Vauxhall Astra SRI VX-Line
The Vauxhall Astra SRI VX-Line is a performance version of this impressive hatchback that sits towards the top of trim levels and really does do exactly what you’d expect. It looks fantastic, has a sporty driving experience, and always has a mild racing attitude to it. Well kitted out, quite practical, versatile and just great for people who want something sporty but not overly expensive, safety and reliability scores are right up there too. On the engine front, you’ll notice 1.4 and 1.6 litre petrol engines, plus 1.7 and 2.0 litre diesels.
Sporty, sleek and definitely stylish, the Vauxhall Astra SRI VX-Line is just a good looking car all round. The interior is just as positive and there’s a nice high quality trim level too. In terms of equipment, you’ll note sports suspension, sports seats, alloy wheels, air conditioning, electric windows, a high quality sound system, airbags, driver assists, remote locking and even a 350 litre boot. It’s very well equipped, but remains great value for money too. Driving wise, all the upgrades really do work and it’s superbly balanced, almost bolted to the road and very responsive in the corners.
