FAQs

Frequently asked questions about the Vauxhall Astra

  • What is the Vauxhall Astra?
  • Almost four decades have passed since the first Vauxhall Astra went on sale in the UK back in 1980, but despite the vast array of bodystyles available, and the recent change of ownership of its parent company, it’s remained right at the heart of the small family car sector.

    Today’s Astra has an array of familiar foes to compete with, including the Ford Focus and the Volkswagen Golf, but also from other rivals that weren’t even around when the Mk1 version appeared, such as the Kia Ceed and SEAT Leon. Astras are sold in many other parts of the world, but only as a Vauxhall in the UK. Elsewhere in Europe it’s been sold as the Opel Astra since 1991, before that as the Opel Kadett.
  • Which versions are available?
  • Launched in Mk7 guise towards the end of 2015, and known by enthusiasts as the Astra K, this is the simplest line-up yet in terms of bodystyle variations. On sale first was the popular five-door Vauxhall Astra Hatchback, the mainstay of the range, expanded in spring 2016 with the estate-bodied Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer.

    And that’s your lot – not like days of old, as we explore below. It’s a similar story with the engine range, with the largest petrol and diesel motors being only 1.6 litres in capacity, although the turbocharged version of the former is still good for 200hp and was dropped at the end of 2018. Trim levels follow Vauxhall’s usual pattern of SE, Elite Nav, Ultimate Nav, the fleet market-focused Business Edition Nav, with SRi and SRi VX-Line Nav offering sportier themes.

    Vauxhall gave the Astra the mildest of facelifts in the second half of 2019, with subtly different bumpers and grilles, but those blink-and-you'll-miss-them changes hide a wealth of mechanical alterations. Big news is that parent company PSA - which also owns Citroen, DS and Peugeot - has installed its own range of three-cylinder 1.2- and 1.4-litre petrols and 1.5-litre diesels in place of the original General Motors-sourced powerplants.
  • What is the Vauxhall Astra VXR?
  • For fans of performance Vauxhalls, sadly it’s a model that no longer exists – not that the fastest Astras have always carried the VXR badge, either, but the Mk7 is the first iteration not to have a truly sporty range-topper. The last VXR was discontinued in 2014 when the sixth-generation three-door Astra GTC coupe was renamed simply as GTC.

    Before that, the VXR name was applied to the Mk5 Astra only in Sport Hatch guise. For the Mk3 and Mk4 Astra, Vauxhall adopted the GSi moniker previously used by its European counterpart Opel for the hottest models, while the quickest versions of the Mk1 and Mk2 were badged GTE.
  • What's under the skin?
  • Looks-wise, the Mk7 Astra is a safe, conventional design that is unlikely to polarize opinion – save, perhaps, for the rear end of the Sports Tourer’s roof shape where it appears rather clunky. Inside is a similar story, with an inoffensive dashboard design largely constructed of good quality plastics – just a pity that it’s so flair-free. Following that mild 2019 facelift, expect this generation of Astra to soldier-on until the end of 2021 when it will be replaced by a new version built upon PSA underpinnings.
  • Is it good to drive?
  • While suggesting that the Astra is a decent car to drive despite its underpinnings sounds as though it’s being damned with faint praise, the fact it is was developed – relatively speaking – on a shoestring as a stop-gap model, but the Vauxhall is an enjoyable steer all the same.

    Sure, it won’t delight its owners in the same way a Focus, Ceed or Golf will, but the fundamentals are there: it corners neatly with fine feedback, body control is well-judged and the ride strikes a fine balance between roadholding and outright comfort.
  • How much does the Vauxhall Astra cost?
  • Compare the Vauxhall Astra’s list prices with its immediate rivals and it appears largely on par, but few people buy their cars that way these days and on finance schemes such as PCH and PCP, the Astra is not that competitive. Our advice is to shop around at numerous dealers and with brokers, although be aware that this may well restrict your choice of engines, trim levels and extra-cost options.
