The latest accolade to be acquired by the Brit-built New Astra is the Autocar Game-Changer Award, proving once more why it is one of the top models on the market. Announced at the annual Autocar awards ceremony at Silverstone’s prestigious Wing complex, the Astra topped the extremely competitive Game-Changer category.
The award recognises the Astra as the car that has leapt forward in many areas, including setting new standards and defying conventions in the car industry. The judges praised the seventh-generation model for its versatility, value for money and technology. This latest accolade adds to the Astra’s already impressive list of awards following its launch late last year.
The New Astra features new technology including Vauxhall OnStar and Apple CarPlay whilst its new seat architecture adds more comfort to the drive than ever before. Impressively, the Brit-built hatchback is even lighter than its predecessor whilst continuing to be highly competitive on running costs, emissions and fuel efficiency.
Other impressive titles the New Astra has won since its launch include ‘Best Small Hatchback’ at the UK Car Awards, ‘Best Family Car’ at What Car? Awards, and the highly prestigious title ‘European Car of the Year 2016’ at the 86th Geneva Motor Show.
Jason Smith, Sales Director at Now Vauxhall comments: “We’re delighted to offer the award-winning New Astra here at Now. It has continuously proven to be a leading favourite and must-have motor. Out of all of our award winning vehicles, it is most definitely the one everybody talks about. Without a doubt, the New Astra is one of the best family hatchbacks available on the market.”
Jason added: “The dealership has a real energy at the moment and a lot of it is down to the success locally with the New Astra. The phone never seems to stop ringing with test-drive requests flooding in. An extra added incentive is that the New Astra is built here in Britain. This is something all our customers have cited as a bonus when looking to buy a new car.”
