    Astra H - SRi or Design?

    Hi,

    Looking at getting a 1.9 CDTi 16v Mk5 three door (the 150bhp one) and have noticed that the Design is an insurance group lower than the SRi.

    I was under the impression that the design was a higher spec car? What does the SRi have that the design doesn't, and which would you recommend?

    Cheers

    Rob

    SRi should have the full XP Kit and 18 inch Penta alloys.

    The SRI is the sporty model in the range but one of the most basic. You dont get alot on the inside. The Design comes with a load more goodies as standard and has half leather interior. Best advise is to go and compare the spec lists of both and then drive them both. Jxx

    XP and Pentas were/are an optional extra, so you could find any model with the kit on.

    As above really, the XP pack was an option so not all sri's have it fitted.

    The SRI comes with normal cloth interior, a sport button, different alloy wheels, spoiler, leather steering wheel amongst a few other things

    The design comes with half leather seats, auto headlight, auto wipers, auto dip rear view mirror, piano black dash inserts, leather steering wheel, and obv different alloy wheels.

    I myself might be more tempted by the design as you can fit everything else to it and turn it into a rep SRI but have more equipment as standard!

    Yes the design comes with a few more toys but all those toys are still available for the sri as i have the sight and light pack in mine.....it will all depend on if your buying brand new, as like said if you look enough you can find a Sri with the same stuff as the design.......and as far as im aware if you forget about the toys the difference is all in the suspension....design is the comfy type the Sri is more ridgid and sporty

    you could add all the design spec to the club spec if you wanted to, but it depends on what you get as standard
