The redoubtable Vauxhall Astra has been a common sight on British streets four nearly four decades. Making its début in 1979, this popular family car has been available in a number of shapes and sizes over the years. While the vehicle typically comes as a hatchback, other variants have included estate and saloon versions. Most Astra models come in five-door form, although some earlier examples of the car feature two – or three-door – body styles, as do more recent convertible and Coupé editions.
Currently, the vehicle is available from dealerships as a Hatchback, Sports Tourer and Coupé. The present-generation Astra Hatchback comes with 16-inch alloy wheels as standard and a range of body-coloured fixtures, including power-operated and heated door mirrors.
More recent models also feature air conditioning, electric front and rear windows and a four-speaker sound system as standard, as well as Bluetooth connectivity that enables music streaming and the hands-free use of your smartphone. The car comes with a five-star Euro NCAP rating, and safety features such as six airbags, ISOFIX child-seat points, Electronic Stability Programme and Anti-lock Braking System. Each of these is fitted as standard, as is a specially constructed bonnet that minimises the risk of injury to cyclists and pedestrians thanks to the use of energy-absorbing materials. Newer models also possess a 370-litre boot capacity, which can be more than trebled when rear seats are folded.
Naturally, with each new wave of models, performance levels and fuel economy figures have progressively improved. Present-day Astra iterations return between 46.3mpg and an impressive 85.6mpg. The latter is delivered by models fitted with a 1.6-litre diesel engine, which also produces CO2 emissions as low as 82g/km. It also delivers 110bhp, 300Nm of torque and 0-60mph in approximately 10.4 seconds.
