The winners of the 2015 Autocar Stars will be announced this evening in London, as we salute the best vehicles, people and processes in the motor industry

The winners of the 2015 Autocar Stars will be announced tonight, as we salute the finest vehicles, companies, processes and people in the motor industry.

Among the accolades to be awarded tonight will be the Issigonis Trophy. Named after legendary car designer Sir Alec Issigonis, the award goes to the individual which has contributed the most to the health, excellence and world competitiveness of the motor industry.

In 2014, McLaren Group chairman and chief executive Ron Dennis received the award.

The second award of the evening will be the Sturmey Award. Named after Autocar’s founding editor, Henry Sturmey, it recognises innovation and achievement in the motor industry. Tesla Motors received the award in 2014.

Tonight’s event will also honour the cars that have achieved a full five-star rating on the Autocar road test. Manufacturers whose cars have scored top marks on our road test in the past 12 months will receive a trophy, marking the fact that Autocar’s road test process is far more thorough than that of any competitor. 

Speaking ahead of the ceremony, Autocar editor-in-chief Steve Cropley said: “These are very personal awards - for people who not only have the creativity and leadership abilities to reach the very top, but whom we like and admire."

The winners will be revealed at an event taking place at the Hurlingham Club in south-west London.

You’ll be able to follow the event live on Periscope, and we’ll be tweeting throughout the evening with the hashtag #AutocarStars.

Alternatively, stay tuned to the website this evening as we reveal the winners.

    Seat is on a roll but can the Arona, its new junior SUV, cut it in such an ultra-competitive class?
