Good value for money, only IG 5 so the insurance is good for the type and size of car

Costs

3 out of 5

Fuel econemy average. No great faults in the car, so the maintenece costs are low aswell

Driving

4 out of 5

Good driving position. Excellent, easy, firm gearbox

Performance

4 out of 5

Good performance and has brilliant gear ratios, although it doesn't sound like it enjoys getting over revved, so best to keep rev's low and keep the engine quiet

Reliability

5 out of 5

No problems with the running of the car

Image

3 out of 5

Fading image as the astra MK4 is far to common nowadays, but not to worry

Comfort

4 out of 5

The seats could be softer, but they are reasonably acceptable as they are
