Our all-new Vauxhall Astra is proving itself to be one of the top models on the market. Its latest accolade – the Autocar Game-Changer award – adds to the already impressive list of awards it’s won since its launch in late 2015, a list which includes European Car of the Year 2016.


The Astra topped the extremely competitive Game-Changer category at the annual Autocar awards ceremony at Silverstone’s prestigious Wing complex. The award recognises the innovations that have gone into its design, and also how it has managed to set new standards and defy conventions in the car industry.


The judges especially praised the seventh-generation Astra model for its versatility, value for money and technology.

Quantum leap

“The new Astra has taken a quantum leap forward over the previous generation and has put Vauxhall back in the running in one of the most competitive sectors of the industry,” said Jim Holder, Autocar’s editorial director.


“It stands out for doing everything well, and some things better than everyone else. The Astra has an outstanding diesel engine and agile handling, while its infotainment and safety technologies provide selling points you might not expect from the brand.”
