Opel Astra Sports Tourer wagon to form part of Holden's 24 new cars by 2020

CarAdvice can exclusively reveal that the Opel Astra Sports Tourer will form part of Holden's 24 new cars by 2020 and will wear the Holden Astra wagon, or Holden Astra Tourer badge when it arrives later this year. We understand the two model range will consist of the Holden Astra LS wagon and the Astra LT wagon. While it's based on the Opel Astra hatch design (and not the US Chevrolet Cruze), it won't use the R/RS/RS-V badges currently used on the hatch range.
