Vauxhall has introduced a new low-emitting Astra model called the Ecoflex which puts it into the lowest Vehicle Excise Duty range of only ₤35.00.
The Astra Ecoflex has emissions of under 120g/km using Vauxhall’s 108bhp 1.7 litre CDTi turbo diesel engine and can give 62.8mpg. Vauxhall has made this possible by making various modifications including low-rolling resistance tyres, lower idle speeds for the engine, improved aerodynamics and by tweaking the suspension.
