Winner of the European Car of the Year, the Astra is packed with tech. Howard Ritchie (HR) who joins Clarkson Hammond and May in the autumn on Drive Tribes, explores the all-British champion and checks out some the cars unique specification.
Including Vauxhall/Opel Apple Car Play, Steering Assist and Anti Collision Warning system demos, the Vauxhall/Opel On Star App, the On Star Concierge and how the new Astra drives.
Certainly it does devalue the used Astra’s somewhat due to the very extensive improvement curve. But as it starts from around £14,000 approximately it’s not going to break the bank.
With special thanks to Cotswold Airport and their delightful sausage rolls and of course David Arnold.
