Review continues below...

The Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer is a compact estate that competes with rivals like the Ford Focus Estate, Skoda Octavia Estate, Volkswagen Golf Estate, Seat Leon ST and Kia Cee’d SW.

Pricing is one of the Astra’s key selling points, as it undercuts many of its rivals despite being fairly well equipped, and it has some very efficient petrol and diesel engines that will appeal to private and company car buyers alike.

Read on over the next few pages to get our in depth impressions of the Astra ST, along with our recommendations for which of the many trim levels and engines to choose.
