Vauxhall Astra GTC

It has a unique appearance in the Astra range. Is it cool?

It's an Astra FFS! Uncool.

It doesn't matter if it's quite an attractive Astra, or a powerful one, or fairly desirable as Astras go. It isn't even threatening cool.

Normally in the UK but positioned behind it in some markets.

Looks tacky. (unsurprisingly) That dash is truly honking too.

Uncool.

I like how it looks, and it may be brilliant to drive (or not). But it's a Vauxhall Astra. Telling people you drive an Astra is never going to be cool.

In the group test versus the Giulietta they said the highly raked screen pillars seriously affect seeing where you are going . Not a cool feature.
