Astra is a model name that has been used by Vauxhall, the British subsidiary of Adam Opel AG, since 1979. The Astra name originated with Vauxhall's 1980 model, although the car had originally been launched almost a year earlier as the Opel Kadett. This model replaced the Vauxhall Viva in the UK, along with some versions of the Chevette. However, the Chevette (itself based on the previous generation Kadett) remained available as a budget alternative for several years afterwards, until the Nova was launched. The Astra was Vauxhall's first model to have front wheel drive and rather confusingly in the British market, both the Kadett and the Astra were sold alongside each other until the consolidation of Opel and Vauxhall dealerships in the early 1980's, when the Opel badged versions were dropped.
This twin top design convertible Astra was first registered on 28th June 2006. The steel roof folds down and becomes a full convertible at the touch of a button. Finished in red with black leather trim, this Astra convertible is equipped with a 1998cc turbocharged engine and has the performance to match its sporty aesthetics. Given our unpredictable weather, this versatile convertible offers the best of both worlds.
