The Vauxhall Astra GTC is a sleek, sporty and stylish coupé that offers you three doors and a comfortable drive that you can enjoy every day. It also boasts powerful engines, well-weighted and precise steering and an advanced HiPerStrut front suspension to improve driving dynamics and ride quality.
With strong lines and angular front and rear headlight this Astra has an expressive and muscular appearance that is ideal for a sporty coupé. Wheel options include 18", 19" and 20" variants – along with the brashly flared wheel arches, they complete the strong and athletic profile of the car.
The GTC’s characteristic flair is replicated on the inside of the car. There are four trim levels – Sport, Sri, BiTurbo and VXR – each of which provide an increasing atmosphere of luxury and a new level of technology to make driving simpler, less tiring and more enjoyable. The selection of optional extras and features available with the new Astra GTC includes heated seats made of Nappa leather, an Infinity sound system, and a high-quality infotainment system complete with a hands-free telephone set and Bluetooth® connectivity.
The extensive petrol engine range includes 118bhp and 138bhp 1.4 litre options, as well as a 197bhp 1.6 litre turbocharged engine. The four diesel options are 109bhp and 128bhp 1.7 litres, a 163bhp 2.0-litre and a 192bhp 2.0-litre Biturbo engine. To improve fuel economy and save you money most Astra GTC’s come with start/stop technology as standard. Perhaps the most effective blend of efficiency and performance is the 163bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine that returns 58.9mph and emits 127g/km of CO2.
The GTC chassis, meanwhile, provides you with superb comfort while driving, excellent steering response, and reduced noise and vibrations. For your safety there is a four-channel anti-lock braking system with electronic brake-force distribution, traction control and ESP, all designed to make the Astra GTC a safer drive. The technology in the Astra includes FlexRide, so that you can change how you drive simply by touching a button. There is a sport, tour and normal mode which are each designed for a different driving scenario.
For your entertainment you can decided between Bluetooth and an integrated system with a phone cradle that will charge your mobile’s battery. You can operate the phone via the steering wheel, faceplate or by voice control, so you don’t have to take your eyes off the road. To keep your music sounding as it should, seven speakers and an 8" subwoofer are available.
