The Drive Car of the Year awards, now in their 16th year, shines the spotlight on the best vehicle in each of 20 consumer-focused new car categories.

The categories include Best Small Car, Best Medium SUV, Best Dual-Cab Ute, Best Hot Hatch, and Best Value Car, plus 15 others, all tailored to help Australian consumers buy smarter.

From those 20 winners, one car is crowned the best of the best, the Drive Car of the Year overall winner. The vehicle that wins this ultimate prize is the one the judges believe makes the most significant automotive advances that will impact more Australian new car consumers.
