##Astra CD--left##AT the end of 2000 the Vauxhall Astra was Britain's second best-selling car, and fleets accounted for the lion's share of sales. It follows a success story that started with the model's launch back in 1998, when Fleet News reported: 'It makes us feel good to nominate such a deserving class leader after years of so-so products.'

With the latest Astra, now in its third year of sales, there's no reason to amend that opinion: the introduction of the Ford Focus and new Volkswagen Golf may have shifted the goalposts since, but the Astra has evolved to meet each head-on. Here we test the CD 1.8 5dr at £13,495 on the road.

CO2 emissions and fuel consumption data correct at time of writing. The latest figures are available in the Fleet News fuel cost calculator and the company car tax calculator.
