Used car review: Vauxhall Astra
BACK in the Eighties, the Astra's heartland was the sort of guy who liked beer and football but would be intimidated by a curry house menu.
How things change. It's now become massively more sophisticated. Its old clientele has shifted their loyalty to Korean badges and it now campaigns to a far more informed buyer profile.
The latest model has found a ready market and deservedly so, as it's superbly built and attractively styled.
The sixth-generation Astra barely puts a wheel wrong. It's not the most spacious car in its class, but if you need more in the way of practicality, your Vauxhall dealer will point you at a Meriva or a Zafira instead.
There's a huge selection of used vehicles to choose from, so be patient and you could easily come away with a good deal.
