Vauxhall Astra Hatchback (98-05)

Value

3 out of 5

Expensive in comparison to some other brand new cars.

Costs

4 out of 5

Low road tax and insurance, but drinks petrol if you go to high revs for any poke.

Driving

4 out of 5

Handles well, smooth ride.

Performance

3 out of 5

Realistically, the engine is too small for a car this size. Don't expect to climb many hills if you've three people in the back.

Reliability

4 out of 5

No operational problems so far.

3 out of 5

Excellent for short drives, not bad for a couple of hours... but gets uncomfy after three hours.
