Engine:1.6T 16V 200
This 197bhp 1.6-litre turbocharged engine is currently the most powerful engine you can get in the Vauxhall Astra. A 0-60mph time of 6.6 seconds isn’t too far off the pace of many hot hatches although economy and emissions suffer. It’s fast and refined, and a pleasure to use, but for most people the cheaper 148bhp 1.4i will be more than enough.
