A six-speed gearbox is standard on petrol and diesel engines, while an eight-speed automatic transmission (electric on rechargeable hybrid versions) is optionally available on more powerful engines.

Makes a difference with its dimensions and loading area

With its dimensions of 4.642 x 1.86 x 1.48 millimeters (L x W x H) and a loading sill height of approximately 600 mm, the new Astra Sports Tourer further strengthens Opel's leadership in the station wagon market, while at the same time demonstrating the brand's efficient use of space.

The new Astra Sports Tourer provides a trunk volume of over 608 liters with the rear seat backrests in an upright position. When the rear seat backrests are folded, the trunk volume reaches over 1.634 liters. In addition, when the standard three-piece backrests are folded down, a completely flat loading floor is achieved. Rechargeable hybrid versions offer a luggage volume of over 548 liters and 1.574 liters. In the internal combustion engine options, the luggage volume can be optimized with the optional "Intelli-Space". This movable loading floor can be adjusted with one hand in different positions, high and low, and can be fixed at a 45 degree angle. In addition, unlike its competitors, which only allow the luggage cover to be hidden when the luggage floor is in the upper position, the new Astra Sport Tourer provides greater ease of use by offering the possibility to store the foldable luggage cover when the movable floor is both in the upper and lower positions. The new Astra Sports Tourer can also make life easier when a tire bursts, with its “Intelli-Space”. Tire repair and first aid kits are stored in smart underfloor compartments that can be accessed from the trunk or rear seat seating.

This is only one of the factors that provides ease of loading.
