Good Points
speed,comfort and styling.

General Comments
I have had my vauhxall astra van 2.0 tdi sportive for 6 months from new, it is supurb! much like a car to drive, and being the sportive it has the air conditioning.

I really cannot find fault with it yet. I had a Ford Escort before and the differnce in speed is just amazing weather its fully loaded or not.

I wasn't to worried about load capacity but I don't think its much differnt in load carrying every day use to the escort. I am an electrician so it does carry a generator, cable, tools and so on so it can be quite a load. At 6.0ft I also find it very comfortable on long journeys.

The standard CD radio is also very good also in my view no other van in its class looks as good.

I had mine for 2 years now and my back is gone. The sports seats are completely useless the worst ever, the steering can't be adjusted the seats don't move far enough, its very loud inside. Very poor van if you have to drive for any distance. 100 bhp from 2 L engine is laughable
