Opel / Vauxhall to Officially Reveal New Astra Sports Tourer this Week

An inside source has just tipped us off that General Motors' Opel unit - and consequently Vauxhall- will pull the wraps off the new Astra Sports Tourer and release the first photos and details on the car by the end of this week.

We've already shown you a bunch of revealing spy photos (here) and videos (here) of the upcoming Astra Sports Tourer and from the looks of it, the new model boasts a slicker style with a more raked roofline than today's Astra estate.

Don't expect any surprises under the hood as the sleek station wagon model will be offered more or less with the same diesel and petrol engines found in the five-door hatchback version of the latest Astra.
