    2016 Opel Astra Sports Tourer first images and details are in

    After showing the new Astra K hatchback back in June, now time has come for Opel to reveal the more practical Sports Tourer variant.

    The designed has obviously been carried over from the hatchback, but with an elongated rear end to boost cargo capacity which has risen by 80 liters compared to the old model. With the rear seats folded down, the new Astra wagon can carry up to 1,630 liters even though the car's dimensions have remained just about the same as the previous model. Aside from gaining a more spacious trunk, the Astra Sports Tourer also offers an extra 26 mm of front headroom and 28 mm of rear headroom.

    I am glad they kept the rear roof line up and did NOT bring it down like a LOT of SUVs have especially the "coupe" version SUVs

    it may be better in the flesh but first impressions are Golf like in their lack of inspiration. It does look tidy though. European engine choices are Euro-peon.

    If you click on the link for the additional pictures, while I like the "floating roof" iteration on the wagon....in some pictures it makes it look like a minivan....but in other news, these variants of the Astra need to be in Buick dealerships tomorrow, I'm convinced the little portion of "body" above the grill but below the cut line of the hood was designed specifically to allow for a taller waterfall grill to be snapped in to these.

    I like hatchbacks, but probably I won't buy one because the sedan version is always cheaper

    I love that chrome strip on the wagon's roof! To me that's a little flourish very reminiscent of '50s styling and I really really like it!
    This would make a great little Buick wagon.

    Opel sure is rolling out hugely improved products. Hopefully increases in sales and market share will follow, and eventually even profit.

    More cargo room, more headroom, looks good. I'd like to see a Cruze wagon something like this. But if it has to be a Buick so be it.

    With Buick supposedly aligning more closely with Opel in their product range it would be nice to see some of these in the US. I really like that wagon and its roofline detail.
