Astra Wins ‘Top Family Car of the Year’ at Carbuyer Awards

Vauxhall’s newest generation Astra has picked up yet another award to add to its expansive trophy cabinet at this year’s Carbuyer Awards.

The new Astra was praised for its design, technology and recognised for its excellent running costs.

“The latest Vauxhall Astra has been on sale since late 2015, and it’s fair to say it’s the best family hatchback the company has ever made. The Astra is better built, more aesthetically pleasing and more economical than any of its predecessors,” commented Stuart Milne, Editor of Carbuyer. “We rate it as the best family car you can buy today, thanks to its blend of modern technology, excellent value for money and superb overall ownership experience.”

Family Car of the Year is the third Carbuyer Award Vauxhall have won in recent years, following on from awards for the Best Self-Parking System on the new Astra and Best Safety Innovation in the form of OnStar.

Stuart Harris, Vauxhall’s Head of Carline Brand, said: “This award adds to what has been an extremely successful year for the new Astra. It has proven itself in many categories and now has been singled out as one of the best family cars available on the market.”

“The Astra is a strong contender in every aspect. The latest technology, thanks to OnStar, offers excellent levels of connectivity and safety, while the latest design offers a great look without compromising on space for the family.”
