Vauxhall swept up a not one, two or even three awards at the 2016 Fleet World meeting. It took home four awards altogether.
The 2016 Vauxhall Astra earned two of them, winning “Best New Car” and “Best Lower Medium” awards. Efficiency, connectivity and technology were all points to be praised by the panel of judges. The 2016 Astra also earned European and UK car of the year honors. Shuffle around the award case yet again, Vauxhall.
As for the Vauxhall Corsa, it left the meeting with “Best Supermini” under its belt. Its efficiency and bountiful trim levels had judges advocating for its presence in British fleets.
“Although the Corsa has long been one of the UK’s best-selling cars, Vauxhall’s very effective overhaul in 2014 means there’s never been more reason to opt for one,” said Alex. “The wide range encompasses trim levels to suit all types of corporate user, with engines ranging from 85g/km diesels and low-carbon petrols to the potent VXR. Strong on design and technology, it’s the segment benchmark.”
Finally, the Vauxhall Combo Van range was decided as the winner for “Best Small Van” category. Four body sizes mean a style suits nearly every fleet buyer, and deliver the kind of payload fleet operators desire.
“Vauxhall recognises that there is no one-size fits all van, and Combo provides fleet managers with a huge range of engine, load volume and payload options,” said Dan Gilkes, Van Fleet World Editor. “With the backing of Vauxhall’s extensive dealer network, Combo delivers a practical, well-equipped, cost-efficient load carrier.”
