At the 2011 Practical Caravan Towcar of the Year awards, the Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer 1.7 CDTi ecoFLEX has been presented with the Green Award.

The judges said, "The 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."

"We're delighted to win the Green Award at the Towcar Awards 2010," Vauxhall's Marketing Director, Peter Hope said. "The Towcar of the Year awards are an industry standard and by far the most prestigious event in the caravanning calendar."

The Practical Caravan Awards include tests by a panel of six judges, who put each car through tests covering towing ability, buying and owning costs, drive quality when not towing and practicality.
