It’s been another amazing 12 months in the automotive industry. Yet again, the pace of progress has wowed us, with the world’s car manufacturers battling each other to keep pace with the expanding, shifting demands of car buyers just like you.
As always seems to be the case, standards which we couldn’t imagine being beaten last year have been surpassed and new benchmarks have been set right across the car market. Whether you’re shopping for a city car or a supercar, the options at your disposal today are clearly advanced from where they were only 12 months ago. Technology, safety, performance, efficiency, comfort, space, design, value; new cars just never stop advancing and keeping up with the pace of change isn’t easy. That is where we come in.
The Auto Express team has put in the hard miles over the last 12 months to analyse every aspect of every new car on sale. The cars that get our annual New Car Awards are the very best of their type and are well worthy of a place on your car buying shortlist. Choosing them has been tougher than ever this year but we’re confident that these cars are the absolute cream of the current crop.
