A well sorted family estate that’s comfortable, spacious and affordable, if not quite as practical as the Skoda Octavia Estateread the full model review
Includes a sporty design of 17in wheel, front fog lights, leather steering wheel, sports seats, a front armrest, auto lights and wipers, a six speaker stereo with OnStar, auto dimming rear mirror, and auto braking. Probably the best bet for private buyers once you’ve added sat-nav, thanks to attractive finance deals.,
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.
