Vauxhall Astra GTC Review

Vauxhall Astra GTC Review - The Astra GTC is officially a production reality. Based on last year’s stunning Astra GTC Paris concept car, the production GTC will feature a three-door body with dramatic proportions, yet will be capable of carrying five adults. And it will sport the very best of Vauxhall’s latest technology, as well as unique chassis features.

On a site where we’re today busy discussing the new Jag XF, the Ferrari 550 Maranello and the Koenigsegg Agera R, news about a new three-door hatch from Vauxhall has its work cut out to grab your attention.

But this Astra GTC, with the usual fettling from Vauxhall’s go-faster mechanics at VXR, will form the basis of a 300bhp hot hatch aimed squarely at the impressive Golf R and Audi’s pricey new RS3. And at a much keener price, although all that power will only be going to the front two wheels.

Vauxhall’s new Astra GTC has kept the sharp styling of the GTC Paris concept, judging by these official renderings of the final production car. Order books for the three-door model will open on June 7, when Vauxhall will also confirm full pricing and technical details of the GTC line-up.
