Vauxhall Astra Van History
The Vauxhall Astra Van has appeared across many generations since 1979. The Mk1 (1979-84) was known as the Bedford Astravan as Bedford was the name given to all Vauxhall commercial vehicles at the time.
The Mk II (1984-91) really changed the look of the Astra Van; it was totally restyled making it rounder and more aerodynamic. The Mk III (1991-98) was more of an updated Mk II and was again a very popular and attractive looking small van.
The Mk IV (1998-2004) improved on features of its predecessor such as safety, handling and making it better to drive. The Mk V (2004-09) was a very stylish looking van and well designed. The Mk VI (2009 - present ) is the current version in production.
The current Vauxhall Astra Van has the 1.7 CDTi 16V diesel engine which is great economically, averaging about 57mpg which is great for any commercial vehicle. Did you have an older version, which engine and how did it perform economically?
