The Vauxhall GTC’s dynamic coupé styling is immediately appealing. The bold shoulder line creates a strong, dynamic impression, while the signature chrome bar with aerodynamic front bumper and trapezoid grille is underlined by the signature daytime running lights and wrap-around headlights.
Impressive looks demand an impressive set of wheels and GTC doesn’t disappoint. Imposing 18-inch alloys are standard issue and stunning 20-inch designs top the options list.
VXR styling products allow you to connect with the performance and excitement at the heart of the VXR brand. Taking that same ethos as our brief we have created a definitive line-up of VXR styling products that will add a degree of individuality to SRi models. The pack is available as a factory-fit option or as separate accessories fitted by your Vauxhall retailer.
The GTC’s pure and overtly sporting exterior receives a powerful echo throughout the interior’s strong lines, with defined textures, unique GTC sports detailing and unashamedly proud contours. Premium quality design cues combine with advanced features to create a sporty yet spacious driving environment guaranteed to invigorate your whole driving experience.
GTC’s interior takes its cue from the athletic lines of the body – enhanced by an equally dynamic choice of fabrics, trims and colours.
Poised and precise, the GTC chassis establishes the agile, spirited feel that characterises the car as a whole. The suspension has been tuned to suit the specific demands of UK road surfaces, using specialist input from renowned chassis experts.
With power comes responsibility - so GTC features Vauxhall’s cutting-edge start/stop fuel-saving and emissions-reducing technology. The innovative system switches the engine off when you stop at the lights or in traffic, then restarts it automatically when the clutch is depressed. This is fitted to all manual GTC models.
The new 1.6CDTi 110PS and 136PS ecoFLEX ‘Whisper diesel’ units boast among the lowest vehicle CO2 emissions in their class.
GTC drivers can now choose from six powerful yet efficient turbo-charged engines – each matched to a slick six-speed transmission or – on selected power units – a six-speed automatic.
With a mere touch of a button, this optional feature allows you to change the GTC’s whole driving dynamics – from ‘Sport’ to ‘Tour’ and back again. Using Continuous Damping Control technology, FlexRide automatically adjusts the dampers for excellent grip. In ‘Tour’ mode, it chooses the best settings for gentler straight-line driving. Switch to ‘Sport’ mode and it instantly sharpens the response of the speed-sensitive steering, accelerator and automatic transmission (if fitted). It also changes the colour of the ambient instrument lighting – from a cool white to a more dynamic red effect.
Part of our optional Perimeter Protection, this ultrasonic-based system helps prevent a potential collision with a neighbouring vehicle. It continuously screens the blind-spots on both sides of your car and warns you if your indicator suggests you’re about to move into a lane where another car is detected.
Lane-departure warning keeps you safe by using GTC’s front camera system to recognise lane boundaries. It sounds a warning if your vehicle leaves its lane unintentionally (i.e. without you indicating). The camera also helps check your speed by reading speed signs. As part of our Driving Assistance Pack, forward- collision alert (FCA) constantly displays the distance to the vehicle in front of you, helping you keep a safe distance. It also warns you if you approach a slower-moving vehicle too fast.
Parallel parking will never be the same again. This smart option not only tells you when you drive by a suitably-sized parking space, but also – while you’re parking – shows you how far to turn the steering wheel and how much you can manoeuvre without an unwanted bump.
The GTC features a new version of our adaptive forward lighting (AFL) system. The smart AFL headlights change their pattern to suit your environment and the weather. Sensing where you need light most, they can even see round corners. And if a vehicle is coming the other way, they automatically dip.
Standard on SRi models, the CD 600 IntelliLink system raises the bar for in-car entertainment units in this class. Highlights include seamlessly integrating your smartphone with IntelliLink technology and displaying the most important functions on the high-definition seven-inch screen, a CD/MP3 CD player, digital radio, AM/FM stereo radio with 36 station presets, USB connection and aux-in socket, six premium speakers and a seven-band graphic equaliser.
This premium sound system uses seven 45W direct channels to drive seven premium speakers and an 8-inch subwoofer. The audio signal is fine-tuned with digital sound processing (DSP) for accurate response, bringing you outstanding sound quality at all times.
Stay in touch with Bluetooth® connection* available with each of the audio units at extra cost. You can control the system either from your steering wheel or via voice control**.
Enjoy the very latest in sat- nav technology. Our seven-inch colour screen gives you rapid access to map data and points of interest, keeping you informed and on the move. Optional at extra cost.
Vauxhall’s OnStar offers GTC owners many superb services, including in-car access to a trained advisor 24/7 and 365 days a year, and emergency assistance. You can also take advantage of a 4G in-car wi-fi hotspot that can connect up to seven devices simultaneously.
