Default Which Engine oil for Opel Astra

Hi All,
I have recently bought a used Opel Astra. Its time to replace the engine oil now. Could you please point me to the right grade and the most well recommended engine oil for this car ? I may not be able to afford synthetic oil at present so please suggest thats something less expensive.

Check the owners manual for the recommended grade.
