Vauxhall Astra GTC Coupe (11-18)

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
That i am different, there are hundreds of same colored cars on the roads and i wanted something that stood out, my kids and grandkids will ride in my car and they think it is great then i am glad i went for a slightly different style to normal.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They all know i like motors that are different and all agree it looks very nice, my friends all know i love bright cars and expected me to something different and they do not feel embarresed to be in my car, my kids and grandkids love it because their mums and dads only have grey cars, only had one negative comment from a neighbour as he said it was too bright but he only ever buys blue cars.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes because it is comfortable to sit in, easy to drive, pretty good on fuel and has a great boot space.

What are you likely to buy next?
Will see in 3 years time but at present it will be another vauxhall and hopefully by then their will be an even more bright colored Astra GTC SRi for me to enjoy.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Can be very quick if you want the speed to overtake on motorways etc, very comfortable seating and back support making for a pleasurable experience behind the wheel, being an automatic car means you are not constantly shifting up and down the gears as it does all this for you.

What's it like to park?
Very easy as it has parking sensors front and back which bleep as you get close to other vehicles, kerbs or bollards etc., i have been able to park it so much easier than my previous car.

No just perfect,.

What's most practical about your car?
Grwat wide doors for ease of access especially suitable for those of us who suffer a bit of leg pain.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Automatic headlight system and day running lights, having the automatic headlighting means i do not have to turn lights on etc as it is done automatically, also the ambient red lighting inside the car gives it a homely warm feel.
