From its pedigree in touring car racing to its presence in popular culture, the Vauxhall Astra, is not just a compact car; it has become a part of automotive history. Making its debut on British roads and quickly becoming Britain’s second most popular small car in 1980, the Astra is now in its eighth generation. It has undergone several facelifts, each bringing new updates and improvements in technology, fuel efficiency, and safety features.
Today, the Vauxhall Astra continues to command attention on the road. Known for its agile handling and advanced engineering, this iconic vehicle sets the bar high in its category. Its famous tagline, ‘Once driven, forever smitten,’ encapsulates the trust and recognition it has garnered over the years.
• Guinness World Record: In 2015, a Vauxhall Astra set a Guinness World Record for the fastest average speed in a car over 24 hours. The car averaged 125 mph at the Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire.
• Convertible Versions: While the Astra is commonly known as a practical family car, it has also been available in a convertible version, known as the Astra TwinTop. This variant offered a more stylish and leisure-oriented aspect of the Astra.
