What Car? opens reader voting

What Car? has opened the voting for its Reader Award 2016, inviting readers to cast their votes for the car they consider to be the most eagerly-anticipated new vehicle launch of the year.

The result of the public vote will be announced as part of the 39th annual What Car? Car of the Year Awards, in association with Warranty Direct, on January 13, 2016.

Readers can vote for their favourite cars from a shortlist of 10 contenders for the HPI-sponsored Reader Award at www.wcreaderaward.com until 00.01 on November 27 2015.

The annual What Car? Awards are some of the most coveted accolades for both manufacturers and the car-buying public alike, because What Car? experts certify that only vehicles which perform exceptionally against exacting criterion are shortlisted, meaning the Reader Award provides an invaluable indication of the car-buying public’s feelings towards next year’s new cars.

The shortlist for the 2016 award, compiled by What Car?’s team of experts, includes the Alfa Romeo Giulia, Bentley Bentayga, Fiat 124, Ford Focus RS, Honda NSX, Jaguar F-Pace, Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Convertible, Tesla Model X, Toyota Prius and the Volkswagen Tiguan.
