The 2015 Opel Astra made its long-awaited appearance two days ago, enough time for preeminent pixel wizards to work their magic. After impressions of the 2017 Opel Astra OPC and 2016 Opel Astra Sedan, time has come for the all-new Astra Sports Tourer to be masterfully imagined.
Sports Tourer is the German company’s way of labeling its family-oriented wagon body style. Even in Great Britain, where Opel is known as Vauxhall, the estate is labeled wagon as well. But we ain’t here to talk marketing whatnots. We’re in the presence of Remco M and X-Tomi Design’s latest works.

The 2015 Opel Astra K in Sports Tourer format looks as fine as the best longroofs out there, but it goes without saying that it’s the prettiest wagon ever made by Opel in a time. Every individual passionate about the industry is well-aware that the wagon has fallen out of favor in the last two decades or so, being overcomed by the appeal of high-riding crossover SUVs.

In the States only a handful of manufacturers still crank out wagons, which is a darn shame. In contrast to the situation in the U. S. of A., longroofs are still popular in the EU and the C-segment offers plenty of neat wagons. On the aesthetic front, which is your favorite our there?

Our thumbs up go on the 2015 SEAT Leon X-Perience, closely followed by these renderings of the upcoming Opel Astra Sports Tourer. If Mazda were to offer a Mazda3 wagon, that would be in our ranking as well.

After the 2015 Opel Astra K hatchback debuts at Frankfurt in September, the Sports Tourer should arrive in Europe in the first half of 2016, followed by the four-door sedan body style later in 2016.
