Vauxhall Astra GTC: Review

Vauxhall Astra GTC

Are you bored of the same old Vauxhall Astra? Here’s where the stylish, three-door coupe GTC comes in and saves the day. Vauxhall leasing is becoming more and more popular as the days go on and for every reason. The lease deals available for the GTC vary from good credit, to bad credit, to zero deposit, ensuring that you’re able to find the best deal for you.

Performance & Drive
As expected, the Vauxhall Astra GTC features a range of pretty powerful engines, two which are petrol and two which are diesel. The most powerful engines do come with a start/stop system which aims to improve fuel economy and is therefore more efficient. The suspension has also been improved as it’s lower and does feel more stable whilst on the road. As well as this, the wheels have plenty of grip especially on rough roads which helps the car to feel a lot more balanced, then again it has been specifically designed for the UK roads. With the GTC, you get the choice of FlexRide damping system which aims to help improve the steering when it’s set up in sport mode.

If you’re looking for a more fun looking and sporty car with a little bit of a twist and a larger front grill, then the Vauxhall Astra GTC is ideal for you. The GTC features only three-doors but unlike other cars, it works really well and is actually wider and longer than the normal five-door hatchback which is surprising. The sleek coupe offers the choice of either 19 or 20-inch alloy wheels and the choice of either the SRI, Limited Edition or GTC VXR trim, so you’re able to find the best fit for you.

Cabin & Style
The Vauxhall Astra GTC features a range of trims including the SRi, Limited Edition and the GTC VXR which are all pretty well equipped. The entry level is pretty much the same as the five-door hatchback because the dashboard has been taken from the hatchback and put into the coupe, it’s still messy and unorganised with loads of dials and buttons. Other than that, the SRi version does feature sport seats, a leather steering wheel and more which does cost a little bit more but it’s definitely worth the money. In terms of space, it’s pretty impressive for a coupe as the head and leg room is generous throughout the car as well as offering 380 litres of boot space which is better than its rivals.

Overall, the Vauxhall Astra GTC is definitely a good value for money as you get a lot more than you pay for, especially if the sports design is the one you love. The GTC features pretty much everything you need in a car, along with stunning looks, a great drive with high levels of comfort and a great choice to choose from when it comes to trims and engines.
