Vauxhall's new Tech Line trim, available on Astra and Insignia, aims to offer company car drivers ‘exceptional’ levels of standard spec, combined with low P11D prices and attractive Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) tax charges.
The carmaker has combined a comprehensive kit list, including sat nav, DAB radio, Bluetooth, USB connectivity, 17-inch alloy wheels, and cruise control. To complete the new trim level, Vauxhall has ensured that both models come with a competitive line-up of fuel efficient engines. The Astra Tech Line is available with the 1.7-litre 130PS ecoFLEX start/stop diesel unit, one of the most economical in its sector, producing just 99g/km of CO2. This model, along with its less-powerful 110PS sibling, qualifies for zero Vehicle Excise Duty and falls within the lowest 13 per cent benefit-in-kind diesel tax band. It also qualifies under the 110g/km threshold for 100 per cent first year capital allowance and as it meets the Euro 5 standard for air quality it is exempt from London’s Congestion Charge.
The Insignia Tech Line is also available with a low CO2 diesel, the 2.0-litre 160PS ecoFLEX diesel is one of the best in its class, emitting a miserly 115g/km.
"Eye-catching features matched to exceptional P11D values make the new Tech Line Astra and Insignia models really stand out from the crowd,” said James Taylor, Fleet Sales Director. “Low CO2 emissions and efficient ecoFLEX engines deliver substantial savings to both fleet decision makers and company car drivers alike.”
