Hi all,

How do I tell if an Astra is an eco4 model?

I've started a new job which involves lots of motorway travel and have decided to buy an Astra eco4. I went to view a 53 plate 1.7cdti Astra today, which was supposed to be an eco4 model, but it had no spoiler and the tax on the disc was £120 (should be £35?), tho the service book said ecoservice and ecotech was written on the engine.:confused::confused::confused:

The bloke selling the car said he had it as a part ex and the eco4 part came up when he typed the reg into exchange and mart. So is it really a eco4 model or just a standard cdti?

Any help would be most appreciated.

Many thanks,

Chris

Could the £120 tax be because the car was taxed before April 2008 and it will come down to £35 at the next renewal?

According to Parkers the Road Tax next year is £90, pretty good if you ask me (Y)

Althought this link confuses things... HERE All depends what your V5 says I reckon .

I used to own an eco4... it is definately £35 a year for tax, it has the spoiler, undertray and it should have Eco4 in the door trim bit as stated above.

if it was a eco4 it would be a dti
Not all eco4 astras are dti. Some are the later version common rail (cdti). The later cdti version is quieter and defo a better drive as i am on my fourth one now and very reliable. Shame vauxhall couldn't put isuzu engines in all their cars lol
