What used Vauxhall Astra sports will I get for my budget?
How much does it cost to run a Vauxhall Astra sports?
The Astra is cheap to buy and run, although there is a price to pay in the sense that it doesn't have the image of some of its rivals.
If you don't mind that, you'll appreciate the decent economy. The slow 1.6 gives 42mpg, with the 1.8 and 2.0 Turbo delivering 35mpg and 31mpg respectively. The 2.2-litre returns 34mpg. You won't be stung for insurance, either. The 1.6 starts in group 9 and the Turbo falls into group 16, with the 1.8 and 2.2 between the two extremes in groups 11 and 13, respectively.
