Have you seen the new Astra? We’ve got to say, it’s far better than we expected. It’s really quite different and it looks exceptionally modern, doesn’t it?
This is the eighth generation of the Astra and the first to be available with electric drive.
Vauxhall offers the new Astra in two performance levels as a plug-in hybrid and there are petrol and diesel versions too.
As Vauxhall say, the Astra is something of a design statement for the brand. This is what their press release says: ‘Dynamic…sheer, taut surfaces, detoxed of superfluous elements…ready to define a new era.’
Well, that might be over-egging it slightly, but here at NTK Motors we agree that it’s a good looking car.
