Clear more space, Vauxhall Astra, because another award needs to find its way to the trophy case. Auto Express has named the 2016 Vauxhall Astra its Compact Family Car of the Year for 2016.
The award not only recognized an excellent vehicle in many categories, but helped define how the new Astra has set new standards for what the segment is capable of, too. Judges praised the Astra for its technology and “real-world appeal.”
“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 recognized for the hard work that has gone into making this model the best yet.”
Included in the Astra’s trophy case are 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.
