Daytime running lights
As part of the optional Premium Forward Lighting Pack, the intelligent AFL+ headlight comes with energy-efficient LEDs making your car more visible to other drivers and pedestrians.
Inside the Astra, sweeping lines and the wraparound instrument panel create a feeling of roominess. The main surfaces are textured with soft-touch material and high-quality grains, with chrome accents adding a sharp, modern edge. As you’d expect in a Vauxhall, control elements like the buttons on the centre stack have been placed for optimal driver access.
Sports seats are standard on Elite and optional on other selected models. These supportive and comfortable seats adjust to suit the driver’s posture by allowing fine-tuning of the lumbar support and extending the seat cushion. This provides you with upper-body and leg support where it is needed most. These seats have won the coveted Aktion Gesunder Rücken (AGR – Campaign for Healthier Backs) seal of approval for helping to prevent back problems often suffered by some car users.
The new Astra’s trims have been selected for their premium feel, comfort and quality appearance. Available in hardwearing fabric or perforated leather, they complement new Astra’s exterior paint finishes and the textures, colour and style of the new fascia, door panels and other elements of the interior detailing.
Adaptive Forward Lighting
Adaptive Forward Lighting (AFL) is the most advanced headlight system in the compact car segment and it comes as standard on the new Astra. AFL will automatically select from nine varying light functions to provide the optimum illumination for each driving situation. So for example whilst you are driving through curves and bends, AFL will ensure you do not dazzle other drivers without touching traditional high-beam switches.
You can change the driving feel to match your mood, if you choose a New Astra with FlexRide. Select the Sport mode for a more responsive and dynamic drive, or select Tour mode for a more relaxed and smoother ride.
Side blind-spot alert
As part of the optional Perimeter Protection Pack, Side Blind-Spot Alert is an ultrasonic-based system helping to prevent potential collisions with vehicles adjacent to your own. The system continuously screens the blind spots on both sides of your car, when you begin indicating toward these blind spots you will be alerted should a car be present.
Using the charcoal-filtered Electronic Climate Control (ECC), both of the front-seat occupants in the new Astra can choose their preferred temperature separately. Heating and cooling performance is improved by controlled, partial air-recirculation.
The new Astra line-up provides a wide range of state-of-the-art electronic driver aids designed to make driving a whole lot safer and easier. Some Using advanced technology to scan the road ahead, some of these options use our cutting-edge front-camera system.
