The Vauxhall Astra is no longer the dull, rep-friendly company car it once was. The current car is just as stylish as a Ford Focus and goes some way to challenge the VW Golf in terms of build quality and interior finish. There’s a choice of three and five-door hatchbacks and a more practical estate, with a two-door Cascada convertible taking the place of the old Astra TwinTop. All models feel comfortable and secure on the road and if you plump for one of the eco-diesels, you’ll manage impressive mpg, too. Used values are weak, but dealers tend to offer big discounts on both new and pre-owned cars, so try to avoid paying list price on all but the flagship VXR hot-hatchback versions. All-in, the Astra is a practical, durable and dependable, well-rounded family car.
