Which used Vauxhall Astra estate should I buy?
You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to engines for the Astra Sports Tourer, from a low-powered 1.3 diesel to a 192bhp 2.0 diesel. There are also naturally aspirated 1.4 and 1.6 petrols and a turbocharged 1.4.
We recommend the 1.6 petrol if you do most of your driving around town, because it's a great compromise of pace and efficiency. It also has more power and torque than the 1.4 – something you'll need if you plan on lugging lots of heavy stuff.
If you plan to cover lots of miles, choose the 1.6 diesel. This is flexible and efficient much more refined than the 2.0.
Tech Line trim has most of the standard kit you’ll need, including air conditioning, electric front windows, cruise control, 16in alloys, a CD player, sat-nav, a USB port, Bluetooth and a DAB radio.
If you want your Astra Sports Tourer to look a bit sportier, there's SRi trim, which comes with 17in alloys and performance-inspired bits of interior trim.
