New Vauxhall Astra in Accrington Lancashire
The Astra is a firm favourite with keen drivers because it delivers a premium driving experience at a great price. You can’t go wrong with the Astra, and this new model delivers a better drive than ever, with turbocharged engines and the option of a 9-speed automatic transmission for seamless progress. Add cruise control, blind spot warning, parking sensors and a rear-view camera and you have the ultimate hatch.
SE, Business Edition Nav, SRi, SRi Nav and Elite Nav Premium trims are available. Standard kit includes cruise control and Apple CarPlay / Android Auto. Business Edition Nav models add LED headlights. Further up the range you’ll find heated front and rear outer seats, front and rear parking sensors, ergonomic active sports seats and an electric parking brake. That’s all the features you want in one sleek package.
The Astra’s understated design oozes quality. Little things like LED headlights and 16” alloy wheels elevate it into a higher class. Inside, the cabin is airy with perforated leather seats in Elite Nav models providing a dose of luxury.
The Astra is powered by a 1.2 turbo petrol engine with 100PS or 145PS or a 1.5 turbo D engine with 105PS or 122PS. The engines are smooth and powerful with start and stop to reduce emissions and improve refinement around town.
The Astra’s 370-litre boot is an impressive load space and the rear seats split fold 60-40 to make it more usable. Elite Nav Premium models have keyless entry and start to make access easy. SRi models onwards get an electronic parking brake.
