Since it first went on sale way back in 1979, the Vauxhall Astra has always been a popular choice for those after a sensible family hatchback. Despite its popularity, you could never call it a class-leading car, something that Vauxhall has tried to remedy with the latest all-new version. Thanks to a fresh platform, the Astra is smaller on the outside yet bigger on the inside than its predecessor.
It promises to be cheaper to run too; not only is it up to £2200 cheaper than before, a weight loss of up to 200kg helps the economy and emissions.
