Holden Astra 2017

The 2017 Holden Astra range of configurations is currently priced from $11,650. Our most recent review of the 2017 Holden Astra resulted in a score of 7 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Senior Journalist Richard Berry had this to say at the time: The Astra sedan is a different car to the hatch – but then it's really aimed at different people, perhaps more mature ones. I mean, one of the sedan's paint colours, 'Old Blue Eyes', isn't available on the hatch. This could be a hint.

This is what Richard Berry liked most about this particular version of the Holden Astra: Sedan's comfy and composed ride, Hatch's beautiful styling, Aussie tuning for sedan and hatch

The 2017 Holden Astra carries a braked towing capacity of up to 1420 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

Holden Astra 2017 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Astra 2017 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Why does my 2017 Holden Astra jerk when I put it in reverse?

    The jerk when you select reverse sometimes is definitely worth having diagnosed properly as it shouldn’t be that way. Scanning the car (which I’ll presume the dealership did to arrive at its answer) doesn’t always show up all faults, so just because the computer says there’s nothing wrong, doesn’t mean there isn’t. There are plenty of reasons for a car to jerk into a particular gear, but the good news is that the Astra uses a conventional, torque-converter automatic, not one of the vastly more troublesome double-clutch units.

    Your second problem, however, may not be a problem at all. In fact, the gearbox in the Astra is smart enough to know that you’re coasting down a hill and will actually shift down a gear or two to take the strain off the brakes while still maintaining your speed. As it shifts down gears, the engine revs will rise; that’s absolutely normal and part of the way the car is designed to operate.

  • Holden Astra 2017: Should I get an extended warranty?

    If it makes you feel more comfortable then buy it, but I don’t believe it’s necessary.

    Get it now if you do want it.

  • Holden Astra 2017: Can I use 91-octane in the RS variant?

    It’s recommended that you use 95-octane Premium unleaded in the RS, and that’s what I would use. You could damage the engine using 91.
