The highly anticipated WhatCar? Car of the Year awards kicked off on the 23rd January 2018 (in association with Warranty Direct) in celebration of its 40th anniversary.
The first ever WhatCar? award ceremony took place back in 1978, where some of the most popular cars on the market were celebrated. Back in the day, the Renault 20 TS was crowned the overall winner at the awards, marking what has now become a renowned and significant honor for the automotive industry.
The 2018 long list comprised of an incredible 114 vehicles nominated for 17 categories, including Best City Car, Best Family Car, Best Small SUV and many more. This year we saw one of the most competitive WhatCar? awards ever, with two new categories introduced: Best Hybrid Car and Best Family SUV.
Snows were thrilled to see an impressive 19 models represent our franchises in the top 3 of 14 categories! What's more, the Volvo XC40 was crowned with the most coveted title in the ceremony, the official WhatCar? Car of the Year 2018. From Suzuki to BMW, from SEAT to Alfa Romeo, we were not short of success at these prestigious awards. Discover all of our fantastic winners and the categories that they were listed, below:
