Opel has released new details about the 2011 Astra Sports Tourer.
Designed to appeal to young families, the ST has dynamic styling with a steeply raked windshield, a trapezoidal grille, and a tailgate-mounted spoiler.
Inside, the cabin features a symmetrical dashboard, a sporty steering wheel, FlexFold rear seats (which fold at a touch of a button), and a luggage capacity of 1,550 liters (54.7 cubic feet). Options include ergonomic front seats, a 315-watt Infinity sound system, and GPS navigation.
Under the hood, a variety of four-cylinder engines will be available. Petrol choices include a naturally aspirated 1.4-liter with 74 kW (100 PS / 99 hp), a turbocharged 1.4-liter with 88 kW (120 PS / 118 hp) and 103 kW (140 PS / 138 hp), a naturally aspirated 1.6-liter with 85 kW (115 PS / 114 hp), and a turbocharged 1.6-liter with 132 kW (180 PS / 177 hp).
On the diesel side, there's a 1.7-liter with 81 kW (110 PS / 109 hp) and 92 kW (125 PS / 123 hp) as well as a 2.0-liter with 118 kW (160 PS / 158 hp).
Early next year, Opel will introduce a 1.3-liter CDTI that produces 70 kW (95 PS / 94 hp) and 190 Nm (140 lb-ft) of torque. It will enable the Astra to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 14.9 seconds and hit a top speed of 172 km/h (107 mph). While it's not fast, combined fuel consumption is expected to be 4.1 l/100km (57.4 mpg US) with CO2 emissions as low as 109 g/km.
Look for the redesigned model to start arriving at European dealerships in November.
