IMO: Depend on your ears and where you're driving. I got the Sports Tourer, with 18" wheels and sound proofing. I believe the sound proofing helps a lot - but it's not perfect.

My car are rattle free, quiet on paved roads, but when driving on unpaved roads the noise of sand blasting the channels overwhelm everything else. Brick roads creates noise from the trunk.

I have put extra sound proofing at the bottom of the trunk, it made my car less noisy on brick roads. Am going to put some asphalt / bitumen on the channels and inner wheel archs before autumn - it will probably help a lot.
The sound proofing materials I've found are mainly at the roof and sides of my car, so when I combine it with my "last bits of extra" I believe it will be really quiet.

Yes. Windshield acoustic PVB makes the real difference.

Didn't realise the Astra K had this option. Though they just had under bonnet and front arch deadening.
