When you think of the Vauxhall Astra, do you think luxury?
It is expected if you don’t but Hippo Leasing want to change that view with the great selection of Vauxhall Astra Elites we have in stock now. The most luxurious Astra on offer today, the Elite has plenty to offer drivers that the normal Astra does not. If you are looking for a luxurious family hatchback, read on and discover exactly what the Elite can offer you!
What does the Astra Elite have to offer?
The Astra Elite we have in stock is the 1.6-litre 16V Elite 5DR boasting a 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, which produces 115 bhp, giving it a top speed of 118 mph. It soars smoothly from 0-60mph in 10.9 seconds, thanks to the engine being paired with a six-speed manual gearbox.
In terms of fuel consumption, the Elites on offer deliver a combined fuel economy of 43.5 mpg. If you are more of a city driver, you will receive an urban fuel economy of 33.6 mpg, whilst those of you who head to the motorway on a daily basis have an extra-urban fuel economy of 53.3 mpg.
Inside the Elite
The Astra Elite is known for being the most luxurious option available in the Astra range and means also you get an updated interior. In the Elite, you are treated to piano-black plastics on the dashboard surrounded by soft-to-touch materials.
With a minimalist, jet black interior, the Elite features plush dark seats, upgraded by additional leatherette touch throughout the car, growing the overall modern vibe.
The infotainment system in the Elite is the top-of-the-range 900 IntelliLink, working through an eight-inch touchscreen with a built-in sat-nav. It is also compatible with Android Auto and Apple Carplay, ensuring you can stream your music and use other apps whilst on the move.
For passengers in the Elite, you are in for a treat. Front passengers receive extra support on long journeys, thanks to electrical lumbar support on both front seats and the option of ventilated front seats to avoid sticking to the leather. The driver’s seat is fully adjustable and can come with a massage function. The space in the back for passengers is great, fitting three adults well, although the middle passenger may have to raise with legs slightly due to a small hump on the floor.
In the boot of the Elite, you will receive a basic boot capacity of 370-litres. However, if you are looking for more space, you can drop those rear seats and increase the capacity to 1,210-litres.
Astra has always been well known for their comfort and handling and that is the same with the Elite model. Thanks to the suspension system, you barely feel any bump or hole on the road when travelling at normal speeds.
It handles well in the corners, so you have no need to take them like a snail. Every corner and twist can be taken at normal speed with the level of grip and lack of body roll holding the Astra in place. It is also safe with the Euro NCAP giving the Astra Elite a five-star rating.
