Can I use the tow bar from an Astra hatchback on an Astra estate?

Will a tow bar from a 2004 5 door Vauxhall Astra fit a 2007 Astra estate?

It is difficult to say if the tow bar from an Astra hatchback would fit an Astra estate without physically comparing the mounting points, but given the two Astras are the same generation we would expect this to be possible. It is unlikely that Vauxhall would produce two different tow bars for one vehicle, but it also depends if the tow bar is a Vauxhall-approved accessory or an aftermarket item.
