Used Vauxhall Astra information

Used Vauxhall Astra FAQ's

Which is the most popular engine in the Vauxhall Astra?

The petrol engines have been the most popular, with some people choosing the smaller options for maximum fuel efficiency and others opting for more output to create faster acceleration.

Which are the most popular trim levels?

Today's Astra comes in three trims: Design, GS and Ultimate. However, the most popular is an older variant, the SRi. These models had larger 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, sports seats, and a Driver Assistance Pack with lane keep assist and autonomous emergency braking.

What optional extras should I look out for?

Customers should look out for the panoramic sunroof, which creates an open feel to the cabin, allowing in more light. There's also a heated windscreen and Alcantara suede seats that add an upmarket feel to the vehicle. We also recommend looking for models equipped with 360-degree parking camera, which makes reverse and parallel parking a breeze.

Is the Vauxhall Astra a good family car?

Yes, the Astra has the space needed to carry a family and the boot space required to haul everyone's gear. The hatchback models are perfectly fine, but the estate versions add an extra layer of practicality thanks to a bigger boot.

Is there a hybrid version of the Vauxhall Astra?

A plug-in hybrid variant of the Astra was released for the latest generation, creating more efficiency and plenty of power. There are also all-electric Astra options, known as the Astra Electric, with a maximum driving range that reaches up to 260 miles per charge.

Is the Vauxhall Astra available as an automatic?

Vauxhall has produced the Astra with both automatic and manual gearboxes. As the manual is more affordable, there are far more used manual Astras available than automatic, but both should be found easily in the used car market.

Is there a four-wheel drive version available?

No, the Astra has never been made with four-wheel drive. For all eight generations, the Astra has only been available with front-wheel drive, for maximum fuel affordability and fuel efficiency.
