Should my Opel Astra get a power upgrade?

I find my Opel Astra 1.4 (2011) sluggish after dropping from 4th to 3rd in traffic and then trying to go back up again to 4th. The car has 100hp. Would or could I get an upgrade in power?

Hi F D,

The 100hp Astra was never the quickest car in the world at the best of times, and much here will depend on exactly when and at what rpm you’re trying to change gears and accelerate. I think it’s a bit early to start talking about power upgrades or changing the engine management system — your best bet is to get the car into a garage and have the engine checked out for any issues. When was the last time you had it serviced, for example?
