Vauxhall Astra Hatchback 2.2i 16V SRi 3d (AC) (2003/52) - Owner Review

Firm set up is the pay-off for great grip and poised handling when you're chucking it around corners.

Vauxhall Astra Hatchback (98-05)

Value

4 out of 5

Bought second hand, nothing can touch the Astra for this sort of money.

Costs

4 out of 5

Not bad, but make sure you play the Vauxhall dealers off against each other for servicing costs!

Driving

Firm set up is the pay-off for great grip and poised handling when you're chucking it around corners.

Engine is smooth and flexible.

Doesn't stand out from the hot hatch crowd, which isn't always a bad thing. You can take some of these boy racers by surprise.

Comfort

3 out of 5

I'm 6' 2" and have no problems with the driving position. My only complaint is that although the steering wheel is height and rake adjustable, the amount of movement it offers isn't that generous.

None, but it's disappointing that the earlier models had unpainted side skirts and bumpers.
