Does it represent good value for the price? What features does it come with?
The three-tier Astra sedan line-up kicks off with the LS spec that lists for $20,490 if you opt for the manual gearbox, or $21,490 for the automatic. Standard features at this level include 16-inch alloy wheels, auto headlights, a 7.0-inch touch screen with reversing camera, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and rear parking sensors.
There’s an LS+ grade for another $1250 which adds advanced safety equipment, LED running lights and a leather steering wheel.
The $25,790 LT gets all of the LS+ features and adds 17-inch alloys, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, proximity unlocking, auto parking, sat nav and rain-sensing wipers.
At the top of the range, the $29,790 LTZ has all of the above but gets 18-inch alloy wheels, sunroof, climate control and heated leather front seats.
Depending on the grade, the hatch costs $1000 to $2000 more than the sedan.
