It's a diesel so a bit slow, but handles very well. Steering a bit too light.

Vauxhall Astra Hatchback (98-05)

Cheap to insure and run.

Performance

3 out of 5

It's ok for a diesel. Happier once it's wound up. 0-60 in 16 secs, but is better on acceleration after you hit 40.

Reliability

3 out of 5

No major problems, just silly annoying things like small rubber fuel pipes.

Image

3 out of 5

The three door looks quite Coupe-like and looks quite nice in a metallic. It's just the name 'Astra' that lets it down.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Firm, supportive seats and everything is easy to reach. Suspension's good too. Not too soft, not too jarring.
