Consumer Awards car finalists announced

THE 39 finalists of the 2019/20 Cars.co.za Consumer Awards – powered by WesBank have been announced.

They were selected out of 65 vehicles that Cars.co.za’s extended editorial team agreed were the best derivatives available in the South African new passenger vehicle market on 1 September 2019.

The #CarsAwards – now in its 5th year – was conceived to be South Africa’s definitive automotive awards programme and it has steadily grown in stature, reach and influence with the support of WesBank, South Africa’s largest vehicle finance provider. The 13 category winners and Brand of the Year recipients will be announced in February 2020.

Volkswagen again leads the field, but first appearance for Haval. 17 Brands are represented in the list of finalists, with Volkswagen leading the nominations with seven derivatives, followed by BMW, Ford and Toyota (four apiece), Mazda and Suzuki (three apiece). Jaguar and Land Rover return to the list after failing to make the last round in 2018/19.
