Review

Attractive company car tax bills and big discounts for private buyers are the two main pulls of the Vauxhall Astra. If you’re looking to inject a little excitement to your daily commute, the Ford Focus is a better bet, but the Astra is still a fair choice if you just want a down-to-earth family hatchback.

get the best price

Entry-level SE is worth considering, because you get 16in alloy wheels, air-conditioning, cruise control and a 7.0in touchscreen infotainment system. Disappointingly, though, there’s no automatic emergency braking or alarm.
