IMPORTANT: Read the information at the bottom of this page before going ahead with any car purchase.

If you’re looking for an affordable medium car, the Astra is a sound choice thanks to discounts of up to 28% on brand new models. We’ve rounded up three of the best deals online.

The Vauxhall Astra is regularly close to the top of the best-selling car list in the UK, but you can still find discounts of more than £5,500 with a little searching. The Astra has a roomy cabin, comfortable seats and a high quality finish. It isn’t as much fun to drive as its Ford Focus nemesis though, which is available with similar hot car deal discounts.

Astra buyers can choose from the spacious five-door model or the chic coupe-style three-door GTC. With everything from affordable fuel-efficient models to a raucous 276bhp hot hatchback model available, you should be able to find something to suit your needs and budget.

Hot Car Deal hunters please note:

  • The car brokers and deals featured are not vetted, endorsed or recommended by Which?. Always check the specifics of the deal so you know exactly what you are getting and who is supplying the car. Make sure all aspects of the deal are confirmed in writing before committing to buy.
  • Not all brokers deal in UK sourced vehicles, and this may have an impact on standard equipment and warranty levels.
  • The term ‘pre-reg’ or ‘pre-registered’ refers to vehicles that are brand new but already registered with the DVLA. This means that you will appear as the second owner on the V5 registration document. 
  • Beware of unscrupulous brokers who tell you they will have to retain the V5 registration document for a period of time after your purchase of the car. Vehicles sold this way may be cheap, but there are legal implications, including the risk that you the buyer could be committing a criminal offence when you drive the car, so they should be avoided.
