This Astra changed my view on the model. I liked what it had now become. It still feels a little bland around the edges and a touch too safe. It should, however, be on your shopping list. There is an Astra out there to suit your needs. Some of the technology is a bit behind the times and needs a tweak here and there or save yourself £1565 and don’t have the technology. That way you are left with a pleasant car minus the annoyances.
