Why Lease A Vauxhall Astra?
What's The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
The Astra is a roomy car, although there are roomier alternatives available, most notably Skoda’s Octavia, or its smaller but still spacious Skoda Scala relative. 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, but rivals including the Octavia, Scala, Honda Civic and Volkswagen Golf have more room still. 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.
Leasing costs are generally lower than the Focus and are comparable to rivals like the Kia Ceed.
Vauxhall AstraThe regular Astra is a 5-door hatchback.
Vauxhall Astra Sports TourerThe 5-door estate model is slightly longer, by about 33cm, and has a larger boot. It also has fewer engine and trim options.
The Vauxhall Astra Vs Competitors
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.
