The Mighty Astra wins again, picking up a handful of accolades at the Car Tech Awards. The Astra picked up three awards in the under £25,000 class, including:

  • Tech Car of the Year
  • Best Self-Parking System
  • Best Safety Innovation for Vauxhall OnStar.
  • Astra was also highly commended in the Best Sat-Nav category.

Carbuyer and Alphr, leading car review and technology websites, 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.

Stuart Milne, Editor of Carbuyer, said: “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, said: “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.”

The all-new Astra 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.
