Another month, another Astra.

That’s how it feels as our long-term Astra Elite’s brake light issue returned.

The latest Astra demonstrator is the SRI Nav with the same 1.0-litre engine as the Elite (the spec shown on this page is for this SRI Nav car).

This car is finished in emerald green, which does its best to disguise the good looks Vauxhall has bestowed on its latest generation lower medium hatch. Lighter and brighter colours like the silver, white and red really show off the sharp creases and crisp bodywork of the new car.

SRI Nav is likely to be a popular trim level, particularly in retail, though some fleet buyers may opt for this over the Tech Line trim we tried last time the car was in repair.

What are the differences? SRI Nav is 3.5ppm more expensive than Tech Line, and adds a few features that fleet drivers may appreciate.

The Driver Assistance Pack includes lane departure warning, traffic sign recognition, and forward collision alert. Other nice benefits include automatic lights and wipers, front fog lights and Vauxhall’s OnStar driver help service.

If you were to opt for the Elite, like our silver long-(lost) termer, you gain leather seats, electric handbrake, heated seats (an option on the SRI Nav), an additional split in the rear seats, and some handily placed USBs for rear passengers.
