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.
