20 Mar SA Coty Opel Astra
The Opel Astra took top honours in the 2017 WesBank South African Car Of The Year contest. Facing tough competition in a 10-vehicle strong line-up the Astra impressed the COTY Jury with its roadholding and build quality. Each vehicle’s final score was determined by points awarded for Exterior Design & Styling; Interior Use of Materials; Interior Layout; Technology; Engine Performance; Gearbox & Transmission; Engineering Integrity & Build Quality; Ride Quality & Refinement; Steering & Handling; Affordability; Value for Money; and Overall Excellence.
Already a multiple award-winning car, the Opel Astra is the fourth Opel to have won since the SA COTY began in 1986. MM
