Vauxhall Astra Hatchback 2.2i 16V SRi 3d (AC) (2000/X) - Owner Review

Always competent haven't got near limits of grip when cornering at high speed. Very good road holding but quite clinical for a hot hatch.

Performance

4 out of 5

Deceptively fast. Has been just done by Saab 9-3 2.0t and 320d on motorway. Nice to blow off average 2.0 litre Vectra/Mondeo crew.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Slight electrical problem, rear brakes drag occasionally.

Inoffensive brand, looks like slightly sporty Vauxhall but quite subtle considering 1.8SRi looks same.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Comfortable well-made cabin, good ride with long suspension travel.
