Vauxhall has announced specs and prices for the revised version of its Astra lower-medium car.
Seven equipment grades will be available: SE, Business Edition Nav, SRi, SRi Nav, SRi VX Line Nav, Elite Nav and Ultimate Nav.
All the above will be available as a five-door hatchback, while SE, Business Edition Nav and SRi Nav will also come as an estate.
Standard equipment with SE grade includes a 7in touchscreen, air conditioning and cruise control. Business Edition Nav will add features including sat-nav and a leather steering wheel.
The sporty SRi grade comes without sat-nav, but gains features including a front camera system, sports front seats and LED headlights. The SRi Nav adds navigation back in.
SRi VX Line Nav gets further equipment including 18in alloys and front foglights with gloss black surround.
The more luxury-focused Elite Nav grade gets equipment including: an 8in touchscreen, 8in digital instrument cluster, climate control, a heated steering wheel and heated front and rear seats. And range-topping Ultimate Nav spec gets features including a Bose sound system, heated windscreen and wireless charging.
