For The Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer looks great inside and out, and its cabin is built from high-quality plastics. It’s practical, too, and the ride is very comfortable.

Against It’s expensive to buy and lease, and doesn’t hold its value well. The steering is vague.

The classy, spacious cabin is a real highlight, but the Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer falls short of the best small family estates in key areas.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

Owning an Astra Sports Tourer shouldn't cost you the earth. Yes, list prices are high, but dealers will offer big discounts to prise business away from their competitors, and you'll get even larger savings from online brokers.

Fuel consumption figures are competitive for the class, and reasonable CO2 emissions (especially on Ecoflex models) mean that tax bills won't be too steep for company car drivers. Vauxhall's boffins have done lots of work to make low-speed crash damage simpler and cheaper to repair, and that also drives down insurance costs.

If you're wondering which Astra you should pick, we’d point you towards the 1.6 CDTi 110 Ecoflex Tech Line. It provides lots of luxury kit, decent performance and low emissions.
