A Closer Look at the New Vauxhall Astra and Grandland GSe Models

Launching this year in 2023, the ‘sportified’ versions of two iconic Vauxhall models will soon be available to order.

Vauxhall’s new GSe range promises to take some well-known favourites to the next level, with upgraded sporty technology, improved handling, and higher performance.

GSe stands for Grand Sport Electric, showing the sub-brand’s focus on creating a more refined motoring experience for drivers. For a fun, exhilarating drive.

The range sees a continuation of the brand’s Bold & Pure design, with driver-focused chassis set-ups, and high-performance electric engines.

With the Vauxhall Astra and Grandland given the GSe treatment, let’s see what the revamped models could have to offer this year.

All-New Vauxhall Astra GSe

With an advanced plug-in hybrid powertrain, the new Vauxhall Astra GSe is sure to impress. This sees a turbo engine combined with an electric motor to deliver a combined output of 225PS, with rapid acceleration and instant torque.

The new powertrain will enable the Vauxhall Astra GSe to cover all bases, delivering on range, power, and efficiency. Experience incredible responsiveness thanks to plug-in hybrid power and the electrified 8-speed automatic transmission, producing 360Nm torque.

With the Vauxhall Astra GSe, you’ll also experience easier handling with a unique GSe suspension making the Astra more agile. Lowered by 10mm, it’s the little details such as these that add up to create a truly sporty, exciting drive.

Other upgrades include improved steering with unique springs and oil filled dampers fitted on the front and rear, as well as Koni branded FSD (Frequency Selective Damping) to improve performance.

When it comes to style, the Vauxhall Astra GSe promises no less than the latest and greatest. Highlights include a unique lower grille for a distinctive look, lightweight 18” two-tone diamond cut alloy wheels, and ergonomic sports front seats in jet black Alcantara.

The Vauxhall Astra GSe model brings with it several other advanced features over GS models, including IntelliLux adaptive LED pixel headlights, Intelli-HUD (Head-Up Display), wireless onboard charging, heated front seats, and exclusive ESP settings.

Vauxhall Grandland GSe

The Vauxhall Grandland has also been given the GSe makeover for 2023, bringing with it a whole new driving experience with hybrid power.

Like the Astra GSe, the new Grandland combines a turbo-charged engine with electric motors, delivering 300PS and an impressive 520Nm torque for a nippier, more responsive drive from the moment you pull away.

With an 8-speed e-AT8 automatic gearbox, experience smoother handling like never before, with the hard work taken care of for you.

A unique GSe suspension set up also brings you greater control and handling on the road, along with improved steering featuring unique springs and oil filled dampers to guide you along smoothly.

Likewise, the new Grandland GSe also features Koni branded FSD dampers to improve both range and performance.

Sophisticated and stylish, the Grandland GSe offers dynamic styling details such as unique, lightweight 17” alloy wheels – diamond-cut with a two-tone finish. A sporty rear diffuser in high-gloss black also adds to the look, and ergonomic AGR-certified sports front seats in jet-black Alcantara provide comfort.

Packed with the latest technology, the sportified hybrid SUV offers IntelliLux adaptive LED pixel headlights to guide the way, a 360-degree panoramic parking camera and wireless onboard charging.

You can also enjoy heated front seats for the chillier journeys and make a fun style statement with exclusive GSe front and rear bumpers.
