    Default Expensive Astra at Perrys methinks

    Went to perrys vauxhall in Preston today to see if they had an Insignia I could have a look at and while i was there i spotted a new astra outside (it was one of those convertible hard tops) with a price tag of...................................wait for it.................................£23450!!
    It was a cdti version but couldn't believe it, to say vauxhall need to sell cars and lots of them, the price seems a bit unreasonable to me when you compare what other cars you can get for that price.
    What do you think?

    Must have been a heck of a spec. My Sporthatch was £21k when it was new, and it was a Design with just about every option on it.

    Well I just specced up the most expensive model I could on the Vauxhall website, and it came to just over 25K, so I'd say it mut be fairly near the top...

    Thats not uncommon, if it is a new car, they have to advertise the recomended retail price including all options.

    The astra was a 'design' model.

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    The plain truth is that you pay a premium of £3000 for the hard-top compared to the equivalent 5-door hatch, (on manufacturers recommended prices), and you don't see the same kind of discounts new and they hold their value well, as they are not high-volume sellers. And the 1.8 petrol uses the pre-VVT engine (120bhp). It's a high price to pay for a gimmick......unless you really want to drive with the roof down. Each to his/her own.

    You can spec a TT up to more than that if you go silly with the build. And if it's new then yes, the price on the screen is the retail plus options plus delivery plus tax.
