2012 New Car Championship

On your marks, get set... go! As Great Britain prepares to host the most famous sporting event in the world, we have decided to celebrate.

To commemorate the 2012 London Olympics, we have conducted our own New Car Championship, where we name the best cars in 12 popular sectors.

In each category we tell you which models deserve to stand on the top step of the winner’s rostrum, and we also award silver and bronze medals. We even highlight the cars that didn’t quite make the podium.
