Why Lease a Vauxhall Astra?
The Vauxhall Astra has been a mainstay on our roads since 1979 – and you still see a lot of old Astra's knocking about among the new sporty variants they make today. If you have ever wondered why there are so many Vauxhall Astra’s about then that’s simple to explain – they have very reasonable prices and they are well built, and also good on the eye! The Astra will not cost the earth and it will go on forever. In 2010 Vauxhall released its 6th generation of Astra and it looks amazing, but the one that really stands out is the incredibly beautiful GTC coupe. And as recent as 2015, the 7th generation of Astra is set to take the market by storm - it's incredible in every aspect! To further demonstrate the reliability of the Astra you can check out our videos through the video tab on the Astra lease deal car hub page. The Vauxhall Astra comes in three variants – the GTC, sport tourer or estate as we know it, and the five-door hatchback.
If you’re price conscious but don’t want to compromise on performance, reliability, tech or design then the Vauxhall Astra is the best compact hatchback available today. With options that include Heated steering wheels, full LED headlights including daytime running lights and front facing driving cameras.
