Used Vauxhall Astra car buying guide

The Vauxhall Astra has been around for years and with good reason. It's a no-nonsense hatchback that’s spacious, good to drive and stylish. Its interior has luxurious touches with plenty of standard kit. It won't cost you a fortune to run either.

The style of the car

The Astra has evolved into a very stylish model with plenty of elegant curves to give it a premium look and feel. Whether you want the useful five-door hatchback, spacious Sports Tourer estate or something more sporty like the SRi, GTC or VXR, there’s an Astra to suit you.

How it drives

The turbocharged petrol engines and efficient diesel all provide effortless motoring, even on long distance drives. It’s comfortable on most road surfaces and all models have cruise control. The Astra is a pleasure to park with its light steering and parking sensors - some models even have parking assist to help you into tight spaces. The versatile estate version makes a good tow car. 

The interior

The compact Astra matches many of its rivals in terms of size, ensuring it's easy to live with in either the city or rural areas. With the exception of earlier three-door high performance models, all have five doors with the estate featuring a longer rear for its larger luggage area. All models have ample boot space for daily use and travel needs. The interior is spacious with a well-designed, quality feel and equipment levels are generous including features, such as the IntelliLink touchscreen infotainment system.

Running costs and reliability

The Astra represents great value for money compared with rivals, thanks to a wide range of prices to suit all budgets. The petrol engines are almost as economical as the diesel and all cars are comparable to rivals when it comes to tax and insurance costs. Servicing and parts pricing is also good and Vauxhall scores highly in many reliability surveys. Safety is a strong point for the Astra with a five-star Euro NCAP rating while some models have a driver assistance package for even greater peace of mind. 

How it compares with similar cars

The Astra is larger, more practical and generally more expensive than the Vauxhall Corsa. It’s a match for the rival Ford Focus in style and the way it drives. A long list of standard equipment is a bonus and the Astra is available with a range of petrol and diesel engines that meet most requirements. It was Carbuyer’s Used Car of the Year in 2018 and has won numerous awards from What Car magazine. You could also consider the Vauxhall Astra GTC.
