Getting comfortable is easy with plenty of directional options for seats and steering wheel, so even the biggest or smallest can get comfortable quickly, once the car has started you are greeted with a near silent tick over once the car has warmed up, and the day I had the Astra, just happened to be the hottest day of the year, so getting the engine to optimum operating temperature was very quickly achieved, and setting the sat nav for somewhere to go to take some pictures of the car was also very easy to do, it is one of the simplest Sat Navs I have come across so far.
Space in the back is quite good too, but longer journeys might be a little off putting for those that have to sit in black everything, seats are supportive, and leg room too is quite good, being just shy of six feet myself, I put the front seat where i need it and i still managed to get in the back, and have room to be comfortable.
Boot space is great, plenty of that, and with the seats down you will be forgiven that you're
not in the estate version, as it seems so big, the boot door does open quite a high, and short people might have an issue reaching it, but again, this is the norm these days, and to be honest, who has not had a chuckle at someone trying to reach the tailgate to shut and failing, or is that just me.
