Vauxhall Astra Convertible (01-05) - Review

Review by Parkers on
3.5
The four-seater soft-top Vauxhall Astra Convertible is based on the sleek-looking Astra Coupé and is a sensible choice for those who can't stretch to a Saab 9-3 or Audi A4. Attractively styled by Italian design team Bertone and one of the most popular variants of the Mk4 Astra, this convertible offers buyers a bargain proposition blending great looks, a stylish electric hood and potent performance at a price that won’t break the bank.

What owners say...

 Being a convertible and having a young child I can fold away the roof for easy access to fit/release the baby seat.

 Good size boot that isn't compromised when the roof is down.... Also rear seats that will fit adults.
