New Vauxhall Astra with new 1.6 litre engine

Priced from £20,995

The new Vauxhall Astra is now available with a powerful new 1.6 litre direct injection petrol engine which brings sector leading refinement to the  Vauxhall Astra GTC range. It is the only unit in its class to feature twin balancer shafts for smooth running, while a host of sound engineering measures have been made for low noise, vibration and harshness (NVH). Peak power and torque are increased by up to thirty per cent over the previous 1.6-litre turbo model, yet fuel consumption of a fantastic 51mpg combined and emissions of 154g/km have meant a thirteen per cent improvement in efficiency. This engine is capable of 0-60 mph in 7.3 seconds and can go on to a top speed of 143mph.

Vauxhall have also introduced the innovative Intellilink infotainment system to the  Vauxhall Astra GTC range. Intuitive and user-friendly, the system features satellite navigation, voice control, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, picture viewer and Gracenote album art, all via its high-resolution 7-inch touchscreen display. Stuart Harris, Vauxhall’s Head of Carline Brand said “we’ve strengthened our Astra GTC offering with a strong and powerful 1.6-litre petrol engine and the cutting-edge Intellilink infotainment system. Vauxhall is really throwing down the gauntlet to UK coupe sector rivals with these enhancements to our Astra GTC range.”
