Vote for your favourite upcoming car and it could win the Reader Award in January’s What Car? Awards
8 November 2017

Voting has opened for the 2018 What Car? Reader Award, with 12 cars competing for readers’ votes as the most anticipated car of 2018. 

Voting closes in less than a month, after which the winner will be announced at the What Car? Awards in January.

The shortlist for the 2018 What Car? Reader Award is:

Last year’s winner, the Honda Civic Type R, took the award by a considerable margin, so this year’s competitors will be keen to accrue as many votes as possible. 

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.”

Our Verdict

Audi A3 hero front

Third-gen Audi A3 gets a mild facelift, more equipment, some new engines and a new hot model - but is it the cream of the premium hatch crop?

Need something to 'shake the tree' and only an EV will do it for me, I Pace or E-Tron.

That should be the list of least eagerly anticipated cars of 2018.

Has anyone had a memorable dream about a 7 seat SEAT SUV?
