​Vauxhall Astra and Zafira Tourer Recognised in 2016: BusinessCar Awards​​

Vauxhall has been recognised by BusinessCar, with the Zafira Tourer winning Mini-MPV of the Year, while the all-new Brit-built Astra was runner-up in the Business Car of the Year award.

“The Vauxhall Zafira Tourer has shown its strength in terms of practicality, innovation and value for money, and with the way BusinessCar readers have voted, they obviously appreciate these qualities in a mini-MPV,” said BusinessCar Editor Paul Barker.

“The Zafira Tourer’s clever rear seating arrangement and competitive emissions figure makes it an obvious choice in the segment.”

“We’re thrilled that BusinessCar readers recognise the benefits of the Zafira Tourer and Astra,” said James Taylor, Vauxhall’s Fleet Sales Director. “Both models are incredibly successful for us, offering all-round appeal with comfort, practicality and style alongside competitive emissions and total cost of ownership figures.”

The BusinessCar Awards are unique in that they are the only awards decided by the fleet industry itself, with the readers of the magazine and BusinessCar.co.uk voting for the products, services and companies that best support their businesses. Rather than being decided by a panel of experts, the BusinessCar Award winners are chosen by the people relying on them to help efficiently run their businesses on a daily basis.

These latest awards follow recent recognition of the all-new Astra in the Family Car category at the WhatCar? Awards. In the Best Buy under £16,000, the Brit-built Astra 1.0T 12v ECOflex Design was awarded as top of its class.

Other recent successes include Vauxhall’s OnStar receiving the Auto Express Technology Award and the BusinessCar Techies Award.
