Higher-value Vauxhall Astra launched
The new trim is available with the 138bhp 1.4-litre petrol for £18,110 and the 123bhp 1.7 CDTi for £19,530.
That makes the new trim £115 more expensive than the cheapest Exclusive version with the diesel, but £40 cheaper with the petrol.
Despite being close on price, ES Tech beats Exclusiv specification with the addition of extras including sat-nav and Bluetooth, options that would otherwise add £1050 to the price of the car.
Other features include a digital radio, 17-inch alloy wheels, air-conditioning, curtain airbags, stability control, cruise control and steering-wheel-mounted stereo controls.
