2010 FW Honours: Vauxhall Astra named "Best New Car"
Chairman of Judges Steve Moody said: ‘In a difficult year for the brand, Vauxhall still showed that it knows how to launch products that the fleet market wants to buy. Build quality in the new Astra is very impressive; it’s spacious, well-specified for business customers and good to drive too. It’s a British-built car that is really starting to find favour quickly in the fleet market.’
Maurice Howkins, UK fleet sales director for Vauxhall, added: 'As one of the UK’s best-selling vehicles over the past 30 years and a cornerstone of the fleet market, the launch of a new Astra is a major event in the motoring calendar. With its raft of improvements over the successful outgoing model, as well as the fantastic cost and environmental benefits offered by our ecoFLEX range, the Fleet World Honours accolade gives us even greater confidence in all new Astra’s ability to serve the fleet sector.'
