Astra 1.6T sedan’s an elegant cruiser

IOL Motoring Opel Astra 1.6T - Image: Jason Woosey.“Even though it leaves a bit of room for improvement, the Astra 1.6T sedan really starts to impress when you stack it up against the other sedans on the market that cost between R250 000 and R300 000.

At R286 900, the Astra is not only one of the few turbo-charged cars, but it’s also the most powerful. Add to that the desirable styling, decent features count, overall comfort and interior practicality and suddenly the Astra starts making a brilliant case for itself. It even costs less than the range-topping Kia Cerato, to put things into perspective.

In fact, if I was laying down my own money for a comfortable and elegant sedan for under R300 000, this would be at the very top of my list – without a doubt.”
