Remember that retro-looking ElektroMOD we mentioned a few weeks ago? Well, here’s a few shots of the new fully charged next-generation Vauxhall Astra sporting its VIZORFACE…
Vauxhall released a few teaser images of its All-New Astra – the first generation of the British brand’s compact car to be electrified. The images reveal the extreme precision and high attention to detail of the eagerly awaited all-new model, which newly interprets the brand’s pure and bold design philosophy and shows the way forward for its upcoming passenger cars.
Paul Willcox, Managing Director, Vauxhall, said:
“The All-New Astra will open an exciting new chapter in the 41-year history of our popular compact model. We are confident that the next generation Vauxhall Astra will make a powerful impression and attract new customers to the brand, especially now Astra will be electrified for the first time.”
The new Astra will incorporate VIZOR which we first spotted on the All-New Mokka, Crossland models and that retro-looking ElektroMOD being showcased in Rüsselsheim. The face of the brand stretches across the front, seamlessly integrating technologies such as the ultra-slim IntelliLux LED® headlamps that will once again bring cutting-edge innovation to the compact market segment. At the rear, the Astra nameplate is centrally placed on the sheer, taut surface of the tailgate.
The same clean and slick engineering precision applies throughout the interior with a ‘next-generation Pure Panel’ digital cockpit delivering widescreen detoxed information in a horizontal driver-oriented format. Take a breath… there’s some ‘physical’ controls added too in the form of ‘finely crafted keys’ you might want to flick up and down whilst dazzling your nosey neighbours with that high-tech main function. Newly designed steering wheel, ergonomic front seats, and sensuous materials are also on offer to embellish that all-important user experience we all crave in a new car.
More information will follow on Vauxhall’s automotive electrifying assault led by British Design Vice-President Mark Adams. The next-generation Astra will be available as a dynamic five-door hatchback and versatile Sports Tourer estate, bolstering the brand’s entire product portfolio.
So, how does it look?
