    Astra H boot - opinions

    I really like the look and style of the new Astra H but its just the back end that puts me off!. Why does the boot recess so far in2 the rear?.
    Does any1 else think this or is it just me!.

    Yeah, where the bootlid meets the bumper is too deep, and on the sporthatch the rear lights look too pointy.

    Just new styling - you'll get used to it !


    also a handy edge to rest things on before lugging into the boot !

    I never used to like the boot on them either but its really growing on me. Still the biggest let down of the mk5 though IMO...
    Do love the sporthatch though, not at all fussed on the 5 door, dont like the white tail lights either, on the sporthatch theyre clear
    Agree with MattR32, do think the Estates are smart...

    Yes my mk5 5 door does have a big arse and looks a little odd but its still one of the best cars i've ever owned 18 months and 36k it hasn't put a foot wrong, could be a little more frugal but thats down to my lead right foot , could be time to sell soon but i'd still have another
