VAUXHALL ASTRA NAMED COMPACT FAMILY CAR OF THE YEAR AT AUTO EXPRESS NEW CAR AWARDS

Vauxhall's all-new Astra has claimed another accolade, winning Compact Family Car of the Year at the Auto Express New Car Awards 2016.

Announced at the annual Auto Express New Car Awards ceremony on Tuesday 4 July, the Astra topped the Compact Family Car of the Year category. The award recognises the Astra as the car that has leapt forward in many areas, but has also set the standard for others in its class. The judges praised the seventh-generation model for its value for money, technology and “real-world appeal”.

Judges added that the all-new Astra remains competitive across the board, performing strongly not only in cabin and boot space, but also thanks to its powerful and economic 1.6-litre turbo diesel engine. The technology included in the latest model will further broaden its appeal to buyers, judges claimed.

“The Astra has excelled once again,” said Rory Harvey, Vauxhall’s Chairman and Managing Director. “It’s great to see how well-received the Astra has been so far and we are pleased that the Astra is being recognised for the hard work that has gone into making this model the best yet.”

This year has already proven to be an extremely successful year for the Astra model. This award is the latest in a list that also includes being named European Car of the Year, a Family Car category win at the What Car? Awards, a Lower Medium category win at the Fleet News Awards and the Game-Changer award from Autocar.
