Adaptive Cruise Control was introduced in the MY2018 update:

Thanks. Does MY2018 mean any 18 or 68 reg? Or could a 67 reg car built in Jan 2018 have it as an option?
As far as i have understood, a modelyear is usually launched in the middle of the previous year

so anything 2H 2017 is a MY2018

I have seen MY 2016-½ though so sometimes they do changes in the middel of a modelyear maybe.

My 66 plate is a MY17 and Adaptive cruise was not available then, it is an option now, not standard

For clarity my car is a non Sat Nav Elite with Parking pack (self park, rear camera, folding mirrors and blindspot warning) I opted for Driver pack one so I could have Intellilux headlamps. Climate control (dual zone) is standard on Elite, optional on SRi

Am I right in thinking that adaptive cruise is no longer available on Astra, or is it now standard?

We started out looking for a used car but had a similar list of spec we wanted. In the end we gave up and ordered a new one.

I suspect it may get easier as cars come off finance or lease but we didn't want to look any longer.

Being particular on engine didn't help us either.

In our case it would have helped if there was a spec somewhere between SRi and Elite. In the end we chose an SRi and added the Elite bits we wanted as we didn't want leather and they wouldn't sell us an Elite with cloth seats.
