2001 Opel Astra Coupe 2.0 turbo from UK and Ireland
This car should put a smile on your face when driven hard.
There condensation in the off side headlamp (common fault)
The seats creek a bit nothing to do with the leather (yet another common fault)
The Astra coupe is a finely balanced sports coupe, the only disappoint is the original retail price £19,500 without any extras. The second hand market is the best place to pick one up.
With GM quoted figure of 152Mph and 0-60 just about in 7 sec, with plenty of aftermarket parts and remaps of the EMU.
In the 3 months I've had my coupe, I have been very happy with either just drive to work or out and about give it a work out.
Having lower suspension than the hatchback/estate and the Bertone designed body this little coupe is eye pleasing.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
