Vauxhall have recently let it be known to MotorMartin that their all-new Astra has been recognised for its outstanding range of advanced technology features, picking up a handful of accolades at the Car Tech Awards and that this latest victory confirms the all-new Astra’s position as one of the top new models on the market.

In fact, the newsdesk over at MotorMartin Towers has not stopped groaning under the weight of news regarding the all new Astra as, and I think it’s safe to say this, it has been rather well received since it’s launch back at the business end of 2015. In fact, the Astra picked up three awards including the Tech Car of the Year, Best Self-Parking System and Best Safety Innovation for Vauxhall OnStar. All awards were in the under £25,000 class, where the Vauxhall Astra was also highly commended in the Best Sat-Nav category. Very well done.

Carbuyer and Alphr, leading car review and technology websites, have informed MotorMartin that they have joined forces to develop the Car Tech Awards, a celebration of the very best in-car technology on the market today. The awards focus on a car’s connectivity, driver assistance systems and safety innovations, as these features are now considered by many buyers to be ‘must-haves’ alongside traditional aspects such as reliability, and performance. Absolutely.

Stuart Milne, Editor of Carbuyer, shared with MotorMartin that: “We were hugely impressed by the range of technology the Astra offers, its ease of operation and the depth of its ability. The Astra – and its tech – is priced so affordably, making it all the more impressive.”

Rory Harvey, Vauxhall’s Chairman and Managing Director, explained to MotorMartin that: “The Astra has performed strongly this year, and now it has proven itself to be a top contender in terms of technology, safety and connectivity.”

Vauxhall are rightly proud of their all-new Astra as it has had an incredibly successful year, with the Car Tech awards joining an impressive list of accolades that includes being named a Game-Changer by Autocar and picking up European Car of Year, as well as category wins in the Auto Express, WhatCar? and Fleet News Awards.

Not a bad year then for the all new Vauxhall Astra.

Where will you go?
