WHAT’S YOUR favourite adventure car of 2018? Now’s your chance to have your say, by taking part in the Sunday Times Driving Motor Awards 2018.
Our motoring experts have produced shortlists of the top vehicles on sale this year, but most of the winners will be decided by you. Simply visit the voting page and click on the cars you think are the best of the best.
Making the shortlist in the adventure category are the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, Citroen C3 Aircross, Mercedes-AMG G63, Land Rover Discovery and Suzuki Jimny.
Our panel of experts were looking for cars that could handle the odd spot of rough and tumble, stood out of the crowd and had personality to spare – regardless of whether they were little or large. Here’s what they had to say of the contenders in the adventure car of the year category:
Alfa Romeo Stelvio
In a market full of SUVs, Alfa Romeo has created one with character and style. For extra adrenaline, there’s a hair-raising version called the Quadrifoglio. See Driving’s review of the Stelvio
Citroen C3 Aircross
Never judge a book – or car – by its cover. Jeremy Clarkson declared that the pint-sized C3 Aircross was “…far and away the best off-roader that I’ve driven”. Read Clarkson’s review of the C3 Aircross
Land Rover Discovery
Land Rover’s made the new Discovery lighter and better to drive, with off-road credentials second to none. Its looks don’t please everyone, but does that matter? See Driving’s review of the Discovery
There’s very little quite like the G-class, and nothing at all like the gutsy Mercedes-AMG G63. Perfect for adventurers in a hurry.
Small and tough, with room for a hay bale in the back, or a surfboard on top, the Jimny is proof that you don’t need a large SUV, or a large budget, to venture into the wilderness. See how the Jimny handled an off-road test
The winners, including the coveted Sunday Times Car of the Year and Jeremy Clarkson Car of the Year, will be announced at a star-studded event in October.
