The Vauxhall Astra is a family hatchback that does everything well. It’s good-looking without being flashy, and it also drives nicely too. On top of that, it’s loaded with technology and is typically more affordable than some of its main rivals, making it an excellent all-rounder. See our latest Vauxhall Astra lease deals on offer today and get a fantastic offer on your next new car.
The Astra is a roomy car. There’s also a bit more space in the rear of a Focus but you’ll still easily fit 4 tall adults in the Astra, and 3 grown-ups can squeeze in the back if you need them to. The high rear windows make it slightly darker than some rivals – something worth noting if you have small children.
The 370-litre boot will be big enough for most needs and is bigger than that found in a Focus. If you want lots of luggage space, consider the Astra Sports Tourer estate, which gives you a very generous 540 litres of capacity.
Cubby holes are plentiful and include big door pockets, a generous glovebox and space under the centre armrest, as well as a tray in front of the gearstick.
As there are no performance versions of the Astra, all the engines are geared more towards economy. This is good news for running costs and they compare well to rivals. The petrol engines promise up to 54.3mpg, no matter the power output, while the diesels can deliver up to 65.7mpg. The larger Sports Tourer models drop about 1mpg compared to the hatchback.

The Astra’s main rival is the Ford Focus, which is a great car but slightly more expensive. The Astra has a larger boot, but less space in the back.
Yes. This latest Astra is the best version of a car that’s been on sale since the 1970s. It drives well, is generously equipped and leasing costs are very competitive.
There are some concerns about the Astra’s reliability, as it’s not performed well in independent dependability studies. Vauxhall as a brand hasn’t excelled itself either. However, a good warranty and a quality feel to the build of the latest model should ease such concerns.
It depends on your priorities. The Focus is a better car to drive and there’s a wider choice of models, but its leasing costs are higher. The Astra offers excellent value for money and more boot space.
Insurance premiums will vary depending on your circumstances. The Astra’s insurance groups range between 14 and 20 (of 50), which is broadly similar to its main rivals.
If you need something with space for passengers and luggage then the Astra is a good choice. It’s a good car and easy to drive for beginners. However, new drivers might find a smaller city car easier to handle and the costs will be lower.
Yes, the Astra’s engines are all relatively easy on fuel. You can expect up to 65.7mpg, depending on model. However, there are no hybrid or electric models, which would lower consumption further.

When it comes to leasing a midsized hatchback, there are 2 mainstream contenders – the Ford Focus and the Vauxhall Astra. The pair have been fierce rivals for years and regularly sit at the top of the UK’s bestsellers list. Why? Because they’re great examples of cars that can do it all. Now the Astra has had an incredible makeover and it's likely to become even more popular.
Much of what makes the Focus so popular is mirrored in the Vauxhall Astra. Like the Ford, the Astra is small, but big enough for family use. It’s affordable, but doesn't feel cheap. It’s good to drive. It’s got plenty of equipment included as standard, and a wide choice of trims and engines.
Many will be happy with the Astra Hatchback, but you can also choose a Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer lease if you want extra boot space. As all-rounders go, the Astra is up there with the very best. Read our Vauxhall Astra review for more details on the difference between the two.
Like its exterior design, the Astra’s interior is smart without being ostentatious or tacky. It feels classy, with plenty of soft-touch materials and a simple-to-use touchscreen infotainment system, even on entry-level models.
Most cars have a sat nav, and all have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which let you access your smartphone apps through the car’s screen. High-end models also get a digital driver display, rather than a traditional analogue speedometer.
A good family hatchback needs to be comfortable, as well being nimble and fun behind the wheel. The Astra does an excellent job at this too. Bad road surfaces are massaged away well, especially on cars with smaller alloy wheels. The steering is light enough for easy manoeuvring around town, but has enough heft to feel confident through the bends – the Astra feels alert and agile on a country road. For this, the Focus is better, but the Astra outshines many other rivals.
You can choose from a petrol- or diesel-powered Vauxhall Astra lease. The petrol cars are all 1.2-litre engines with a choice of 3 power levels. The mid-spec 130hp model will be plenty for most, with punchy acceleration when you need it. Two 1.5-litre diesels are also available, with 2 power choices. They’re a bit noisier than the petrol engines, but get better fuel economy, so will suit those that do longer journeys.
The regular Astra is a 5-door hatchback.
