New Car Awards 2022 Winners




Looking back to the year just ended, Auto Express announced the 2022 winners of their New Car Awards, which showcased the best cars on the UK market today in a range of different categories. Read on as we discuss the winners.


In recent times, the motor industry has seen major setbacks, from Covid-19 through to the war in Ukraine bringing part shortages and order delays. However, this has meant that car manufacturers have had to adapt to the new issues that have arisen, bringing innovative and advanced vehicles to market. The list of winners shown below contains affordable electric vehicles, high performance SUVs and some technology on the inside that was unimaginable just a few years ago.


The list sees some returning familiar favourites. Two cars are enjoying their third consecutive top spot in their respective categories, the Renault Clio is once again the Supermini of the Year, and the Mercedes GLA has been the Small Premium SUV of the Year since 2020. Other longstanding favourites include the Ford Ranger being the reigning champion of Pick-up of the Year for four years in a row, and the MINI Convertible picking up the award for Convertible of the Year for a whopping fifth year on the bounce.


2022 has also seen some brand-new models storming the UK and setting a new industry standard. The Ford E-Transit, for example, has set the bar for electric vans in the future after securing the award for Electric Van of the Year. Another example of a car that has won consumers over is the winner of the coveted Car of the Year 2022 - the groundbreaking Nissan Ariya. We think this will be the car for other brands to look out for in the future, and the fact that this is an all-electric model shows how the standards and precision of EVs are only getting better.


It is safe to say that the UK car market is in safe hands, with technology and design elevating the available cars to new heights. We have never before seen models which can drive, handle and provide for their driver quite as well as the winners of this year's awards.

Look at all of the winners in the table below.
