Hello there, ordered a new Astra Sports Tourer GS Line in early March - my first Vauxhall. Really looking forward to getting it although I'm not sure when that will be yet.
Hope anyone else who's ordered one is waiting with baited breath like me.

Cheers,
Kwozzii

Hi there, I've ordered the new Astra Sports Tourer GS Line PHEV two weeks ago as my current lease contract (Peugeot 3008) is ending. I don't have an estimative delivering date yet but looking forward. They promised to keep me up-to-date as soon as the factory comes back with an estimative delivering date. I drove the previous model (the hatchback on diesel) for one year as a pre-lease car back on 2017 and was really pleased.

Hi there! I'm eagerly anticipating the delivery of my Astra too! I went for the GS Line Petrol hatch in the standard white which I settled on after seeing the new Grandland in the showroom. Ordered the first week of March and I was given an approximate date of sometime in June - given the state of the world I'm not taking that for granted but as I've not heard any different yet, I'm keeping my fingers crossed! Bit concerned I'm still unable to test drive one, I must enquire with my dealer about when they might finally get a demonstrator in.

I have noticed in the updated brochure (as it's not longer listed in there) and from some readings on a German Opel forum, that there may be shortages in the Pure Panel Pro and that they're not offering it for the foreseeable. I'll be interested to know what that means for orders before the brochure changed and what mine will come with... it's not a deal breaker for me though it would be a shame. At least the screen sizes remain the same despite the bezels, unlike an A Class for example!

Hey! I ordered Astra Ultimate around 22nd of Feb and was given an estimated delivery of around start of June, with build week being middle of May. Not really thinking this is going to happen though!

Hey all,

Also looking forward to my delivery! I ordered my GS Petrol 130hp on the 27th November and haven’t heard much at all! Initial sales guy gave me march as a worst case scenario (I’m not naive enough to have thought that was happening!). Has anyone had a build date confirmed at all?

Thanks,

Just been out for a test drive in 1.2 petrol automatic Ultimate trim and I've gotta say - I really liked it. Same engine/transmission as I've got in my 2020 Peugeot 2008 but obviously a different beast to drive. Even more looking forward to getting my GS-Line Sports Tourer now, which they reckon will be September / October time......

Finally had my test drive today in the 1.6 hybrid... a very lovely car which I kind of wish I'd gone for over the petrol manual... maybe next time. Disappointing to be told my expected delivery date is now looking like the middle of August, but hey ho, it'll come when it comes. May as well push it until September for the 72 plates!

Received an email this morning advising me of a provisional delivery date of 26/09. Bit frustrating to wait longer but I'll be glad to have a 72 reg
