Yes, it’s a multi-award-winning Astra!

It goes without saying that every car we sell at Newtown Motors has to be of the highest possible quality. But this year in particular, one car has seen more than its fair share of recognition in some important industry awards. Allow us to introduce the multi-award-winning, all-new Astra.

Best Family Car

The Vauxhall Astra kicked off 2016 with a win at the What Car? Awards in January. At Grosvenor House on Park Lane, the Astra 1.0 Turbo ecoFLEX Design topped its extremely competitive class to win the Best Buy Under £16,000 category.​

European Car of the Year

The Astra’s next win was at the 86th Geneva Motor Show, where it drove away with the title of European Car of the Year 2016.

Rory Harvey, Vauxhall’s Chairman and Managing Director, was delighted. “To be named European Car of the Year by judges throughout Europe is a testament to the hard work that has gone into the Astra. This is the new model’s first full year of sales, and it has already been well-received.”

Fleet News Awards

But it didn’t end there. A judging panel of influential decision-makers and journalists in the fleet industry awarded the all-new Astra with another prestigious title.

It was recognised in the Lower Medium category at the Fleet News Awards, topping its extremely competitive category.


Best Small Hatch

As if that wasn’t enough, the all-new Astra was also recognised in the extremely competitive Small Hatch category at the UK Car of the Year Awards.

A judging panel of 27 influential UK motoring journalists, representing fleet, consumer and trade titles, praised the model for its design, performance and equipment. The Astra had also been described as “a consummate all-rounder thanks to space, comfort and quality in combination with a refined drive and great handling,” by Alisdair Suttie; consumer motoring journalist and co-founder of the UK Car of the Year Awards.
