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.

Top-spec Astras come with larger 18in alloy wheels, adaptive LED headlights, 360-degree camera, head-up display, wireless phone-charging and a panoramic roof.

The plug-in hybrid combines a 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine with an electric motor to produce a combined output of 178bhp. That's enough to sprint from 0-60mph in 7.7sec and on to a top speed of 140mph.
