VAUXHALL ASTRA SRi
The Astra is a good all-rounder, scoring highly in terms of style and choice throughout the range. The fact the Astra was at one point used for the ‘Star in a Reasonably Priced Car’ segment on Top Gear, where celebrities try to set the fastest time around a track, says a lot about its reputation as a reliable investment in hassle-free motoring. It also speaks volumes about its potential for power when you need it.
It’s good looking and well made. Mostly bought new as a five-door, chances are that you’ll be able to find one of those reasonably-priced with ease on the second-hand market, which makes your life easier if you have kids. When you factor in the Astra’s reputation for a roomy interior as well, it makes it a good, lower-cost buy if you want a steady, spacious family car.
Both the hatchback and sports tourer versions have long been a favourite of police forces up and down the country too. So, you know that if it’s well-made and reliable enough for the keepers of the peace, there’s more than a good chance it’ll be able to handle your daily commute.
