The 2017 Holden Astra sedan will form an important cog in the Australian company's attempts to recover lost ground following the end of local manufacturing. It might just be the sweet spot in the range too.

2017 Holden Astra RS-V review

I have always liked the Astra, I have owned the Opel Astra previously but have needed to upgrade to a car with an automatic gear box, as I am not getting any younger and do a lot of city driving. I looked around on car sites for a used Astra after I had tried my luck at a dealer. However they didn't have a used RS-V - only the RS and even they were quite expensive...

2020 Holden Astra R review

Holden's 2020 Astra R - the last of its kind - surprises in many ways, and provides plenty of value for those in the market for a budget hatchback. Concerns over the longevity of support for these vehicles will undoubtedly rank front and centre for buyers of this car, but there will always be some kind of sacrifice at this price-point...

2017 Holden Astra RS review

In 2017 I decided I wanted to upgrade from my 2014 Ford Focus Trend manual. After owning a few mainstream hatches I knew I wanted another hatch, but this time with a bit more oomph from in the powertrain. My shortlist was the Golf and the Astra. Initially I was interested in the 1.4-litre turbo R+ which had some welcomed safety additions and enough poke for city and freeway driving...

2005 Holden Astra CDX review

The 2005 Holden Astra CDX AH really is worth its bang considering it's 13 years old. I bought the Astra as my first car when I moved interstate and picked her up with 182,000km for $5600. I wasn’t looking for anything in particular, just a car that was in reasonable condition, and anything but the Toyota Echo or the Holden Barina...

2006 Holden Astra CDX review

A Note from the Editor: A stock image has been supplied with this review. I know most will be reviewing a later-model car, but I've had my Astra for nearly 12 years now, and as far as I am concerned it is a very good car. I upgraded from a TS Astra and the AH is a much better car in many respects...

2017 Holden Astra RS-V review

Holden Astra RS-V – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly General Motors Australia has been a mixed bag for decades. Consistency has not been a strong suit with Australian-delivered models merely being rebadged versions of other GM products. Being an avid European car enthusiast, the Astra always piqued my interest having rolled out of GM Opel’s factories...

2007 Holden Astra SRi review

Our other car had just suddenly and completely died, which put pressure on both our budget and time. The brief was to get a car with a practical boot size and we could only stump up about $15,000. I love to drive, but with just $15K to play with and living in a 'remote' area, I didn't fancy my chances...

2017 Holden Astra LT review

I purchased my 2017 Holden Astra LT Sportwagon in November 2017. It replaced a 2013 Mitsubishi ASX Aspire diesel. I sold the SUV because of the service costs associated with the vehicle, plus its rather agricultural ride and the fact it wasn't particularly frugal or practical for my need for an urban runabout. What can I say? I was a me-too SUV buyer...

2016 Holden Astra R review

Astra la vista baby. Yes, tested here is the 2017 Holden Astra R manual, the newest iteration of the Astra family launched in Australian showrooms in November 2016. Starting with design, the Astra has always been a good-looking car and this generation is no different. In base-model ‘R’ form, it really looks quite the package...

2016 Holden Astra RS review

I traded-in my much loved VE SS Commodore and bought the RS Astra. While there is a huge difference in power output, I absolutely love the Astra, especially in Sports mode. Power-to-weight ratio certainly makes up for the difference. We bought the SS for the long trips from north Queensland to NSW. And now the Astra is more than capable of handling these long trips...

2005 Holden Astra Classic Equipe Review

The car drives great and handles well. I've noticed great fuel performance and ease when it comes to driving start stop all the time. Only flaw is that the paint has faded and seems to be common on this model of car. The air-con is really cold as well. Love the boot space of the car and think that the sedan should of been continued but in the newer style...
