Voting opens for What Car? Award

The What Car? Reader Award 2018, sponsored by ALA Gap Insurance, is officially open to the public for voting, giving readers the opportunity to choose the car they think will be the most exciting to arrive in 2018.

The winning car will be announced at the What Car? Awards in January 2018, along with the winners of 21 other categories.

Twelve cars are shortlisted for the Reader Award, including the new Ford Fiesta ST hot hatch, Seat’s seven-seat follow-up to the Ateca SUV, itself an award-winner, and Tesla’s much-anticipated Model 3 electric car.

What Car? editor Steve Huntingford said, ‘It’s great to see the sensational line-up of cars readers have to choose from this year, with it proving new car buyers will be spoiled for choice in 2018.

‘The Reader Award is a particularly significant one for both manufacturers and the car buyers looking for their next vehicle because the public determines the winner. The highly sought-after prize offers a good indication of the potential success new cars might have in the coming year.’

The motoring public can vote on the car they most look forward to seeing by visiting until the closing date on 4 December at 17:00 (GMT).
