Confused.com car awards 2016: The UK’s best cars revealed

Share:

It’s time to reveal the UK’s best cars - from the city slickers and school run machines, to the off-road warriors.

Car awards

We always try to help drivers make the right choice when buying a car.

So, we asked you, the drivers, to decide which cars are the true winners in their respective categories.

We based the awards shortlist on new car registrations for 2016 and on the number of car insurance quotes generated by our customers.

Rather than use a panel of judges, we wanted the awards to be based on the opinions of real drivers.

See who scooped 2016’s car awards:
