“The new Astra is entertaining and sure-footed to drive, while big leaps in interior design and quality make it feel more premium than ever.” – What Car?
What Car have awarded the new Ecoflex design Astra the best family car for under £16,000.
What Car? says: The Vauxhall Astra is one of the best family hatchbacks around. It’s much cheaper than an equivalent VW Golf, and a better all-rounder than a Ford Focus.
