See new Astra - and classic Vauxhalls
* Apply to join our Astra preview * Tell us what you think of the car * Limited places so apply now...
What Car? is inviting readers to a once-in-a-lifetime preview of the new Astra at Vauxhall's Heritage Centre in Bedfordshire.
The Astra goes on sale in December, costs from 15,675, and is gunning hard for the Ford Focus and the rest of the small family car class.
As well as decent dynamics and a wide range of engines, Vauxhall has given the Astra a striking interior, but not, it says, at the expense of practicality.
Give us your verdict on the new Astra
Come along to our Reader Test Team event to decide for yourself whether you'd be at home in the car and whether you'd like to see it on your driveway.
We're limited to six places at the event, which takes place at the Luton Heritage centre on Friday, October 16 between 4pm and 6pm, so get in touch as soon as you can to guarantee your place at our private preview.
How to apply
E-mail [firstname.lastname@example.org](mailto:email@example.com?subject=Astra Reader Test Team) for your chance to take part. We'll need the following information:
• Where you'll be travelling from on the day
• Your mobile number
• What car you currently drive
• A few lines on why you're interested in seeing the Astra
We'll send further details to all the successful applicants.
What will happen on the day
We'll be asking you for your views on the Astra's design, ergonomics and specification.
Your comments will be published in What Car? magazine, along with photos we'll take of you with the car.
You'll also be asked to speak briefly to camera for whatcar.com video footage.
Please note that this is a static viewing of the car you won't be able to drive it at this event.
