Opel Astra Sports Tourer GSe Now on Sale

After the Grandland GSe1 and Astra GSe2, the third member of the exquisite group, the new Opel Astra Sports Tourer GSe, can now also be ordered. And like its GSe siblings, the “Grand Sport electric” estate also lives up to its name. The Astra Sports Tourer GSe arouses emotions with dynamic driving characteristics, a sporty chassis, locally emission-free plug-in hybrid drive and its characteristic GSe design without compromising on everyday usability. This is ensured by the typical estate virtues of the compact class bestseller, such as the boot with a loading volume of up to 1,553 litres. The new Astra Sports Tourer GSe, which comes with numerous GSe extras and is available at prices starting at € 47,660 (RRP in Germany incl. VAT), combines the best of multiple worlds: pure dynamics and responsible driving please with a high level of everyday use.

The powerful drive and the unique chassis form the basis for the GSe-specific driving experience. The new Astra Sports Tourer GSe delivers a superior system output of 165 kW/225 hp – the 1.6 litre four-cylinder delivers 133 kW/180 hp, the electric motor contributes up to 81.2 kW/110 hp – and maximum torque of a powerful 360 Nm (fuel consumption according to WLTP3: 1.2-1.1 l/100 km, CO2 emissions 26-25 g/km; each combined). The top-of-the-line estate accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 7.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of 235 km/h (135 km/h purely electrically). And the 12.4 kWh lithium-ion battery ensures that the plug-in hybrid can cover up to 63 kilometres locally emission-free according to WLTP4 (EAER City according to WLTP4: 66-71 km).

2022 Opel Astra Hybrid

The specially calibrated chassis, which is 10 millimetres lower, also promises dynamic driving pleasure. Compared to the “normal” variants of the “Golden Steering Wheel 2022”5 winner, the GSe is designed to be even more agile and precise. The special springs and oil-pressure shock absorbers of the front and rear wheel suspension enable not only dynamic but also comfortable driving. The so-called KONI FSD (Frequency Selective Damping) technology is responsible for this: The dampers align the respectively required damping force with the movement frequency of the vehicle. In this way, different damping characteristics can be achieved for comfortable gliding at high frequencies and for a sporty, ambitious driving style with more direct road contact at low frequencies. The ESP settings on the GSe follow this lead: the electronic stability program intervenes later, so that GSe drivers can drive even more dynamically. The Astra Sports Tourer GSe offers exceptional stability and directional stability when cornering, when braking and – like every Opel – at high speeds on the “Autobahn”. The steering is also sporty tuned specifically for the GSe. It also reacts even more immediately and directly to any command from the driver.
