The new Astra Sports Tourer establishes new standards for ergonomics, storage possibilities and high quality perception to comfort driver and passengers.
No matter how you drive, or how far, seat comfort is a vital necessity. The new Astra Sports Tourer delivers it with a fully orthopaedic ergonomic sports seat that adjusts 6 ways with 4-way lelectropneumatic umbar support to suit your posture – perfectly. For ultimate convenience it also comes optionally as 6-way power driver seat.
Also it has an adjustable seat cushion extension for relaxing leg support. At the top end perforated leather, with heating, brings the new Astra Sports Tourer into the luxury category. But, if you prefer it, the cloth-covered version provides the same level of orthopaedic support.
The ergonomic sports seat is approved and recommended by AGR (Aktion Gesunder Rücken e. V.), a German medical association that has set orthopaedic requirements for car seats.
The new touch operated electric park brake offers both increased parking security and decreased driver effort. Also in combination with Hill Start Assist preventing the car rolling backwards when stopped on a hill, it gets you moving smoothly and effortlessly for increased comfort and safety.
Air quality and control is a major aspect of the new Astra Sports Tourer interior comfort. The Electronic Climate Control (ECC) offers a new quietness and sense of control, including individual driver setting memory. The air is charcoal filtered and both front seat occupants can choose their preferred temperature separately. The ECC also features controlled partial air recirculation for improved heat up and cooling performance.
The electric sunroof has tilt and slide functions with an anti-trap mechanism. The tinted glass also provides an extra source of light, an integral sliding sunblind covers it to protect against the intrusion of unwanted sunlight radiation.
Whether receiving traffic information, dynamic navigation guidance, accessing preferred radio stations, or your MP3 player, the integrated infotainment system in the new Astra Sports Tourer is as beautifully intuitive to use as it is beautiful to look at.
You have the choice between CD 400 with MP3 playback and aux-in and the CD 400 Plus with double tuner, optional shark fin antenna, USB port and optional DAB, DAB+ and DMB audio for all European digital radio formats. The state-of-the-art Navi 900 Europe features a 7“ color display with bird’s eye view in 3D and an 8 GB SD card, where the navigation software for more than 30 European countries and a comprehensive travel guide with pictures is stored. It has a CD drive for audio files and voice recognition for navigation, phone, radio and CD/USB for easy control. Other advanced features include logbook function for each trip with USB download, automatic POI announcement and the possibility to show individual pictures on the display.
For optional handsfree operation, your mobile phone is connected via Bluetooth®. All important phone functions can be operated from the steering wheel, faceplate, or via Voice Control.
For absolute premium sound the new Astra Sports Tourer also offers the option of the exceptional Infinity Sound System. This uses 7x45 W direct channels to drive 8 premium speakers. The audio signal is digitalized to be fine tuned with Digital Sound Processing (DSP) for accurate sound response. For you the difference is better all-round sound reproduction under all driving conditions.
The new Astra Sports Tourer puts convenient storage within easy reach of the driver and passengers. Door pockets front and rear with bottle holders, a driver’s storage bin, cup holders, a large glove box, and front and rear center armrests with closed storage compartments – depending on equipment there are in total 18 storage facilities for large and small items.
Extending a car’s versatility usually involves inconvenient additions. Not anymore. The FlexFix® rear carrier system – unique in this class – is there whenever you need it, and disappears when you don’t. The FlexFix® rear carrier system simply slides out from the rear bumper, so it doesn’t take up storage space in your garage or home. It takes two bikes up to 30 kg each and can be expended with an adapter to carry two more bikes with 20 kg each. FlexFix® is designed for a total weight of 100 kg, so that also e-bikes can be transported. A big advantage is that it is possible to tilt the loaded bicycle carrier so that the tailgate can be opened. FlexFix® can be combined with Advanced Park Assist (APA) and acoustic Park Pilot since both systems automatically adjust to the extended length of the vehicle.
