What Car? Awards
What Car? has announced their shortlist of vehicles for their Car of the Year 2017 annual awards which takes place at London's Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane on 11 January 2017.
There are 43 all-new cars that are in contention for the overall title. The expert team of judges ensure only the cars that deliver on all fronts from driving dynamics and interior quality to refinement and value for money make the final list.
What Car? editor Steve Huntingford said: "Over the past 12 months, the global automotive industry has delivered nothing short of excellence, producing new cars that are ever more appealing as well as safer and better for the environment.
"Although we also await the announcement of our category winners, the all-new cars on our overall winner shortlist have all brought exceptional qualities to the market and richly deserve their place not only here but also on the shopping lists of motorists."
The winner from the 43-strong shortlist will succeed the Audi A4 which took the prize in 2016, and will be named alongside individual category winners and the winner of the Reader Award, the most exciting car of 2017 as voted for by the public.
