New Cars for 2011
The new Vauxhall Astra GTC order books opened at Vauxhall retailers today.
The car is closely based on last year’s GTC Paris concept. The new Vauxhall Astra GTC is priced from£18,495 in the UK market – the biggest in Europe for this model.
The new Vauxhall Astra GTC adopts the front suspension from the Insignia VXR, featuring Vauxhall’s HiPerStrut (High Performance Strut), combined with the clever Watt’s link rear axle for unmatched stability and handling precision, the company said.
Duncan Aldred, Vauxhall’s managing director, said: “The GTC is a high-profile addition to the Astra range and one that’s sure to appeal to anyone who loves cars and driving.
“Better still, its chassis has been fine-tuned by Vauxhall Engineering Centre in the UK, reflecting the importance of our Millbrook-based operation, and also the fact that the UK will be the dominant market for GTC when it arrives in showrooms later this year.”
The new Vauxhall Astra GTC will have its world premiere at next month’s Goodwood Festival of Speed 1-3 July.
