The Vauxhaull Astra MK6 2012 1.6L Petrol is a great car. combined MPG of 44MPG (Achievable) , if you do motorways you can reach 50 MPG easily.
The new shape is great and the interior looks even better.
The car is very very comfortable to drive besides the experience is quite enjoyable.
Parts are cheap and Road tax is £155 .
I love t his car. If you want a roomy hatchback that won't break the bank go for a Vauxhaull Astra any model starting from 2012. Just make sure its Euro 6 compliant to avoid the #ULEZ that will be introduced in London UK starting from 08th April 2019.
Rubbish car I say. it’s temperamental and electronics tend to go haywire for no reason. At some point it registered a fault with the emission sensor and disabled the AC. Then in few days , the fault disappeared and went back to normal. Them few weeks later it restarted then stopped. It seems that the car is possessed.
Average MPG is very mediocre tho. It gives 38MPG at best and to achieve that you will need to drive in the softest way possible.
