What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For A comfortable and cheap way to transport a reasonable amount of gear

Against It's tight in the cabin and all models lack basic safety kit

Verdict A cost-effective, if unexciting, way to move your bits and bobs here and there

Go for… 1.6 16v Club

Avoid… 1.7 TD and 2.0 Di

Vauxhall Astra Estate
