A little over a week ago, we asked CAR readers to vote for their reader’s car of the year. The results are in!!!
The competition was tough with the usual Toyota and Volkswagen suspects appearing as ‘top of the pops’. Hardly surprising by now given how the Chinese newcomer has taken the motoring landscape by storm, but the Haval Jolion 1,5T Luxury Auto is in the top five, being beaten only by Volkswagen and Toyota offerings…
In for the running, we also have a Porsche, a Honda and a Mercedes-Benz, as well as two hybrids an EV and an MPV for a total of fifteen vehicles from twelve manufacturers.
And so, with fewer than 50 votes separating the winner and second place, CAR’s 2021 reader’s CAR of the year is – drumroll, confetti at the ready, oversized cheque in the wings – the Toyota Hilux 2,8 GD-6 4×4 Legend RS.
It was closer than we could ever have expected, with the Volkswagen Golf GTI coming in at a close second and the Toyota Corolla Cross 1,8 Hybrid XR taking third. Who would have thought that a homologation special would ever be in the running for a CAR of the Year award, but the Toyota GR Yaris takes fourth place, followed by the aforementioned Haval Jolion 1,6T Luxury Auto in fifth, even pipping the venerable Ford Ranger to the post by a mere ten votes!
The results up are as follows.
The 10 Winners of the CelluCity hampers will be announced next week!
Thank you casting your vote!
