Re-en­try hatch’s top mis­sion

The Weekend Post - Motoring - - COVER STORY -

Ap­ple Car play and An­droid auto and safety fea­tures such as au­to­matic emer­gency brak­ing and lane keep as­sist.

“Cou­pled with a 147Kw 1.6litre tur­bocharged en­gine and six-speed man­ual and op­tional six-speed auto, this new hatch will def­i­nitely turn heads.”

Mr Mau­rice says he ex­pects stock to start ar­riv­ing by the end of De­cem­ber with a spe­cial launch after all mod­els ar­rive.

The new As­tra has some tech­nol­ogy not avail­able on most ri­vals.

Fully loaded a top of the range As­tra now costs more than $40,000 drive-away.

There are three mod­els in the range — R, RS, and RS-V — and a choice of 1.4 or 1.6-litre turbo four-cylin­der en­gines, both with six-speed man­ual or six-speed auto trans­mis­sions.

For now only the cheap­est model is avail­able with an auto.
