New High-Tech Astra Comes Equipped With Apple CarPlay
The all-new Astra was revealed last week at the 2015 International Motor Show in Frankfurt, Germany, giving fans another taste of what is to come in Vauxhall/Holden’s new-model onslaught that will see 24 new models introduced over the next five years.
Destined for a late 2016 release by Vauxhall/Holden in Australia, the new Astra is a clean-sheet design from Opel’s European headquarters in Russelsheim, focusing on style and efficiency whilst following the ‘Sculptural Artistry meets German Precision’ design philosophy introduced on the stunning Monza concept in 2013.
Mark Bernhard, Holden Chairman and Managing Director, said “Astra has made a giant leap forward with a new engine line-up, lightweight design and an advanced infotainment system complete with Apple Car Play and Android Auto compatibility.”
Astra boasts a contemporary cockpit design that is headed by an advanced colour touch screen display housing the latest smartphone integration technology via Apple Car Play and Android Auto.
