Car of the Year 2018

Awards Winner
Borrowing the playbook from its elder siblings, the XC40 adds its own fun twist to the compact SUV segment by bringing a ton of “first-in-class” features. Active safety tech like Lane-keeping assist, Pilot assist, Park assist and more ensure that you stay on the road even when your eyes or hands wander. The right size and the right styling cues mean that the XC40 is perfectly equipped to handle the hardships of urban life without breaking a sweat Niceties like a 13-speaker, 660W Harman Kardon hi-fi system, a bit of swag with the Lava Orange interior carpet and the full-size tablet like screen that is plucked straight out of the more expensive Swedes. From its frugal 2.0l diesel motor to the well weighted steering and smooth transmission, this 4WD is all about refined city style

The runners-up

BMW 630i GT

Wafting like a real-estate mogul through the urban jungle on the back seat of the 6 Series GT is special. It’s spacious, comfortable, eerily quiet and always teases you to get behind the wheel.

A new S-Class is not a thing to be taken lightly. Especially when it gets a dollop of spanking new tech. The best car in the world just keeps getting better at what it does best - treating its occupants like royalty.

Settled in a niche all by itself at the moment, the RS6 Performance is a supercar in disguise. It's certainly not an easy sell for Audi, but drive it once and it's sure to become an addiction.

Range Rover Velar

The most stylish SUV ever to wear the Range Rover badge and also the most advanced, the Velar is an iron fist in a velvet glove. Genuine off-road credentials with an urbane silhouette that screams “WANT”!
