Used Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer 2016-present review

What alternatives should I consider to a used Vauxhall Astra estate?

The Seat Leon ST is almost as inexpensive as the Astra Sports Tourer, looks a little sharper and feels a bit smarter inside. However, the ride is a touch firmer and you have to pay quite a lot more for the smarter versions.

If space is your primary concern, the Skoda Octavia Estate should be on your list. It offers the biggest boot in the class and loads of room for rear passengers, as well as a good range of frugal yet gutsy engines

Or if the Astra’s reliability is a concern, you could always try the Toyota Auris Touring Sports. It isn’t as comfortable, spacious or good to drive, but it is one of the most reliable estates out there and comes with a long warranty. It’s almost as cheap to buy as the Astra, too.
