Holden Astra Reviews

The Holden Astra has had a long and sometimes chequered sales history in Australia, starting life as a rebadged Nissan Pulsar in 1984 before disappearing in 1989 in favour of the short-live Nova.

It returned as a rebadged Opel in 1996, before being discontinued in 2009 - only to come back as an Opel Astra in 2014… before disappearing again in 2015. It returned to the Holden roster full time in 2017, and is again built in Germany by Opel.

Holden has revised the steering for Aussie conditions, and the European suspension tune is surprisingly well suited to local roads. It's currently offered in R, RS and RS-V models.
