Vauxhall (Opel) Astra Engine Oil Finder

The 1991 Opel Astra F series was the direct successor to the Opel Kadett. The fifth generation, the Astra K, has been available since 2015 and the sixth generation will appear in 2022.

All models of the Astra K series (2015-2021) were equipped with four-cylinder engines before the 2019 facelift, since the revision the Opel Astra has been running on three cylinders throughout . In addition, the petrol engine Vauxhall offers enough choice to configure your personal dream car. The upcoming switch to electric cars, which Opel intends to implement from 2028, has already begun with a hybrid variant for the Opel Astra L.

The Opel Astra K belongs to the lower middle class and performs slightly worse in terms of horsepower compared to the VW Golf VII , which was released a year earlier. While the Astra offers a maximum of 145 hp, the VW has 150 hp. In the middle-class model Audi A4 (B9), the power even reaches up to 265 hp. So if you value more power and prefer to travel faster, the Opel Astra K could disappoint you. The Opel Astra is also available as a compact-class station wagon under the name Sports Tourer , which offers pleasant comfort for longer journeys but is slightly larger than its middle-class brother. For another variant – the Astra L – Opel developed a three-cylinder engine in-house, which is impressive in both the petrol and diesel versions due to its economy.

Motor oil is a vital part of your Opel Astra's engine. It provides the much needed lubrication to many of the internal parts of an engine. One of its key job is to prevent wear and tear on the moving parts and helps keep the engine running smoothly. Without oil, the engine would cease up almost immediately.

Regularly checking and changing your Opel Astra engine oil is really important. Every time you start and run your car, very fine by-products from the combustion in the engine will be collected in the engine oil. This is one of the reasons why over time the oil goes black. If these contaminants build up too much and exceed the capacity of the oil it can have a negative impact on your car’s overall efficiency and actually effect its performance as it creates sludge and increased wear in the engine block.

Every engine oil will have its viscosity grade labelled on the packaging. This will look something like 0W-20, 5W-30 or 5W-40. This grading is used to measure how thick / fluid the oil is and help ensure you buy the right oil for your car. The lower the viscosity grade of the oil, the more fluid and thinner it will be than those with a high grade (higher numbers) which will be much less running and thick.

So which engine oil should you buy for your Opel Astra? Whether you are topping up your Opel Astra oil or doing a full change of your Opel Astra's oil it is really important that you use the correct grade of oil.

We have listed all the Opel Astra models and engine types in the following table, as well as the correct engine oil grade for each of the cars. You can use the search and filter to easily find the right engine oil for your Opel Astra.

Alternatives to the Opel Astra
If the Astra K is too small, you could look at the Opel Insignia. It offers plenty of space for larger loads and convinces with extensive equipment. Another alternative from Opel for those who like it sportier is the Opel Astra GTC (Gran Tourismo Compact). With up to 200 hp, driving fun is almost guaranteed. A comparable mid-range model is the BMW 3 Series, which has plenty of power under the hood and features a modern infotainment system. The Mazda 6 is also a good alternative - the Mazda not only looks chic, but also drives well and fast.
