Here’s CAR magazine’s Top 12 Best Buys for 2019

Most of you would know by now that I started my career at CAR magazine back in the day. The CAR magazine Top 12 Best Buys awards was always a highlight…and also a ball-ache. Can you imagine trying to choose the best 12 cars in the country? It is an exercise I am happy to leave up to the very experienced team I left behind.

Speaking of this team, collectively they have over 100 years of experience within the motoring world. How insane is that?! These guys are the experts of experts. Can you imagine my excitement when I was asked to be the Master of Ceremonies for the awards?! Yoh, what an honour. And what a night. If you want to see some pics of that night, head on over to my Instagram.

Before you peak at the winners below, be sure you know what the criteria for judging was. But now, for the real juice of this story…
