What Car? says...
What’s one way to make the most of yet another segment of the motoring market and maximise the profits on your time-proven family hatchback? Easy – stretch the boot, add some clever folding rear seats and throw in a cargo net or two, and you’ve got yourself a popular and trusted estate to send to market. Cue, then, the Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer.
Spun from the well-regarded Astra hatchback, the Sports Tourer follows rivals such as the Ford Focus Estate and Skoda Octavia Estate to offer premium-style practicality and a smooth, comfortable driving experience for purse-friendly costs, combining boot space and gadgets for a jack-of-all-trades family-mobile.
