Charles Hurst in Poradown is inviting motoring enthusiasts along to celebrate the launch of the New Astra with an ‘Astra through the Ages’ event.

The event will see all seven Vauxhall Astra models on display - four of which have been donated by local motorists in the area - in the dealership’s newly refurbished showroom on Carn Court Road. Additionally, the team will be showcasing the story of the Astra on a big screen so customers can see how far the vehicle has come from when it was first launched back in 1981.

Those attending the event will be given the opportunity to be among the first to test drive the seventh generation Astra, which is up to 200kg lighter than the outgoing model and significantly more fuel efficient.

Keith Hyde, Retail Operator at Charles Hurst, commented, “The New Astra raises the bar in terms of quality, design and connectivity. With sharp lines, athletic sculpting and the striking curve of the ‘floating’ roof, the design of the New Astra captures the dynamic potential within. The New Astra features a premium interior and distinctive wheels to further enhance its overall appeal. We’re thrilled to bring it to customers in the area, as well as showcase the previous Astra models to show how far the vehicle really has come.”

The event runs from 10am-2pm, with refresments - including candy floss and slush puppies - provided. Visit
