The least costly Astra sedan, the Astra LS, comes with 16-inch wheels, cloth seats, manual air-conditioning, and the features supplied with all Astra sedans. A manual gearbox is standard, with auto an extra-cost option
Spend some more and you can have an LS+, which comes with the automatic transmission as standard. The main addition is a suite of active safety aids that look out for you in case your attention strays. It comprises a forward collision alert, forward distance indicator, lane-keeping assistance, and lane departure warning.
You also get leather wrap on the steering wheel, high-beam assist (which automatically dips the headlights when it senses an approaching vehicle) and LED daytime running lights.
Spend more for an Astra sedan LT and you get the LS+ additions plus 17-inch wheels and a rear lip spoiler, which contribute a sportier look. You can unlock an Astra LT and drive away without removing its smart key from your bag or pocket. Windscreen wipers work automatically when it starts raining.
As well, front parking sensors augment those at the rear, and advanced park assist can steer you automatically into a parking spot. The exterior mirrors are heated, to remove frost and misting, and have warning lights to let you know when another vehicle is in your blind spot. Infotainment extras include a larger 8.0-inch touchscreen, digital radio (DAB+), and built-in satellite navigation.
Spending more again for an LTZ brings you more luxury, including an electric sunroof, climate control (which lets you set different ventilation temperatures), leather on the seats and the seats and steering wheel can be heated. The wheels grow to 18 inches, and are wrapped in lower profile tyres for marginally sharper steering and a sportier look. Visual differences include chrome interior highlights and chrome window surrounds.
