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.

The engineSee full engine specs
This is the entry-level petrol engine in the Astra range, and you can only have it with a six-speed manual gearbox. Producing 108bhp from a 1.2-litre turbocharged three-cylinder motor, it takes 10.5sec to get from 0-60mph, while the top speed is 124mph.
