Everything. I have no idea why this car gets high ratings in reviews. It's terrible! Seats are extremely uncomfortable, Ride is poor, corners are scary as reaction is hardly predictable (and changes with three people on board vs driver only!). Engines are underpowered and noisy. You can hear tyres and wind noise more than in older competitors cars. Interior is cheap, plasticky and cramped. Seats wear off quickly. Brakes feel weak too. Ride is uncomfortable, gear shifts are relatively short but not precise. Dashboard is terrible. Lights are hard to switch on. Driving position is poor and visibility is close to none! It's easier to park a LandCruiser - which is unbelievable in such a small car. On top of that reliability sucks. Everything constantly fails - electrics, locks, engines. Few hundred miles and things start to squeak and leak. Because of poor reliability this car is NOT cheap to run. Residual values are terrible too. My best advice - avoid at all cost. Read user reviews - not critics reviews. Oh, and fuel consumption is twice that claimed..Show More

Efficient engines, the very latest technology and prices lower than its predecessor all add to the Astra’s appeal. The 1.0-litre turbo petrol three-cylinder SRi model is arguably the pick of the line-up, thanks to its blend of gutsy performance, agile handling, sharp looks and a generous amount of standard equipment. As an affordable and fun family hatchback, the Astra makes a fine choice.Show More
