The Vauxhall Astra has been around for years, now in its seventh generation it looks and drives better than ever. The body is sleeker on the outside yet just as roomy on the inside plus it drives like a dream. The new version is fully kitted up and the tech is award winning so if that’s what floats your boat be sure to check it out. It’s got plenty of space plus it won’t break the bank with its running costs. Overall this British made car is top notch.
If you’re after a car that is spacious but doesn’t compromise on style or substance then this could be the car for you. Best of all, you can bag yourself a new Vauxhall Astra with a low deposit and free insurance, discounted insurance or cashback.
The new-look Astra is slimmer than its predecessors giving it a leaner, sportier look. What's more, because there’s less bulk it’s also a better ride - it’s firm but comfortable and is refined so it should be a smooth cruise down the motorway. The Astra handles well and is responsive making light work of parking in tight spaces. Overall this is a fab car to drive both around town and out on the open road.
This innovative car is more practical and comfortable than ever. The best part? All of the amazing features of the new Astra won't break the bank to own or run.
The new Astra cuts CO2 emissions by up to 19% from previous models, and has lower fuel consumption too! It's the most efficient Astra to date!
The interior, like the exterior has been updated with sleek new designs, but it’s the kit that sets the Astra apart. The dash is dominated by a seven inch touchscreen with DAB, Bluetooth and USB. There’s also the cool Apple Play connectivity system and Android Auto, depending on which type of smartphone you have.
Vauxhall’s clever Onstar navigation and concierge system is included with high spec models or you can opt for this on lower versions. This amazing bit of kit can do everything from helping you find a destination and sending it to your car to calling the emergency services automatically in a crash. It also contains a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot so your friends can browse online from your car.
Despite the Astra’s new slimmer exterior, the space inside hasn’t been compromised. There’s enough room for a tall driver upfront – and plenty of room in the back for lanky mates! The boot is cavernous at 370 litres with a cleverly ribbed floor to stop all your bits and pieces rolling around.
Astra received five stars in the Euro NCAP crash test. There’s additional safety systems if you opt for the Driving Assistance Pack including automatic emergency braking to help prevent crashing into the car in front at low speeds and a lane departure warning.
What is a guarantor?
A guarantor is someone who formally guarantees to pay the finance if the young driver is unable to make the repayments. Before agreeing to become a guarantor for young driver, it is important you check that you would be able to afford the repayments (if they fail to pay the finance instalments), as non-payment pay could affect both yours, and their, credit score and result in repossession of the car.
How does the insurance work?
We offer you a personalised quote based on your age and postcode and the majority of our customers really do get free insurance. We know it's a big outlay buying and insuring your first car. We developed this offer to help ease the pain during what's probably going to be your most expensive year of car insurance – whilst you build up that first year's all important no claims bonus. Our insurance is underwritten by Highway Insurance (part of the Liverpool Victoria Group)
How long until I get my new car?
Good question. It depends on the car you're after and how far you want to go customising it! If you want your car delivered ASAP give us a call on 0333 358 3441 to find out what's available now. If you've got your heart set on a certain colour or upgrade the car may have to be made to order. Whatever your circumstances, our friendly team can talk you through timescales for the different options – and we'll keep you posted on progress until it's delivered.
What is the benefit of adding a guarantor to my finance application?
If you're aged under 21, you're unlikely to have built up much credit history, so approval will be based on your personal circumstances. Having a guarantor increases your chance of being approved - thus allowing you to start building up your credit score.
What happens after the first year?
We'll send you a renewal price, but you don't have to take it and if you can find a more suitable policy somewhere else you can move your insurance (we'll miss you though!)
