Go Vauxhall have released this offer...
I know every car gets slated on HUKD but I think this is a scorcher of a price....

Vauxhall Astra 1.6 Manual Limited Edition New/RRP is: £18,535

However the SALE / Pre-registered price: £11,995.

Obviously it will be limited stock as they are already pre-registered. However, at time of posting, they have at least several, if not into the tens.

Discount: £6,540 against new.
Mileage varies from 5-20 or so miles.
I just got mine & apparently they are selling very very fast....

Above and beyond the very basic specs...

Key features include:
• 19-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels
• Sports style front bumper, body colour front upper grille, side sills and rear lower skirt
• LED daytime running lights
• Chrome-effect exterior side window surround
• Mobile phone system with Bluetooth®
• USB connection with iPod control
• Logic cloth seat trim with Morrocana trimmed side bolsters
• Three-spoke leather-covered sports steering wheel
• Air conditioning
• Cruise control
• Steering wheel mounted audio controls
• Heated front seats

They think they are the best prices in England from a main Vauxhall dealership. I would tend to agree, if not incredibly close.

Ta OP. Voted hot.

I have a Vauxhall (bought from new) and although it has never let me down, since they dropped the 100,000 mile 'lifetime' warranty I wouldn't buy another new/nearly new.

Forget the RRP, £12k is about what it's worth before haggling further.

19 inch alloys wheels as standard.

Also OP, do these come with leather seats as standard?

Yes.
The limited edition (i.e. this car) does come with leather seats as standard.

I do agree with the other poster that you can always haggle from the RRP, but I really don't think you'll be able to buy it at a cheaper price than this (But please post a thread if you can )

EDIT:
Limited Edition...

Additional features over and above
Excite models:
• 19-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels
• Sports style front bumper, body-colour front upper
grille, side sills and rear lower skirt
• Perforated leather seat facings (front and
outer rear seats)
• Heated front seats
• Sports front seats with extendable cushions
• Ergonomic driver’s seat with tilt and four-way
electrical lumbar adjustment
• Three-spoke leather covered sports steering wheel

Here's an Astra brochure where you can view the limited edition...

If you want cheaper sized tyres and can do without leather than the SRi is available for £600 less and it's brand new and not pre-registered.

There's more money to be had off the LE version, just haggle harder, the car is soon to be replaced so should attract bigger discounts.

Yep leather, here's the actual car.

Yuck. This car is both very slow, and very thirsty.

The 1.6 engine is bottom of the range.

0-60 is 10.9 seconds
33.6 MPG (Urban)
54.3 MPG (Extra-Urban)

Certainly not the most fuel efficient, nor particularly fast. Wouldn't go as far as saying Yuck, but then I am slightly bias as I now own one

Thanks for that incredibly insightful observation. Do you have any other pearls of wisdom you could share with us?

Don't forget the new Astra model is now available to order, but not on this offer.

Car is out in the Summer. Good deal to clear out the last of the old design.

New one is this beauty.

Great price but I don't understand why Vauxhall do not put Sat Nav's in as standard in 2015. If I was to buy this, I'd pay an extra £1000 and go for the 1.4 turbo engine but I don't really like Vauxhall. This is still a hot deal for the savings.

Probably worth a test drive, we have this shape astra as company vehicles and they are really heavy on the steering I find which makes them tiring to drive at slow speed, certainly compared to my 12 plate Mondeo estate which is a bigger and heavier car...

Do many car companies fit satnav as standard? BMW have only just announced they will, by the end of this year.

"I have £12000 in my bank account.... I really fancy a vauxhall!!"

Call the men in white coats, quick.

My dad just bought a brand new (not preregistered) Astra 1.4 Excite model.

After haggling managed to get it for £10,500 with a full tank of petrol and mats thrown in.

It will need that full tank too, for the little 1.4 humping around the Astra's weight.

There are listings on Autotrader for a '63' Reg with 15,300 miles on the clock for £10,000. Even if you were to get the '63' reg car down to £9,000 on haggling, it appears to be only £1,000-£1,500/year depreciation - which I think is great for a car. After all, they say it can lose a huge amount of value the moment you drive it off the forecourt.

EDIT: I was referring to haggling on the '63' reg example. The deal on this thread is not going to get any lower, as Sir Charles has pointed out.
Edited by: "Firefly1" 9th May 2015

Don't even bother haggling , these cars are sold at pretty much cost price. I work for another dealer with the same cars - its an easy sell without discounting the car believe me

why buy Vauxhall, can get a better car like a VW Polo/Golf for that price - new Polo S starts from £11,300!

I don't want inbuilt car Sat Nav. Unless it was Google Maps with a live internet connection.

MirrorLink would be the ideal solution, just let me use my phone with the cars screen.

A Polo is in the same class as a Corsa so that's a non comment.
As for a Golf feel free to post a link to one with 19" wheels, full leather and Bluetooth for same price.......I'm waiting.

Why is this in the travel section?????

if you had a choice between Astra or Polo, it has to be Polo every time even without the extra goodies, this car really is not very good, they are rushing the new model because of it. It's so thirsty you will be lucky to get the low 20s never mind the 30 something they claim. And I know polo isn't the same size but hey you want something good to drive and the Astra isn't that

£1500 a year depreciation from new to 2 years old (63 plate is almost 2 years old now)? For that 63 plate to be had off the forecourt for £9000, someone probably got offered £7500 max in p/x, so as the owner of that car, you'll have suffered a lot more depreciation than sticker price new to sticker price used.

Sorry I was referring to the Astra - he said Vauxhall depreciation must be huge, so I found an Astra for sale just to find out. However you make a good point You could sell it privately though, instead of p/x.

I have driven a Polo and "good to drive" is not the words I'd use, in fact a Kia C'eed is a better car to drive, better equipped and cheaper with a longer warranty.

19" Wheels + Low profile tires + Vauxhall suspension + UK pot holed roads. Not a nice experience. Especially if you have to experience it every time you drive it.
