Review

Our Astra’s sporty looks – including bodykit and lowered suspension – have forced a change of habits.

To get to my usual parking spot I have to drive up a fairly severe slope, but the modest ground clearance of the Astra means a plastic skirt under the front bumper scrapes on the incline.

However, this is no great hardship and the Astra has otherwise impressed, with a pleasing feel of solidity and plenty of urge from the 1.6 CDTi engine.

Based on the same platform as the new Peugeot 208, the Corsa is about as far from its predecessor as it could get.
