AUXHALL is laying down the gauntlet to rivals with its new Astra GTC coupe – and as the first pictures show, it’s a real dazzler. With its dramatic design and driver-focused chassis,

the GTC will pull no punches in its challenge to the likes of Volkswagen’s Scirocco and the Renault Megane Coupe. The new car, which makes its debut at next month’s Goodwood Festival of Speed ahead of an

Right car, right price Retro cars have been all the rage since the VW Beetle made its comeback. Here’s how to snap up a stylish bargain

T

HE Volkswagen Beetle had the retro market to itself for a while – that was until the advent of the MINI and Fiat 500. Up to that point if you wanted a car with modern mechanicals but a classic look the Beetle was the only choice. Right down to the vase on the dashboard the Beetle was a very left-field design wrapped up in utterly bog standard (and three generations old) Golf mechanicals. It has just been entirely re-booted though – at the Shanghai motor show VW revealed a new Beetle. Based on the current Golf chassis with that car’s range of engines and gearboxes, the new design drags the Bug into the 21st century. Trouble is though, it looks almost exactly the same as the last model. It is going to start at around £20,000 and there’s no vase on the dashboard anymore. The whole idea of a second generation retro car is pretty odd really so why not buy a nice, clean example of the current car – or one of its equally retro looking rivals. Diesel Beetles can command some pretty firm prices but, if you go petrol, you can get a Bug for much less money. Keep an eye out for the excellent V5 motor, which really suits the car. Remember that these cars are pampered, so a five-year-old 2.0 petrol will only have around 40,000 miles on it. So you get the VW retro style for much, much less. UsedCarExpert.co.uk price guide: Pay no more than £6,500 for a well looked after four-year-old VW Beetle with less than 30,000 miles on the clock.

Fiat 500 The Fiat 500 has been a palpable hit for the Italian giant in the UK. You see them everywhere from

BEETLES ABOUT: Volkswagen discovered a niche in the market when they revived the Beetle, above. It has since been followed by 21st century versions of the MINI, far left, and Fiat 500, left Liverpool to Lands End. And with good reason – they are a hoot to drive, look great and generally hit the fashion conscious retro nail right on the head. Go petrol for total bargains. UsedCarExpert.co.uk price guide: A lightly used and well-cared

for three-year-old 1.4 petrol can be yours for around £8,000 with less than 25,000 miles on the clock.

MINI The MINI is popular around the

globe. It’s made parent company BMW a huge amount of money worldwide. Handling is pin-sharp but rear accommodation is scarcely better than that of the tiny original Mini of 50 years ago. Again, go petrol to

get the better value cars. On to its second generation now, the MINI remains the one to beat. UsedCarExpert.co.uk price guide: A pampered MINI Cooper 1.6 petrol can be yours from £10,500 at a mere four years old with less than 30,000 miles already covered.

Rugby fan Mark tackles new job Used car buyers to have say RUGBY League fan Mark Whitaker has taken over as the new general manager at Renault Liverpool and Renault Wirral. Mark has worked for Renault for 13 years after joining the company in 1998 as an accountant. He became the general manager of Renault Leeds in 2003 before moving to Renault Leicester 12 months later. Mark spent the next seven years at the Midlands dealership which became Branch of the Year in 2005. When the 43-year-old married father of two is not at work, he follows Rugby

League side Wakefield Trinity Wildcats, and also enjoys Moto GP. On his appointment as general manager of both Renault Liverpool, based in Sefton Street, Toxteth and Renault Wirral, on Woodchurch Road, Prenton, Mark said: “I hope to bring my experience to both dealerships and help them go from strength to strength. It's an exciting challenge." For more information on Renault Liverpool call 0844 991 0432 or Renault Wirral on 0151 790 0109 or visit www.renaultretail.co.uk.

OFFICE of Fair Trading research has revealed that the average amount spent by motorists on rectifying faults with newly purchased used cars is £425. Motor Codes, the operator of a code of practice for UK garages, is now developing a used car code to combat this problem, identify responsible businesses and boost car-buyer confidence. Designed to let customers know exactly what to expect from a retailer, the used car sales code will set out a step-by-step customer service charter, covering all aspects of a car purchase, from advertising through to

aftersales. Its content is currently the subject of an industry-wide debate, with used car retailers, motor manufacturers, Trading Standards and the media mapping out the most effective content. Motor Codes is also urging car buyers to voice their concerns and have their say about what standards retailers should commit to. Visitors to its website can use an online garage finder and are presented with a list of local garages, complete with ratings and comments from existing customers clearly visible.

plugs & points ● THE long standing road car lap record for the Isle of Man TT circuit has been comprehensively smashed in a production-spec Subaru WRX STI saloon. In his first run around the challenging 37.8-mile course, former British Rally champion Mark Higgins posted a blistering lap time of 19 minutes and 56.7 seconds, translating to an average speed of 113mph. The peak speed achieved during the lap was 162mph. The current mototcycle lap record is 17 minutes and 12 seconds. Higgins’ time is more than two minutes faster than the previous record, set by the late Tony Pond 21 years ago at the wheel of a Rover 827 Vitesse. Pond was the first to break the average 100mph barrier in a road car, and his lap record has stood ever since. The TT event organisers gave Higgins just one lap to conduct

his record attempt in the car, and there was no opportunity to carry out high speed practice runs. ● FANS of MG sports cars will be able to see the latest offering from the company at this year’s MGLive! event at the Silverstone race track. The gathering takes place from June 24 to 26 at the circuit near Brackley in Northants and will feature the new MG6 model – the first new MG for 15 years. Assembled at the MG Longbridge factory in Birmingham, the MG6 is the first model to have been developed since the company was bought by Shanghai Automotive. Enthusiasts will also be putting on a display of classic MGs plus attractions like g motor racing, stunt driving and helicopter rides.

XECUTIVE travel with a new slant is how Audi describes its super coupe, the A7 Sportback. Long, lean and packed with techno wizardry the model is also very much a niche product in that every car is being built to order – the estimate is 3,000 a year - giving it a shedload of exclusivity. The name on the label may be Sportback but as a spacious four-seater with plenty of room for luggage it’s realistically more of a grand tourer. The A7 oozes quality from every pore, whether it be the power of the engines, development of the technology, appointment of the cabin or precision of the engineering. It cuts a dash in every department. Audi fans have a choice of four engines – 2.8-litre FSI with 204PS and 3.0 TFSI with 300PS petrol plus a pair of 3.0 TDI diesels producing 204 or 245PS – and SE and S line trim grades.

And while this model is the most economical in the line-up boasting an average 53.3 miles per gallon, it’s the tested, higher powered, oil-burner that takes the biscuit. Refined and well balanced, it shows terrific poise through bends, possesses a huge amount of grip and feels superbly engineered, while the car’s sound insulation is also of high order. For those who want to vary the driving experience there’s the Audi Drive Select system with its Auto, Comfort and Dynamic modes, the latter of which substantially firms everything up.

In Brief

RENAULT has unveiled its fastest ever road car, the Megane Renaultsport 265 Trophy, ahead of its world debut at the Nurburgring circuit this weekend. This latest Renaultsport flagship is taking the fight to Volkswagen group

rivals like the Golf and Scirocco R, on the back of a 15bhp power hike on the current Megane Renaultsport. But fans of the French flyer will have to be quick out of the blocks when sales of the £27,820 model start next week because the run is limited to only 500 cars, 50 of which are bound for the UK.

Astra takes on rivals

● From Page 1 and that features Vauxhall’s high performance HiPerStrut for improved stability and handling precision. Closely based on last year’s GTC Paris concept, the new model is the third body style to come off the new Astra platform following the Hatch and last year’s Sports Tourer. But the only elements the GTC shares with its stablemates are door handles and the roof aerial – even the wheelbase and tracks are different. Vauxhall design chief Mark Adams says he has aimed to create a car that looks like it’s been plucked from the class above, and that seems to be the case with the GTC’s low, wide stance and rakish lines. The company is also confident that, thanks to a cabin that’s roomy enough to accommodate four adults plus luggage, it will appeal not only to car enthusiasts but also account for around 20 per cent of all Astra sales in the UK. “The GTC is a high-profile addition to the Astra range and one that’s sure to appeal

by MIKE TORPEY to anyone who loves cars and driving,” said Vauxhall managing director Duncan Aldred. “Better still, its chassis has been fine-tuned by Vauxhall Engineering Centre in the UK, reflecting the importance of our Millbrook-based operation.” Right from the start of the Astra GTC’s development the target was to deliver a focused and driver-orientated feel to the car, and one that worked well on UK roads. Compared with the Astra Hatch, the GTC’s ride height has been lowered by 15mm, while the wheelbase has grown by 10mm. Both tracks are wider too, allowing for the option of up to 20-inch rims. And there’s also the option of Vauxhall’s FlexRide adaptive damping which adapts to road surfaces and driving styles, also offering Standard, Tour or Sport settings which change the car’s character at the push of a button. The Astra GTC can be

SUPER SLEEK: Rear view of the new Vauxhall Astra GTC ordered with a choice of four engines – one diesel and three petrol units. The 2.0 CDTi diesel boasts 165PS and is an upgraded version of the unit already fitted to some Insignia and Astra models. It has six-speed transmission, Start/Stop as standard, a 0-62mph time of 8.9 seconds and 130mph top speed. Its combined fuel figure is

57.6mpg, giving drivers a range potential in excess of 700 miles. Start/Stop and a six-speed gearbox are also standard on both versions of the 1.4-litre Turbo petrol engine, which has either 120 or 140PS, while the most powerful engine in the range is the 1.6-litre Turbo, which produces 180PS and allows the GTC to hit a top speed of 132mph.

Next year a VXR model aimed at hot-hatch enthusiasts will join the party. Standard kit includes 18-inch alloys, DAB stereo and USB functionality while top spec SRi adds tinted glass, onboard computer, leather steering wheel and fog lamps.. Prices start at £18,495 for the 120PS Sport 1.4 Turbo rising to £22,430 for the 165PS SRi 2.0 CDTi.
