Best Small Car Award - The Ford Fiesta

Britain’s best-selling car and supermini, even the low-end models are great fun to drive around town and yet still offers a comfortable ride on longer journeys. As standard all models include a substantial list of safety features. From frugal diesels and the ecoboost engines to the sporty ST models there is something for everybody.

Best Small Family Car - The Seat Leon Hatchback

The latest edition of the Seat Leon offers a viable alternative to some of the more well known rival models like the new Ford Focus and VW Golf models. The Leon is a stunning small family hatchback both insiode and out offer good equipemtn levels and low running costs with economical models offering up to 85mpg. At the sportier end of the spectrum there’s the Leon SC model and the stunning Leon Cupra 280 which has had car enthusiast purring with it’s eye-catching design and sporty performance it can cover 0-62mph in 5.7 seconds yet at the same time is till comfortable enough for a family car.

Best Large Family Car - The Skoda Octavia (Estate and Hatchback)

As we awarded the Octavia both best large family car and best estate car it made sense to combine the two. If you’re in the market for either you won’t go far wrong with the all new Skoda Octavia. It offers low running costs for a car in its class and a decent range of engines with the most economical able to achieve up to 74mpg plus low emissions that mean road tax exemption. Safety is a big feature too, the Octavia scored the full 5 stars in NCAP safety tests and has gained a reputation for superb reliability and an excellent build quality. With good levels of equipment across the range and competitive pricing you should give the Octavia a chance if you are in the market for a good size family car.

Best MPV – The Citroen C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso

The Citroen C4 Picasso and it’s big brother the Grand C4 Picasso offer spacious 5 And 7 seat MPV options respectively with lots of clever storage and seating options. There are plenty of engine options and equipment available but we recommend the Exclusive trim-level (1.6-litre diesel Manual). The engine has enough power to pull a car full people along nicely and the Executive trim level offers excellent equipment levels and technology. Note also the unique eye-catching looks of the C4 Picasso that help it stand out in the crowd!

Best SUV/Crossover – The Nissan Qashqai

The Nissan Qashqai is the UK’s favourite SUV/Crossover in an increasingly crowded market where manufacturer’s are all seeking to cash-in on an ever increasingly popular class of vehicle. However despite the competition the all-new Qashqai builds on it’s predecessor and delivers a stunning looking car packed with equipment and some very clever technology and plenty of engine options including some economical petrol and diesel options with 2WD, 4WD, manual transmission or the Xtronic automatic gearbox.

Best Luxury Car – The Mercedes S-Class

The S-Class is considered by many the most luxurious Mercedes model and is loaded with state-of-the-art technology and equipment especially if you add-in the executive pack. Available are a V6 diesel, V8 petrol and a petrol-electric hybrid engine, all of which offer an exceptionally smooth and quiet journey cruising on the motorway The price-tag is high but for this amount of comfort, luxury and equipment it’s probably worth every penny.

Next month we’ll release another 6 UK Car Discount Car Awards including best convertible, coupe, and hothatch.
