I had a look at the reviews of both the Astra MK4 and 5 on parkers website. The Mk4 had a slightly higher score. I wonder if the better score is down to it actually being a better car or just better considering its price and age. It makes me wonder how the MK4 and the Ford Focus 1998 compare to newer cars on the market when you don't take price, value or age into consideration.
