New Astra model launched

A new model joins Vauxhall’s Astra range which squarely targets similarly-priced five-door hatch rivals by offering levels of standard equipment and trim not usually seen outside the options list.

Starting at £18,110 for the 140PS 1.4-litre Turbo model, the ES Tech comes as standard with a CD500 Satnav system (including CD player, MP3, USB, iPod control, seven speakers and aux-in socket), Bluetooth, a DAB radio, 17-inch alloy wheels and aircon.

For diesel buyers, the Astra ES Tech is available with the 125PS 1.7 CDTi engine, and with sub-120g/km emissions this version is one of Vauxhall’s growing range of ecoFLEX models. At £19,530, the ES Tech ecoFLEX gains key items of standard kit including satnav and cruise control with a combined fuel consumption of 62.8mpg.

“We know that the competition is fierce in the compact class, so the Astra needs to deliver.” said Duncan Aldred, Vauxhall’s managing director. “The new ES Tech models now raise the bar for value and equipment levels in the class and should make buyers think twice before putting their hard-earned cash down on a Ford or VW.”
