Motorists in East Anglia can now drive away in an award-winning car after the New Astra was named European Car of the Year 2016 at the Geneva Motor Show and is available now at Murketts Vauxhall, with sites in Cambridge and Huntingdon.

The New Astra turned heads at the event and the prestigious award was decided by 58 leading automotive journalists from around Europe, bagging a total of 309 points.

Going from strength-to-strength, the New Astra also scooped the top award in the hotly-contested family hatchback sector at the What Car? Awards and was named Scottish Car of the Year.

Mark Smith, Group Sales Manager at Murketts Vauxhall, comments: “We’re delighted to offer the award-winning New Astra with the new 16 plate. It has continuously proven to be a leading favourite and all these fantastic awards reflect that. The Vauxhall Astra is without a doubt one of the best family hatchbacks around and there are many great deals to be snapped up.”

The all-new Astra Sri 1.0i Turbo is available with advanced rental for only £239 month and packs the latest technology. Available with the new-generation IntelliLink infotainment system and OnStar, which includes a high-speed 4G LTE mobile network, emergency response notification and stolen vehicle recovery technology, it has everything today’s drivers need.

Mark Smith adds: “We offer a comprehensive choice of specifications and we encourage all motorists in the area looking for a new car to visit Murketts Vauxhall and see the superb performance and features of the New Astra.”
