Vauxhall Astra Named 'Best Medium Car' At 2024 Business Motoring Awards​​

The Vauxhall Astra has been awarded 'Best Medium Car' at the 2024 Business Motoring Awards. Celebrating its tenth year, the awards highlight market leaders in the SME sector, judged by an independent panel of automotive experts and the Business Motoring editorial team. The Astra was praised for its driving experience, low ownership costs, and impressive build quality.

Available as a hatchback or Sports Tourer estate, the Astra offers petrol, hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and fully electric variants, catering to diverse drivers. The Astra Electric, with zero emissions in use, qualifies for a Benefit-in-Kind rate of just 2% (2023/24), making it ideal for fleet and business users.

Chris Wright, Editor of Business Motoring, remarked:

“The latest Astra is as great to drive as ever. Importantly, Vauxhall has reduced ownership costs, making the car more accessible. The build quality is excellent, and the overall package is well thought out.”

James Taylor, Managing Director of Vauxhall, added:

“Our success at the Business Motoring Awards proves that the Astra is now a more attractive proposition. With low running costs and a range of powertrains, including the fully electric Astra Electric, the Astra is perfect for businesses of all sizes.”

The Astra Electric features a 54kWh battery and a 156hp electric motor, achieving 4.2 miles per kWh and offering up to 258 miles of range (WLTP). Vauxhall aims to offer a fully electric version of every model in its lineup by the end of 2024.
