The Sunday Times Motor Awards 2019 vote for your cars of the year for the chance to win a holiday

Motor Awards 2019: Vote for your cars of the year

Putting you in poll position to win a holiday to Thailand


THE SUNDAY Times Motor Awards are back for 2019, following a phenomenal debut last year.

Once again, you are in the driving seat because most of the winners — from best sports car to best SUV — will be chosen by our readers.

The editors and writers of The Sunday Times Driving and Driving.co.uk have worked with our expert colleagues at Times Luxx magazine and Sun Motors to draw up shortlists of our favourite cars in each category, to make it easier for you to pick from the best of the best new cars.

Driving.co.uk will be publishing pages for each category over the next few months, giving you more information about what makes each of our picks special, so bookmark this page and keep coming back, but voting is already open — see below.

Of course, we’ll choose The Sunday Times car of the year and Driving’s inimitable car reviewer Jeremy Clarkson will be choosing his own favourite, too, but in most categories you decide the winning cars.

Win a holiday

By voting you could be a winner, too, as you will be automatically entered into a prize draw for a seven-night holiday for two to Thailand thanks to our friends at teletext holidays.

The prize draw winners will stay in a Deluxe Dip Pool room at the Dream Hotel Phuket, Thailand, with return flights from London Heathrow to Phuket, return transfers and breakfast in the hotel included. Selected departure dates will be available for November 2019, or February or March 2020.

Vote now

The 2019 Sunday Times Motor Awards promises to be the biggest, most prestigious awards in motoring publishing and broadcasting.

Now is your chance to vote and make your opinion count. The winning cars will be announced at a special event in October.
