Vauxhall Astra – 916,714

The Astra has always chased the Escort and latterly the Focus for sales, but it has never quite managed to catch up. The 1991-'98 Astra Mk3 line-up did feature some desirable models, including the GSi and convertible, but it's remembered for being worthy but dull. The fast ones were powered by the legendary 2.0-litre XE 16v engine, but they weren’t quite as lairy or exciting as the '80s GTE 16V predecessor. 1998 saw a new generation of Astra which was produced until 2004.

We had Rover 820 (Automatic) 1993 Engine capacity 1994 cc
Bought new (ish)
Gave first class usage ;until scrapped in around 2014.Mileage about 80000 miles.
It was used as a multi trip vehicle ; pulling a trailer (often containing full beer barrels - about 6 to 8)
with 3 adults .
It had for its day about one of the best acceleration around and could compete with vehicles 10 to 15 years younger
Stylish - really the classic shape.
