s side air vent – in a horizontal format. Its touchscreen is complemented by a row of switches to simplify to the operation of key features.

 

Vauxhall says it has fine-tuned the Astra’s chassis and describes the handling as “composed as well as dynamic”.

 

Petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid versions of the new Astra will be available to order in October, which is when prices and specifications are likely to be available. The first cars are expected to arrive in the UK in early 2022.
