The next Vauxhall Astra is expected to go on sale in 2021 with underpinnings borrowed from Peugeot and Citroen models. Previewed by our exclusive images, the 2021 Astra is set to get rakish styling to make it stand out against its rivals, which will include the Volkswagen Golf, Ford Focus and Honda Civic.

When the next-generation Astra appears in around two years’ time, it will arrive with a swooping roofline and coupe-esque design features. Unlike many new cars, it won’t try to look like a pseudo-SUV with higher ground clearance and plastic body cladding. LED headlights are expected to be standard, and you should be able to personalise the car with options like a contrasting roof.

While it will share a platform and engines with the Peugeot 308, Vauxhall boss Stephen Norman told our sister site Auto Express that the new Astra will be “something much more” than just a rebadged 308. Engines will be mostly carried over from the recently facelifted current model, including a 1.2-litre petrol engine and a low-emission 1.5-litre diesel.

Just like the Vauxhall Grandland X SUV, a plug-in hybrid version of the new Astra will be offered. Called the Hybrid4, it’ll have a 196bhp petrol engine and two electric motors, with a total output of 296bhp and all-wheel drive. The Hybrid4 will be badged as a VXR model, Vauxhall’s performance moniker, and it’ll have the acceleration and handling to suit the VXR badge. Zero-to-62mph will take around six seconds, which is similar to the Honda Civic Type R, Renault Megane RS and Hyundai i30 N. With a fully topped up battery, you’ll be able to travel around 30 miles on electric power.

Vauxhall Grandland X Hybrid4 2020 review

  Vauxhall Grandland X Hybrid4 2020 review The first PHEV to wear the Griffin badge delivers hot hatch pace - but can it match premium competition for ride refinement and interior finish?Most driving can be done in Hybrid mode, which swaps between the combustion engine and electric motors on the fly and sends power through an eight-speed, wet clutch transmission, rather than the torque convertor automatic found on PSA’s petrol and diesel models. It’s a smooth system, transitioning between petrol and electric power without the noticeable lurch seen on some rival hybrids. The petrol engine stays largely isolated from the cabin when it does cut in, as revs build to noticeable but unobtrusive levels.

Inside, the Astra will be stuffed with the latest technology in an attempt to take on the latest Golf. A host of online features will be offered, probably wrapped up in a Vauxhall smartphone app, while some models will also get wireless phone charging, adaptive cruise control and lane keep assist. It’s likely that all cars will get a digital instrument cluster, with different graphics to the Peugeot, Citroen and DS versions.

Despite the coupe-like styling, the new Vauxhall Astra will still need to be practical if it’s going to be a real rival to the many other competent family hatchbacks. The rear seats are likely to be mounted low to ensure there’s still plenty of headroom, and the boot will have a capacity of at least 380 litres.
