2017 Holden Astra sedan pricing and features

The all-new Holden Astra sedan will arrive in showrooms on July 1 with a $20,490 entry level price tag that’s $1000 cheaper than its hatchback sibling.

The Korean-built Chevrolet Cruze-based sedan comes in three main variants; LS, LT and LTZ that generally line up in terms of equipment levels with the Euro-built hatch’s R, RS and RS-V grades.

But beyond sharing the same Delta II platform that’s about all the duo have in common, with each having their own unique exterior styling and interior features right down to the steering wheel and air vents.

The sedan will also lack the hatch’s auto emergency braking and 147kW 1.6-litre turbo engine option, with the less-powerful but capable 110kW 1.4-litre turbo powering the entire range.

Where the sedan has an apparent edge over the five door is further development by Holden’s engineering group which saw steering, suspension and chassis control tuned to local conditions at the Lang Lang proving ground.

The entry level LS sedan comes with a six-speed manual transmission as standard or a six-speed auto for an extra $1000, with a reversing camera, rear parking sensors, auto headlights, 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, 16-inch alloy wheels and cruise control rounding out the rest of the standard equipment list.

The auto-only LS+ [$22,740] includes a driver assistance pack with ‘Holden Eye’ camera-based active safety features including lane keep assist, forward distance indicator and forward collision alert

Unlike the mid-range RS hatch, the LT doesn’t come with a manual option, but brings plenty of additional features over the LS+ for its $25,790 price tag including blind-spot alert, auto parking, rain-sensing wipers, 8-inch touchscreen, satellite navigation, digital radio, push button start and remote start.

For $29,790, the Astra LTZ adds an electric sunroof, heated leather appointed seats, climate control and 18-inch alloys, making it generously equipped for the sub-$30,000 retail price.
