It's difficult not to notice an Astra on the road. Its curves and charismatic presence immediately capture the eye. But great design and build quality are not just skin deep. Take a closer look insidie.
The frontal styling has the same immediate impact and appeal that characterizes the Insignia. The wide stance gives an impression both of sturdiness and sporting capability, as does the integrated style of the lights, grille, and front bumper. The eagle eye-shaped headlamps hold the prominent daytime running lights. The steeply raked windshield adds sporty excitement to the traditional hatchback format.
Although it is a full 5-seater with all the roominess and flexibility of a 5-door hatchback, the overall proportions of the Astra give it a distinctive flowing coupé silhouette.
The “blade” element first seen in Insignia further conveys the dynamic family resemblance.
From the rear the impressive proportions that characterize the Astra are immediately apparent. The powerful broad shouldered stance is emphasized by the falling roof line, a feature that also contributes to the coupé-like profile.
The sweeping lines and wraparound instrument panel harmonize to create a welcoming feeling of airy roominess. The high quality materials of the Astra are matched by the excellent standard of workmanship. The main surfaces are textured with soft touch material and high quality grains.
Chrome accents add a technical, modern edge to the cockpit. The blade theme can also be found here – in details like the air vents, door grab handles and steering wheel.
Great attention has been paid to detail in the Astra – like the design and practical placement of control elements and storage facilities within easy reach. The result: an exquisitely driver-oriented cockpit with excellent ergonomics.
