Eight different petrol and diesel engines will be available on the Sports Tourer. At the top of the diesel lineup is a 2.0-liter CDTI unit that delivers 158 hp and up to 380Nm of torque when the overboost function is enabled. Transmission options include a six speed manual and a six speed automatic gearbox. Cars with the manual transmission will get an indicator light that inform the driver of the most fuel efficient shift points. Start/Stop will also be used across the range to further aide fuel economy.
Behind the C-pillar, the car has a roofline that is subtly tapered. This allows the car to maintain cargo space of 1,550 liters. With the rear seats down, the load length of the cargo area is a full 1,835mm, longer than the entire wheelbase of the Smart ForTwo. The Astra Sports Tourer is meant to share some of the same design features as the Opel Insignia.
