What's the used Vauxhall Astra coupe like?

Being based on the Astra hatchback is no bad thing as it provides the Coupe with a taut chassis and good cornering ability. The Coupe sits 30mm lower than the standard car and has firmer suspension settings, so it drives more sportily, but you'll only notice the ride being anything less than comfortable on the bumpiest of roads.

Likewise, the driver shouldn't have any problem getting comfortable thanks to a highly adjustable seat and steering column. However, the design of the cabin is not that inspiring (and not that different to the standard hatchback), although it is well laid out and logical.
