Vauxhall has earned 2 awards at the 2023 Business Car Awards, with the Vauxhall Astra named ‘Best Family Car’ for the second year in a row. The judges loved Astra’s attractive design, low running costs, and high equipment levels, and comes electric, tying to Vauxhall's aim to be an electric only brand by 2028.
The Vauxhall Astra has been crowned as the ‘Best Family Car’ at the 2023 Business Car Awards.
The yearly Business Car Awards recognise and reward incredible performance in the fleet market, bringing the best cars for fleets across various categories into the spotlight. The Vauxhall Astra received praise from judges thanks to its low running costs and eye-catching look.
Available as a hatchback or Sports Tourer estate, with petrol, plug-in hybrid, and fully electric variants, the Astra caters for almost anyone's needs. With zero-emissions-in-use, the Astra Electric qualifies for a Benefit-in-Kind rate of just 2% (2023/24), making it especially well suited for fleet and business users alike. It will also be joined in the coming months by the Astra Sports Tourer Electric, furthering the choices Vauxhall is providing customers who are looking to go electric.
Martyn Collins, Editor, Business Car, said: “With the addition of more versions and body styles, Vauxhall has strengthened the Astra’s position. Hatch or estate, this Vauxhall’s design is eye-catching and attractive. PHEV and new EV models keep running costs low and all are well-equipped.”
James Taylor, Managing Director, Vauxhall, said: “It is rewarding to see Vauxhall’s continued success at the Business Car Awards, with the Astra named Best Family Car for the second year running. With the new Astra Electric now on sale, it’s proof that the Astra is a more attractive proposition than ever. It’s also pleasing to see the quality of our fleet website recognised by the judges. Whether it’s fleet or private buyers, Vauxhall is committed to making the switch to electric as easy as possible as we lead the way in driving Britain towards an electric future.”
With the coming arrival of the Astra Sports Tourer Electric, Vauxhall will have the options for six fully electric models across its passenger vehicle range, on top of being one of few brands to offer a fully electric model across its LCV line-up. From 2024, Vauxhall will offer fully electric versions that cover its entire range in preparation for becoming an electric-only brand by 2028.
