Astra Sports Tourer Awarded ‘Best Estate Car’ at Telegraph Car Awards

Vauxhall’s new Astra has already made quite an impression on the car industry and customers across the UK, having received a magnitude of awards already this year, including European Car of the Year.

This time it’s the Astra’s Sport Tourer that reigns supreme. The Astra’s Estate model sibling has been named ‘Best Estate Car’ at the Telegraph Car Awards following extensive road testing  of all new cars by the Telegraph’s automotive team.

Judges heaped praise on the Astra Sports Tourer, commenting: “The new Astra is at its best in estate guise, which gives a useful boost in boot space to go with its other winning attributes.” Although it was not just the convenience that impressed, with the judges adding: “The engine range is one of the strongest out there, too.”

Vauxhall’s Chairman and Managing Director, Rory Harvey, said the award winning streak enjoyed by the Astra is ‘great news’.

“The Astra has been very well-received and it’s great news that the new model has been recognised yet again, this time at the Telegraph Cars Awards,”
