    New Astra Puts The Boot In



    was really impressed with the storage elements designed into this car. Itís something that the designers have clearly thought about really carefully, and thereís a lot of innovative ideas throughout the car that really work. Itís pretty inspiring the attention to detail involved.

    One thing, while weíre at the back, thatís worth mentioning, is the way the boot works. The new Astra has a sort of secret floor built into the trunk, which means you can stow away your laptop, or stash the cash, and any other valuables out of sight without worrying. The difference here is that the booty in the boot is not just hidden from passers by, but youíd actually have to be a pretty clever thief to discover it even if you had the rear door open and your torch on highbeam.


    The feature isnít just a crime deterrent, itís also designed to work as a shelf so that you can more effectively stack the balance of your load.

    I was really impressed with this on Saturday. Think false floor for ICE or ICE and still a useable boot. It can sit at various heights as well, really good and useful day to day

    and as was found out by accident, if used as pictured above then it can be used as a load restraint to stop smaller loads ie a few shopping bags rolling around the boot and emptying themselves.
