Astra goes even greener

27-Sep-2012

As the table below demonstrates a number of key Astra variants will benefit from improved fuel economy and lower CO2 levels. Whilst the savings from improved fuel economy speak for themselves, other reductions in VED and BiK are perhaps not so obvious. The hatchback 1.7CDTi 16v (110/130PS) ecoFLEX emissions for instance, fall from 122 to 119g/km, with a resulting drop in BiK taxation and second year VED.

 

Similar reductions have been introduced for Astra Sports Tourer. These revisions come into effect for engines built after 8th October 2012.
