A hatchback with a twist, the Vauxhall Astra combines a graceful, athletic body with the high-power performance of a larger vehicle. With plenty of space inside and a treasure trove of innovative technology, it is a great family car, perfect for navigating the city.
Headlights, cleverly integrated with the front grille and bumper, give the Astra a sporty edge, and its broad shoulder lines and wide stance hint at agile handling and superb durability. The roomy cabin features soft-touch materials and plush upholstery, whilst in-built air conditioning allows you to recline into your seat and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere. A potential loadspace volume of 1,216 litres lets you store the whole family’s luggage with room to spare.
You can choose from a selection of cutting edge petrol and diesel engines to ensure that the Astra’s specifications meet your own requirements. A 1.3-litre CDTI ecoFLEX diesel engine, with manual five-speed transmission, can grant you combined fuel consumption of 68.9 MPG, and CO2 emissions of just 109g/km, reducing your running costs significantly. For extra power the 2.0-litre CDTI, with automatic six-speed transmission, can blast from 0-60mph in 8.5 seconds whilst attaining a top speed of 134mph, so whether you’d prefer power, efficiency, or a satisfying blend of the two, the Astra is sure to have an engine to suit your needs.
Should you choose to, the Vauxhall Astra can be upgraded to include a wealth of technology. As standard, however, you get a number of features including an MP3-compatible audio system and an adjustable steering column, and the car is rendered secure by safety mechanisms like ESP, a range of airbags and a remote-controlled central deadlocking system.
