View all Vauxhall Astra reviews
Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

Has a four-star Euro NCAP crash test score, which is above average for a car of this generation. The number of airbags on offer varies depending on age and specification of the model. ABS is generally only fitted to better models in the range. Immobiliser and unique-fit stereo on all models.

Load area is huge and is easy to access thanks to a boot floor that's close to the floor. Interior space could be better packaged: CD multichanger is in the glove box. It's easy to use, but eats into valuable space.
