What Car? says...
We all like to get value for money when it comes to buying a car, and the Vauxhall Astra has long provided that in the family hatchback class.
Indeed, this well-established contender is now in its eighth generation, and has been on sale for more than four decades. For the Astra to remain as popular as it has been throughout that time is quite an achievement, and Vauxhall will be hoping this latest version can carry on that tradition.
Previous generations offered a generous amount of kit and a wide range of engines, but the Astra didn’t really shine in any one area. So does this model – with its sharper looks, electrified engine options and up-to-date tech – have what it takes to mix it with the very best family cars? Read on to see how we rate its performance, comfort, practicality and safety.
