7th-generation Vauxhall Astra remains popular with its money-saving deals

Article by Anita Panait, on February 7, 2013

More than three years after its launch in 2009, the seventh-generation Vauxhall Astra remains one of the very popular models in the United Kingdom. It still also offers a great value for customers’ money as the model is improving each year that it is placed on sale. Vauxhall Astra comes with a great quality finish and carries fascinating looks that draws people in.

The Astra boasts a number of features that allow it to provide enjoyable and comfortable ride and safe handling. However, the Astra posed not quite a challenge to other vehicles in its own segment and class, such as the Ford Focus VW Golf and Kia Cee'd. Despite that, the Astra continues to offer value to customers who want to experience a good ride.

The Astra is available in several engine options, including the 2012-released 1.7 CDTi Ecoflex diesel engine that provides up to 130bhp of output while emitting just 99 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer traveled. Customers, however, should not expect to achieve the same fuel economy figures during actual driving, since some tests have shown that the engine may not live up to its promised numbers.

For persons interested in acquiring and riding on an Astra, they could opt for the 1.7 CDTi 16V EcoFlex 130 SRi model, which carries a price of £22,065. A driver opting for more power could choose a 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine that could provide up to 140bhp of output.
