    I would go for the coupe as it will hold its money better than the hatch. Both great cars though

    Performance will be the same on both, toys wise if it's a early sri it won't have electric mirrors I believe everything else will be the same though

    As for looks, you can possibly see what i picked

    I was going to get a 1.8 hatch a while ago and i never even thought of the coupe until i worked in a vaux dealership over the summer, the coupe just hits you as a stunning car, you see so many hatches every day and the coupe is much less common. Needless to say i'm looking for one at the moment

    I looked a a hatch and a coupe - ended up with a hatch.

    It's all down to personal choice and as much as I love the coupe, for what I need a hatch is more practical.

    Coupe. LOADS of 1.8s around, so don't pay sticker price.

    I'm going throught the same Choice mate! I just got an Insurance quote for the 1.8 Astra Coupe and SRi Hatch i couldnt afford the SRi hatch for a few more years but the Coupe for some reason is working out at the same price a year as My SRi Corsa :shock: was totally shocked at that like, I could afford my insurance on the corsa, the repayments and running costs (went through fuel like a 1,8 anyways) so i wont be puttin myself in too much trouble with a Coupe!

    And prices are coming down i heard of a 2001 Astra 1.8 Bertone Coupe in black totally standard with just under 30K on the clock going for around £6-7k not sure on how true that story is but fingers crossed it is
