The Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer 1.7 CDTi SE ecoFLEX has given the ‘Green Award’ at the Practical Caravan Towcar of the Year awards 2011.

The judges said “the Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer impressed everyone who drove it.  In spite of having just 123bhp to call on, it took a respectable 19.2 seconds to tow from 30-60mph.  The Astra Sports Tourer is an excellent small estate with impressive economy and low emissions.’

The Vauxhall Sports Tourer range comprises four trim levels the ES, Exclusiv, SE ecoFLEX and SRi, but adds a variety of standard and optional equipment, including FlexFold, which allows each section of the 60:40 split-fold rear seatbacks to be lowered at the press of a button housed in the walls of the cargo compartment.

Standard equipment includes air conditioning, curtain airbags, Electronic Stability Control (ESP), Electronic Parking Brake (EPB), an aux in socket and Active Safety Front Head Restraints.

Peter Hope, Vauxhalls Marketing Director said ““we’re delighted to win the Green Award at the Towcar Awards 2010. The Towcar of the Year awards are an industry standard and by far the most prestigious event in the caravanning calendar.”
