More Carbuyer Awards

Ford are having a bit of joy now at the the CarBuyers awards and have won the Best Hot Hatch award which is prestigious thanks to the popularity of the hot hatch category. We weren’t too taken aback when we heard the Focus was the manufacturer’s 1st win at the CarBuyer awards, it was hardly going to be the Ford C-Max was it… Seriously. Specifically the car that has taken the best hot hatch award is the Ford Focus ST.

Other cars that are having joy are the BMW 5 Series which we have mentioned before, the Mercedes Benz S-Class which has taken the award for the best luxury car, the Hyundai i10 which has taken the car of the year award as well as the best city car of the year, one that shocked us was in the best convertible category which saw the Volkswagen Golf cabriolet take the award when there’s cars like the Mercedes Benz SL Class around.
