Vauxhall Astra available in several fuel types
When thinking about which fuel type to buy, it's important to consider your driving habits. Do you tend to drive in the city or on open roads and motorways? How many miles do you drive in an average week? If your car is mainly used for short trips or in the city, the best fit for you would probably be electric or petrol cars.
If you tend to drive longer distances, we recommend diesel. It’s worth noting that diesel engines with high emissions are banned from entering cities in certain countries.

The black colour is popular for good reason. It's beautiful, classic and elegant. However, the colour also has some disadvantages. For example, it’s easier to spot scratches and dents on a black car than it is on lighter shades. On top of that, black cars tend to get quite warm during the summer.
You can get the current generation of Vauxhall Astra in 8 different colours and they are black, silver, red, grey, white, blue, green and brown.
