2016 Vauxhall Astra review – new Astra is best yet, but can it excite? - Design
With an excellent engine and an outstanding ride the new Astra has some great attributes, but sadly it isn’t a drivers’ car
As with the dynamics, the outside isn’t very thrilling. It’s not ugly, but it’s also not especially good looking – it’s safe.
It’s distinctly an Astra too. In isolation, it convinces you it’s not that dissimilar to the old model in the way it looks. But spot the two together and the new Astra does look markedly different. Not better or worse, just different.
