2008 4dr Hatch 138-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed manual FWD

My Astra has the panoramic sunroof, which I can honestly say was a large portion of the reason I chose to test drive this car in the first place. Even with the glass closed the roof let's so much light into the car it makes it seem much more "roomy" then it really is and also allowed me to get fairly dark tints, while still being able to let plenty of light into the car. I also have the six CD changer, which pumps out a decent signal and, when paired with the steering wheel controls and large center dash screen, gives the car a much more expensive feel.
