Used Vauxhall Astra Hatchback (2004 - 2010) Buying & Selling

Review by David Ross on

The Vauxhall Astra is a good all-rounder that's sharply styled and easy to live with. It's not the most exciting or involving car to drive but it's safe and composed with good road manners while there's a wide range of strong diesel and petrol engines.

Buying used

There’s a good amount of choice, with plenty of petrols and diesels on the used market. Astra diesels command a slight premium but as this car is popular with fleets there are plenty of them around. Avoid high mileage models and base spec Expression cars.

All models are well equipped but Life models and above are the easiest to sell on as they have air conditioning. Otherwise, a clean Astra with a full service history will be snapped up quickly if it’s priced sensibly.
