Vauxhall Astra drivers concerned about parking their vehicles in tight spaces may wish to take advantage of a new system available from Vauxhall Accessories.
Motorists are being given the chance to buy a bumper mounted rear parking sensor system that can be attached to any model in the Vauxhall fleet.
The device is automatically activated when a driver puts their vehicle in reverse gear and works on a beeper system, with the technology beeping at a faster tempo the closer the car gets to an obstruction.
This could be especially valuable for motorists regularly driving in places where parking places are at a premium, such as busy city streets.
As well as being available to order from Vauxhall, the manufacturer will also fit the system on behalf of a motorist to ensure piece of mind that it is in full working order.
Car drivers looking for some facts regarding the Vauxhall Astra may be interested to know that the combined fuel economy of the vehicle is 62.8 miles to the gallon, while it only generates 119g/km of CO2 emissions.
