The GTC is an exciting sports-focused coupé built on the platform of the ever-popular Astra family car, and is full of striking details and features to give an exciting ride each and every time. Four different trims are available to buyers - GTC Sport, Limited Edition, SRi and BiTurbo.
Sculpted with ground-hugging lines accentuated by 18" alloy wheels, the GTC's lithe frame indicates its pace and agility. The precision and flexibility of the sports chassis, as well as the smooth and streamlined design which removes wind lag and makes the handling even more aerodynamic and responsive.
Inside the GTC's cabin, strong lines and defined textures complement the smooth contours of the bodywork. The highest quality materials have been used to form the upholstery and interior highlights, and the cabin is much more spacious than one would guess from the compact looks of the exterior. Those who wish to explore the capabilities of the GTC can opt for the FlexRide chassis settings, which gives options of 'Sport' and 'Tour'. These sharpen the response of the speed-sensitive steering and use Continuous Damping Control technology to provide a thrilling drive experience.
Owners have the choice of three petrol and two diesel engines if they choose the Astra GTC. The 1.6 litre, 200PS engine can achieve an impressive 0-62mph acceleration figure of 8.3 seconds, and a hypothetical top speed of 137mph. Drivers in search of minimal running costs, however, may be better served by the 1.6 litre, 110PS CDTi diesel, for which combined fuel consumption is 72.4mpg, and CO2 emissions 104g/km.
Vauxhall has made sure that the GTC is safe as well as performance-focused, with front, side and curtain airbags provided as standard, working alongside the reinforced passenger safety cell with pre-defined deformation zones. Additional systems that can be installed include Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), and Forward Collision Alert (FCA).
