    Default New Astra Sports Tourer...

    As per the title - anyone here got one...?

    Thinking of taking the plunge and picking one up brand new due to VX having the 0% APR with no fixed deposit over however many years you want, 100,000 warranty and military discount...

    Any thoughts and comments appreciated...

    Dunno about the new tourers but my local VX dealer has a yellow GTC in and it's very smart!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    The forum swear filter prevents me from telling you where you can put your yellow hatchback......

    I have a Astra Sports Tourer 1.7 CDTI Exclusiv. (Company car). They are great cars.
    The diesels are very smooth and even though mine has the lower bhp engine, it still moves pretty well when required. Suspension is spot on, they handle great.

    I would buy one (if finances permit)......A 2.0cdti (165) SRI VX-line with all the toys would be my choice, but thats only because they dont do an Elite in Sports Tourer form!

    This is the confusing bit - whether to go with the SE or the SRi....

    Test them both, I dont think you will be disapointed in either model. SE obviously has more toys as standard than an SRI.

    Vehicle : Vauxhall Astra-J

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTi

    Year : 2013

    Default

    Bloke has a base model 1.4 petrol at work. Apart from being underpowered, it's quite a good car.

    I had a test day at Millbrook proving ground a couple of years ago just prior to the launch of the hatch/saloon. Brilliant cars to drive. Unfortunately I missed out on driving the 1.6 turbo.
