Vauxhall has revealed prices for the facelifted Astra.
The updated car will start at £18,885 for the hatchback, with the estate costing from £20,355.
Those figures make the refreshed Astra slightly cheaper than the outgoing model, despite a pile of extra technology being added.
The new range tees off with a three-cylinder 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine in 108bhp, 128bhp and 143bhp guises.
All are mated to a six-speed manual gearbox and achieve between 51.4mpg and 54.3mpg on the new and more accurate WLTP test cycle.
The diesel range is now made up entirely of three-cylinder engines. A 1.5 litre unit is available with 104 or 120bhp – the more powerful can be linked to a new nine-speed automatic gearbox.
Since the current Astra was released in 2015, ownership of Vauxhall has been transferred from General Motors to PSA – parent company of Peugeot and Citroen.
The updated Astra still rides on underpinnings developed by GM – it will be the next all-new generation that gets a PSA chassis.
That’s no bad thing, however, as the current Astra rides and handles more than adequately.
The refreshed model features improved technology, including a new digital speedometer and a smarter, faster and more intuitive infotainment system. Connectivity is also improved, with sat nav featuring real-time traffic information and online map updates.
The screen for the infotainment system has also been upgraded. Smartphone users can use Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Styling-wise, the updated Astra has a new headlight design, revised grille and restyled front bumper. At the rear, the subtle changes continue with a slightly tweaked rear-light design and reshaped rear bumper.
The new Astra will continue to be built in the UK, though PSA warns no deal Brexit could see production move to Europe. Deliveries start in November.
