The Vauxhall Astra blends value with good ride comfort, tidy handling and adequate performance, but struggles to trouble the best family cars in other areas. If you do buy one, we recommend going for the 1.2-litre 130 petrol engine and mid-spec GS trim.

This entry-level Astra comes with 16in alloy wheels, automatic lights and wipers, LED headlights, climate control, keyless ignition and cruise control.

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.
