New 2014 Vauxhall Astra Quotes

Performance

With a reputation for refinement and comfort, the Astra is a car for reliability as well as performance. Two 1.4-litres with 86bhp and 99bhp are solid entry level choices whereas the turbocharged 138bhp unit gives more of a punch. Before that, the 113bhp 1.6-litre offers an intermediate choice. The diesel range offers a 94bhp 1.3-litre, two flexible 1.7-litre units with either 108bhp or 128bhp and a couple of faster 2.0-litre (163bhp or 192bhp) complete the line-up.

Running Costs

The 1.7-litre diesel model offers the best in fuel efficiency for the Astra with stop-start technology reducing the CO2 emissions to just 99g/km. A 76.3mpg fuel return also adds to this models frugal qualities. Relatively low insurance groups are also a welcome bonus for all Astra models.

Equipment

With nine trim lines available for the Astra it’s worth ordering a brochure to find out about what each features. All versions have air-conditioning, electric front windows and remote locking as standard. At the top of the range, the Elite trim includes climate control, electrically adjustable heated leather seats and rain-sensitive windscreen wipers. The mid-range Tech Line is good option with alloys, sat-nav, Bluetooth and DAB radio.
