Quick Vauxhall Astra Diesels

(Wednesday 1 August 2012)

Vauxhall Astra BiTurbo.

Vauxhall is extending the availability of its most powerful production diesel ever by introducing it to the Astra hatchback and Sports Tourer estate.

The 192bhp two-litre twin-turbo unit, already being used in the Insignia and Astra GTC, gives both new models the rather vaguely described performance figures of 0-60mph in "under eight seconds" and flat out at "in excess of 135mph". More precisely, combined fuel economy and CO2 emissions are quoted as being 55.4mpg and 134g/km respectively.

The BiTurbo models, as they're called, feature 18" alloy wheels, twin exhaust tailpipes, a body styling pack and alloy pedals. Priced from £24,095 for the hatch and £25,110 for the Sports Tourer, they will be available to order from tomorrow (August 2), with customer deliveries starting towards the end of this year.
