Vauxhall has previewed the next generation of the Astra, with the manufacturer confirming it will feature electrified drivetrains.
The new Astra will be available as a five-door hatchback, with a Sports Tourer estate version also on offer, as the brand looks to expand its electrification portfolio.
Images show a bright gold exterior with a focus on the Astra’s ultra-slim IntelliLux LED® headlamps. According to Vauxhall, it will also feature a ‘next-generation Pure Panel digital cockpit’ with fully glazed surfaces paired with the integration of the ‘Vauxhall Vizor’ that was featured on the Mokka.
Paul Willcox, managing director of Vauxhall, said: “The All-New Astra will open an exciting new chapter in the 41-year history of our popular compact model. We are confident that the next generation Vauxhall Astra will make a powerful impression and attract new customers to the brand, especially now Astra will be electrified for the first time.”
The next-generation Astra is the latest step in Vauxhall’s aim to have a fully electrified range by 2024. More information, including pricing and specifications, is expected over the next few months.
