Posh Astra with the private buyer's engine of choice: Any good?

Advantages: Roomy, excellent refinement, plus interior trim, smooth gearbox
Disadvantages: Miserable engine, wallowy handling, daft equipment specifications, high list price

Vauxhall Astra Elite 1.6i 115bhp What kind of car is it? The Vauxhall Astra itself is a little bit of a hidden gem. It's a name that for decades has invited a snigger from anyone who knows anything even remotely interesting about cars. Thi ...

All the car you'd need

Advantages: Comfortable, well equipped, easy and relaxing to drive, powerful enough, economical
Disadvantages: Slightly out of its depth on fastest lane of motorway, sometimes a teeny bit wide

When looking at the Vauxhall Astra, the first choice would generally not be the 1.4i petrol engine. 1.4 seems like an inordinately small engine for such a large car, even in the 100bhp version which I own. It would be a surprise to many then that this car ...

Sporty, great handler, and doesn't look half bad either!

Advantages: Looks sporty, handles well, satisfactory performance
Disadvantages: Automatic gearbox could be better

Me and a couple of friends were going camping for a long weekend, and instead of taking my clapped out old Peugeot, I thought I'd hire a car. Not to mention, I didn't think that four adults and a weekends worth of camping equipment would fit in a little h ...
