Class-leading sports suspension.
Front-wheel drive cars with powerful engines place excessive demands on conventional McPherson strut front suspension systems. Under heavy acceleration – especially in tight bends – front traction is compromised, resulting in torque steer which can affect the car’s stability. The compact HiPerStrut (High Performance Strut) system – already seen in Insignia VXR – isolates the steering from the effects of engine torque, boosting steering precision and grip. It also improves handling and enhances ride quality. The compact Watt’s link rear suspension delivers the stability benefits of multi-link systems without their weight and space penalties.
Optional FlexRide chassis settings.
With a mere touch of a button, this optional feature allows you to change the Astra GTC’s whole driving dynamics – from ‘Sport’ to ‘Tour’ and back again. Using Continuous Damping Control technology, FlexRide automatically adjusts the dampers for excellent grip. In ‘Tour’ mode, it chooses the best settings for gentler straight-line driving. Switch to ‘Sport’ mode and it instantly sharpens the response of the speed-sensitive steering, accelerator and automatic transmission (if fitted). It also changes the colour of the ambient instrument lighting – from a cool white to a more dynamic red effect.
Intelligent Light Ranging (ILR).
Available as part of the Driving Assistance Pack when AFL is also specified, ILR extends the range of both headlights up to about 350 metres at speeds over 30mph. ILR also automatically adjusts the spread to avoid dazzling oncoming drivers. And if you’re approaching an upward gradient, it’ll even raise the beam to give you a better view of the road.
