A used Vauxhall Astra comes with a pretty good level of specification. The latest generation of the Astra was launched in 2021 and is available with a range of petrol, diesel, and plug-in hybrid engines. It has a sharp and modern design, with a spacious and comfortable interior. The Astra is also packed with technology, including a digital instrument cluster, a head-up display, and a range of driver assistance features.
The Astra is also very fuel-efficient, especially the plug-in hybrid model. This makes it a great choice for anyone who wants to save money on running costs. But if you are set on petrol or diesel, then the most efficient model is the 1.5-litre diesel that will get you 65.7mpg combined! But the petrol models are also impressively efficient, with the best of them, the 1.2-litre, returning up to 54.3mpg.
The hatchback category is flooded with strong competition to the Vauxhall Astra. Rivals such as the famous Volkswagen Golf or the luxurious Mercedes-Benz A-Class. But if you are looking for something matching in price, perhaps the Ford Focus or the Hyundai i20, both with great ratings and sales numbers.
