Driver Power 2012

29,000 motorists have had their say, and now we reveal the Driver Power 2012 winners

>> Complete this year's survey 

Every year, the Driver Power ownership survey draws on the experiences of UK drivers to discover which model is Britain’s best car. And now we’ve crunched the numbers to bring you the winners and losers for 2012.

Tens of thousands of drivers have rated the cars they own in 10 different categories, ranging from how easy they are to drive and how comfortable they are to sit in to how much they cost to run.

We can’t include every model on the road, so the survey is limited to cars that have been on sale in the last five years. Plus, to ensure our results are reliable, we need a large number of replies from drivers of each vehicle.

This year’s result is one of the closest yet, but our overall winner deserves its place, with three individual category wins and an overall rating from owners of 92.47 per cent.

And with the September reg change, comes a host of key decisions. Which dealers are best? Which insurer should you use? And which breakdown provider?

That’s where Auto Express Driver Power comes in. We tell you which brands ticked most boxes in our dealer, insurance and breakdown satisfaction survey, giving you a definitive guide to the best and worst.
