Vauxhall Astra interior

Compared to alternatives, the Vauxhall Astra cabin is well-appointed and equipped. But it can feel a bit dark.

Style

The all-new Opel Astra

The Astra’s interior is neat and clean. It isn’t on a par with luxury brands, but it more than holds its own against Ford and Volkswagen.

While there are buttons below the infotainment screen and on the steering wheel, the less important ones are now buried into the infotainment system, which helps declutter the interior.

There are lots of premium-feel, soft-touch surfaces. The steering wheel itself looks funky, while the range of colours on the inside is attractive, if a little on the dark side. Mind you; this is broken up with some silver materials in places. Some glossy piano black décor makes the centre console stand out, too. Meanwhile, the infotainment screen is housed in a single unit next to the same-sized digital display, giving the cabin a futuristic appearance.

The dashboard curves around to face the driver, which is helpful and adds to the cockpit-like feel. If you’re a wannabe fighter pilot, you’ll love it. And if you’re not, then you’ll nevertheless appreciate the convenience and informative displays.

Infotainment

The all-new Opel Astra

The Astra’s infotainment screen can be used to adjust all manner of things. It is exclusively touchscreen, so there’s no rotary dial by the gear lever like you get on some cars, but the screen is responsive, clear, and well laid out, making it easy to use.

You can change radio stations, make phone calls, adjust air conditioning (including the direction of airflow), set up the navigation and view the energy consumption figures (beneficial on the hybrid). Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity comes as standard with smartphone mirroring, too. 

The system also boasts voice recognition for hands-free driving, meaning you can speak normally to it, and it’ll know what to do. For example, you can tell it you’re cold, and it’ll turn the heater on. Of course, systems like these do have their limitations, but it works reasonably well.
