Vauxhall Astra (2009) reader spyshot

Published: 26 November 2008

CAR Online reader Gary Bray spotted next year's new Vauxhall Astra on test at altitude recently. These photos were taken on reputedly the highest road in Spain at Sierra Nevada, near Granada.

Although Vauxhall has issued a teaser sketch of the new Astra and its Insignia-esque makeover, Gary's pictures give a really good look at the new hatchback.

Look past the chequerboard disguise and you'll have a good view of the new five-door.
