Since its launch in 1961 there have been six generations of the Vauxhall Astra, along with many inter-generation facelifts. It is a very popular vehicle with strong appeal to the younger driver as well as a small family car, and is available in many formats; from the sedate to the very sporty.
The Astra is available as a saloon, a hatchback, a convertible, a sports tourer, an estate, a sports hatch, and a twin top. There is also an Astra VXR.
Whichever version of the Astra you choose you will gain a lot of car for your money. There are numerous engine choices which allow you to go for performance or economy, or make a compromise between the two. The car is comfortable and roomy and feels good to drive, both in town and out on the open road.
If you enjoy open top motoring but you also have a very practical attitude to our British climate, then you need to look no further than a used Twin Top model, with an excellent folding metal roof, that does not take up all the luggage space.
A used Vauxhall Astra is a very popular buy and there are a huge number of them available across the UK from approved Vauxhall dealers, independent traders and private sellers. No matter where you are in the UK, Motors.co.uk could find a deal on a used Vauxhall Astra near you.
The sportiest Vauxhall Astra is the Astra VXR which was launched in 2005. This model has a turbocharged 2.0 litre engine which produces 240 bhp. The 0 to 62 mph acceleration time is 6.2 seconds and the general feel is as a very sporty hatchback and is great to drive.
