Another car deal - brand new Vauxhall Astra 1.4i 16v - £8,995. The list price is £17,260 so your saving £8,265 making it nearly half price!

To my knowledge this is not a 'pre-reg', its not an import and it doesn't require a finance deal to be taken out at the same time.

The only catch is it requires 'swappage' to get at this price http://www.vauxhall.co.uk/offers-finance/offer_types/swappage.html

ever tried sitting in one of these?

bloody awful

focus is tons better.
#3
Not sat in a new one, but have a 2005 Astra and scrumpypaul's comment is spot on.
Uncomfortable seats and poor driving position compared to the Focus.
Perhaps the new one is better?
Also got to say the visibility (as in most modern cars) is bl**dy awful.

Got a 1.6 petrol this year, really poor return on the MPG, well under 20 MPG urban, overall only 30 MPG that includes alot of motorway driving.
#5
Not 100% but I think it's the old shape (10.5 - sat in a car park for a few years job)
#6
Astra's list price is 17K!?! Seems a bit much.
#7
Not voting either way but I would urge anyone to check out the Focus (even 2nd hand ones) as they are:
1. More comfortable to sit in (especially with 3 adults (just) in the back)
2. Much better fuel economy (real, not claimed - see reviews from various sources)
3. Build quality - Focus feels stronger and better fitted together (try closing the doors on both)

Personal point of view (I tested both and obvious which one I chose!)
#8
Looks a great deal, voted hot.
I dont understand the focus comments arent they 6 or so grand more.

I think you might be right. I was trying to find the details and could only bring up the older models...
#10
Price includes swappage discount? So you need a car to trade in then...?
#11
I'm quite sure this is the old model, they don't have the 'Active' trim on the new model. Still not a bad price though.

good saving, but i wouldn't get another vauxhall again after my dads cavalier, then astra, then vectra... VW all the way now!
#13
More GM massively discounted tat like the Chevvie deal. You get what you pay for in this case
#14
The new vauxhall astra looks like the SEAT Leon from the back, I know which one i'd rather have :)

I wouldn't touch an Astra myself, heard horror stories, I would touch a corsa but the new shape is fugly

Decent price though, can't fault it
#15
It'll definitely be the old model - I've seen several dealer adds for them at similar prices.

There's something wrong there (unless you do lots of short trips from cold) - I've had Astra 1.6's as hire cars and easily got over 40mpg+ on A-roads/motorways, and 30+ round town.


Would agree with others that the Focus is better to drive, just a shame about their archaic 1.6/1.8 engines - the turbos in the next update can't come soon enough.

blimey I fail to believe you, you must be gunning it down at 90+ people buy Vauxhall for good mpg otherwise you might as well buy an audi or bmw
#17
£17, 260 list price for this car is just laughable.

£9k is what its worth really - they arent bad cars - Astra has improved significantly in recent years and would this one come with their new 100k warranty??

Decent deal but would love to know how many they had sold at the 17k price :)
#18
I have a 2006 Astra, and i love it, much better than the equivalent peugeot, citroen, renault, and maybe even the VW golf (considering the price and what you get)

in the last 3 years ive had NO problems, and for the price i got leather seats, trip computer, alloys, at the time it would have cost me about £2k more to go for a golf of the same year and without the leather seats, trip comp, alloys.

only slight downside, with a 1.6i petrol twinport engine, i get about 29 mpg on city roads and max 46/47 mpg on the motorway.
#19
Absolutely no way someone would be able to sell Astra for £17k!!!!!

Sounds like a good deal, but I would not want Vauxhall if they paid me for it.
They are very uncomfortable unless you go for the highest spec.
#20
I get about 36 MPG on my commute to work 50% motorway in a 1.6 I bought new in 2008. If I drive constantly watching the MPG and doing 60 in the slow lane; I can just about push to 39 MPG combined.

My wife's Active 1.4 (which we got new for £8,000 last December using scrappage discount) gets about 38/39 MPG when driving normally and not MPG watching.

£8,000 - £9,000 is a reasonable price for this car. Of course there are better cars out there, but for this price? maybe not. Good find.
I wish my 1.6 model had been as cheap as this :(

£9k isn't a bad price for a brand new car from an established manufacturer. I've done a hell of a lot of research into new / used cars this last month as we've just changed ours. We went for a Kia C'eed due to being really impressed by the build quality, specs and massive warranty. However, ours is a year old and we paid close on £8k, hence my belief that if you are in the market for an Astra, the op has to be given credit for finding a good deal.
#22
I have to agree the list price is a joke

Hmm,plenty of badge snobs here.....as for the£17,000 quips....have a look at some other cars...i'm certain the focus is not for sale at the price some of the peeps are thinking here....nor any others they want to check.....astra has been one of the bestsellers for years....so they must be crap?
#26
I purchased a Honda Jazz under scrappage for £10k this year. I get 54 mpg around town and down the motorway at 80 mph. On a long run (350 miles) using motorways at 60 to 70 mph i recorded 60.8 mpg.

My OH has a three year old Corsa (1.3 Diesel) and I have to say, it's the worst car I have ever driven. The turbo kicks in far too late and the seats are crap - so uncomfortable. Looks wise, it's fine, but drive wise, horrible. Compare it to my boring looking 05 Focus and their is no question as to which is better... My old Y reg Fiesta (sadly written off in a crash) was a far better car than the Corsa could ever wish to be...

£17k for a 1.4 Astra Lol
List price is a load of crap you will never pay list price for a car never.

Not a bad deal but i hate it when they make up savings like that.

also bought a car in the scrappage, except we got a peug 207 ... and it is total ****. I keep nagging the missis about trading it in. paid £7,895 for it .. 5 door, met black and it is the urban spec....

I could push a wheel barrow faster than it. the mpg is awful. 30 combined at best and thats if you drive very very conservative.

Just a note about Astra being best sellers recently. You have to remember that the volume manufacturers Vauxhall, Ford et al MASSIVELY discount the price to attract fleet buyers.

Owning a 2005 Astra, my notes (in no particular order are):

Pros:
- 1.7 (80) diesel unit comfortably returns 50mpg on my commute to work. 55-60 mpg on a longer run.
- Massive depreciation means bargain to buy second hand.
- Cheap parts and servicing
- Reliable
- Safe. 5 start Euro NCAP award.

Cons:
- Uncomfortable seats
- Poor driving position
- Restricted visibility (not as bad on estate). Although this is true of most modern cars (would like to see them knock a start off the Euro NCAP score for this).
- Dull to drive
- So-so image (although at least not as bad as Audi/BMW bell-end cars).
- Turbo lag (on diesels)
- Indicators (got used to them in the end - just don't like 'em)

I think most people seem to be under the illusion that you can get this car for £9k - you can't.

Unless you have a car to trade-in. Its a bit like saying get a new VW Golf for £3k (if you trade in lasts years model).

Here are details of the swappage

How to qualify:

Your vehicle must be at least seven years old (from date of first registration in the UK) at the time you place your order for a new Vauxhall
Your vehicle must be insured, road-taxed and have a current MOT (or one that has expired no earlier than 14 days prior to the new vehicle order date)
You or your spouse/partner living at the same UK address must have been the registered keeper of the vehicle continuously for at least the last 90 days.

17k for astra lol even at 9k its doesn't seem that good a deal. Seems like the people at the top of vauxhall are determined to run it into the ground, I give them 5 years before they do a rover.
#34
For 8-9k you can get a not so very old Skoda Octavia vRS. Having owned the current model and the last model I know were my money would be going. Brand new is not always best
#35
Does this qualify for the Vauxhall 1st owner 100,000 mile warranty ?
If so, that would heat the deal up a little.

Personally I'd look elsewhere, but if you are determined to buy a new car, you could do a lot worse than this deal and for some people it would be a good choice.

Bit of a boy-racermobile though, which is not really comparable to this low-spec, low insurance group Astra.

I would prefer to describe it as a quick family saloon 8) If you want the slower one then the sport with a comfy 140bhp diesel and low insurance grouping is a bargain. currently got a new mazda 3 sport diesel (185) and it ain't as good as the skoda. A bit sloppy on the ride/brakes and not as well built.

Decent enough cars but terrible dealers.

very true. Used approved repairers instead via leaseplan. Miles better

Not 100% but I think it's the old shape (10.5 - sat in a car park for a few years job)

The picture on the link is the new shape.

I urge anybody thinking of buying a Focus to talk to somebody who owns one to make sure they find out where to get their comfy slippers and comfy cardies from. Think carefully before you end up getting your holiday garb from Cotton Traders.

Mine's an Alfa GT Q2 Cloverleaf and it's been more reliable than the three Focus' my colleagues own. I still laugh at one who has to switch it on and off when he loses power. The other who needs an new exhaust after 20,000 miles. The other with multiple electrical problems.
