Leading car dealer group Drive Motor Retail is offering VIP experiences to customers interested in the all-new Vauxhall Astra at its Hartlepool dealership.

Drive is inviting prospective customers to an exclusive opportunity to view the all-new eighth generation of the Astra first-hand, which marks the next step in Vauxhall’s electrification journey.

The Astra VIP Experience Tour will take place at the Hartlepool dealership on Burn Road on 23 May, where a professional product specialist will provide customers with an informative, personal walk around showcasing the features of the all-new Astra, followed by a test drive. Customers can book their own exclusive time slot.

The all-new Astra is available as a plug-in hybrid for the first time and features new technology such as a digital driver’s display and 360-degree camera, which are firsts for the model.

Joe Palmer, General Manager at Drive Hartlepool said: “The all-new Astra is a huge step forward for Vauxhall and as the leading Vauxhall supplier in the Hartlepool area, we are very excited about showcasing it to our customers.

“For anyone who owns a current-generation Astra or is interested in a vehicle in this segment, the VIP Experience Tour is a fantastic opportunity to get an insight into this new model and discover whether it is suitable to be your next car.”
