PRICE REDUCTION - £195 Astra 1.9Cdti 150bhp Sportshatch SRi
posted on Jun 23 2009 by Sam Jones
We have secured 50 cars of various colours directly from the manufacturer and are due to arrive within 3 weeks, so no factory order wait. Our long established relationship with Vauxhall and GM General Motors means that we are able to negotiate a bigger discount than many of our competitors because of the quantity of cars we order.
This Vauxhall Astra 1.9 CDTi Sport Hatch is a good 45mm (1.7in) lower than the 5 door hatchback, and with its wider tracks, long wheelbase and more swept-back windscreen, its impressively squat and aggressive.
The Sport Hatch also gets a quicker steering rack and uprated springs and dampers over the five-door model. The rear suspension is also a more compact layout than the multi-link system, allowing the Sport Hatch designers to install a low-slung rear bench to compensate for the sloping roofline. The result is decent headroom for rear passengers and a boot with equal capacity to the five-door.
