Cold weather tyres are a major talking point at the moment, although the industry seems divided on their true benefit. Safety is one of their main assets in colder weather.Read more....Vauxhall Astra 1.7 CDTi SRi EcoflexNot so long ago, company drivers chose estate cars because their box-on-wheels shaping allowed maximum load versatility. But things are changing. After decades of producing workhorses that were worthy, Vauxhall signalled a dramatic switch with a flowing silhou-ette for the Insignia - and now Astra achieves even greater visual impact.Read more....Long-term tests
