2015 Holden Astra pricing and specifications

The Holden Astra is back - and there are several versions that buyers can choose from. The revival of the Holden Astra badge - which finished up in Australia under the Lion brand's guidance in 2009 after five generations - will be welcome by small car buyers, though we saw the Astra sold here in 2013 under the guidance of General Motors brand Opel before it pulled out of the local market...

2008 Holden Astra CDTi Wagon (Diesel)

With desire for diesel cars rising rapidly, GM Holden is working hard to bring more oil burners to the Australian market. We know they are serious too, given the recent announcement that hybrid and diesel variants of the Commodore are only two years away. But if you can't wait that long, Australia's favourite brand has added another model to its growing diesel line-up...

2007 Holden Astra SRi coupe and hatch

Holden's Astra has been one of the lucky cars in the Holden lineup which has not been replaced with a Korean made matchbox. Unlike the Holden Barina (with its 2 star safety rating) the Holden Astra is actually made in Belgium, by Opel. Hence the Astra SRi three and five-door hatch models are not plaughed by the image and safety concerns of their Korean made counterparts...
