Just like the hatchback version, the 2020 Vauxhall Astra Estate received a mid-cycle facelift approximately four years after its original launch.
The seventh generation of the Vauxhall Astra has been slightly revamped from a visual standpoint so the station wagon version has received the same updates, including an all-new engine range. With reduced CO2 figures and improved fuel economy, the refreshed Astra Estate has improved in almost all areas.

Despite looking almost identical to its predecessor, the new exterior has been developed in the wind tunnel, thus contributing to a drag coefficient of just 0.25, which even betters the hatchback version and is a record in the segment. Just like the hatchback, the new Astra Estate gets new turbocharged gasoline and diesel engines. Three-cylinder turbocharged gasoline powerplants are available with both 1.2 and 1.4-liter displacements, while the power outputs range from 110 to 145 horsepower. The 1.5-liter, three-cylinder diesel offers between 105 and 122 horsepower.

The Astra Sports Tourer was one of the most iconic vehicles in the Opel range.
It was unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.
Whether it was known as the Caravan or, more recently, the Sports Tourer, it was the classic station wagon for half of Europe and the UK.

The hardest job for Vauxhall was to build a car with almost the same length as the outgoing generation, but bigger inside. After certain modifications, the Astra Sports Tourer gained a lot of trunk space, reaching a total of 1630 liters (57.3 cu-ft) with the rear seats folded down. With all the seats in the upright position, the trunk space was a decent 540 liters (19 cu-ft).

A very important modification was for the rear occupants, where they gained 28 mm (1.1 in) in legroom and 26 mm (1 in) in headroom. One of the biggest achievements for the bodywork was to cut down the weight. By working on new components, new materials and also new engines, Opel succeeded to reduce the model’s weight compared to the generation it replaces with 150 kg (330 lbs).

The base engine was a turbocharged gasoline 1.0-liter three-cylinder with 105 hp. It was available with an Easytronic transmission for best fuel consumption results and featured a combined 4.2 liter/100 km (56 mpg). The most powerful unit offered was a gasoline 1.6-liter direct-injected, which developed 200 hp.

For the diesel units, Vauxhall offered a brand new 1.6-liter bi-turbo engine, which had the same characteristics as an older 2.0 turbodiesel powerplant, offering 160 hp and 350 Nm, but it was cleaner from the emissions point of view.

The British brother of the European Opel Astra J received the same facelift as its sibling in 2012.
On the outside, some changes were made to the front end. There is more chrome on the grille and a redesigned bumper. In the rear, also, more chrome appeared and the overall look is more stylish.

The biggest changes can be found under the hood, though. There are still 23 engines versions available, as before the facelift, but the car has more power. The base model is a 1.4-liter gasoline with 100 hp, compared to the 87 hp of its predecessor. But if before facelift the top gasoline engine was a 2.0-liter OPC version with 280 hp, that was cut out and the top version for the Astra J facelift had a 1.6-liter turbo with 180 hp. For the diesel range, the base is the 1.3-liter CDTI from Fiat with 95 hp while the top is a punchy 2.0 bi-turbo with 195 hp and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque.

The interior of the Astra J facelift has three cupholders for the front passengers but the problems regarding the interior materials remained. It still has the same cheap plastic buttons. Overall, the facelift brought a better vehicle to look at, though, with nicer light-alloy wheels in the options list and few more colors to satisfy customers’ taste.

The 2010 Vauxhall Astra station-wagon lost the usual “Caravan” name given by its manufacturer for such type of bodyworks and it was switched toward Sports Tourer name, the same as its bigger brother, Insignia Sports Tourer.
The Sports Tourer was added to the Astra lineup models to enhance its UK’s market share in the compact segment. While it shared the same wheelbase and most of the parts with the Astra hatch, the suspension featured key dynamic elements tuned for the UK roads.

The front part remained the same up to the B-pillar, but the trunk area was changed to host up to 500 liters (17.65 cu-ft) of space. The Vauxhall’s design team increased the total load length of the vehicle by 28 mm (1.1”) up to 1835 mm (72.2”). The interior side panels were flat, to optimize the load space. The rear seats featured fitted as standard or as an option (depending on the trim level) a 60:40 split-fold system and it could increase the load volume up to 1550 liters (54.4 cu-ft).

Depending on the trim-level and options, the Astra Sports Tourer featured a standard radio-CD player with a USB/AUX-in connection, while a CD500 Navi system offered a 7” color monitor with 1Gb internal flash memory for maps. For sound enhancement, an Infinity premium audio was offered, with 7 high-quality speakers and a sub-woofer.

The Astra boasted a seven engine lineup in its range. It started with a naturally aspirated 1.4-liter and went up to a 2.0 turbodiesel that offered 160 hp.

Vauxhall Astra H, Mk5, was one of the best selling cars in its segment in the U.K. and it was offered with a choice of bodyworks with two, three, or five doors, coupe, convertible, hatchback, and coupe.

The Astra station-wagon was the typical British car for a family that needed a hassle-free car, with enough features for all, enough room for trips over the weekend, and shape to fit them all. It wasn’t that passionate as the Astra GTC or just a tool as the Astra hatchback. But it had everything a driver needed and a family desired. It was priced lower or similar to its competitors.

The station-wagon featured the same front fascia up to the B-pillars with the 5-door hatchback version. A V-shaped grille with the classic Vauxhall badge in the middle of a chromed bar and a plastic bumper extended to cover the front radiators covered the front area. The overall design was a mix between a cubist style and a rounded style. The tailgate was wide and tall, providing easy access to the loading area.

Inside, the straight and simple dashboard featured an option for an on-board computer, located in the middle of the front area. The controls for the information and entertainment center was located on the center stack, via a rotary knob and a few buttons. The rear split-backseat in 60/40 proportions allowed an extended trunk volume of up to 1550 liters (54.7 cu-ft), which was among the best in its segment.

The Astra was offered with a wide choice of gasoline and diesel engines. The most attractive was the 1.9-liter diesel, which offered enough grunt and great fuel-efficiency. With a standard, 5- or 6-speed, gearbox, and an option for a 6-speed auto, the Vauxhall Astra H hatchback scored some of the highest sales from its segment in the U.K.
