Which one to go for?
Even if these cars are both called Astra, we think they'll appeal to different people.
The key differences include a bigger engine, more tech and a higher price on the Hatchback version. In our opinion, it will appeal to younger people more when compared to the Astra Sedan. In absolute terms, it's also a step up in terms of refinement on both the interior and exterior.
The Sedan version on the other hand has its own unique differentiators. It's a German car at a very affordable price, it doesn't trade-off on any of the safety features or key features that you expect to get in a car of this price. In our opinion, it would appeal and suit families who want something different than what the Japs or Koreans have to offer. Which one do you think would suit you best and why?
