Up to £2,200 cheaper than the model it replaces, the compact hatchback will be assembled in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire and will be available in a simplified range encompassing the following trims: Design, Tech Line, Energy, SRi, SRi Nav, Elite and Elite Nav. The base Design model begins at £15,295 which makes it £150 cheaper than the outgoing version and comes with the 3-cylinder 1.0-liter turbo engine developing 105 PS (77 kW). Other engine offerings include a 200 PS 1.6-liter 4-cylinder turbo and a 110 PS 1.6-liter "whisper diesel" which enables the Astra to return 91.1 mpg UK and emit just 82 g/km of CO2.

Even the base model is generously equipped as it has 16-inch alloys, air conditioning, LED daytime running lights, six airbags, cruise control, front & rear electric windows and 7-inch color touchscreen R4.0 IntelliLink infotainment system with support for digital radio, USB, AUX and Bluetooth.
