What's the used Vauxhall Astra hatchback like?

The five-door Astra is comfortable, spacious and decent to drive. However, if you fancy something more exciting, the three-door Sport Hatch has agressive looks, stiffer suspension and better handling.

Both versions are good cruisers, although the Sport Hatch has more wind noise at motorway speeds. All the petrol engines are refined, but the diesels are grumbly around town, although they do quieten down at motorway speeds.
