The Vauxhall Astra blends value with good ride comfort, tidy handling and adequate performance. We’d suggest sticking with the cheaper trim levels to make the most of the Astra’s keen pricing, as it struggles to trouble the more accomplished cars in the class. We'd go for the 1.2-litre 130 petrol engine and mid-spec GS trim.
