Driver Power 2023 results

In the 2023 Driver Power survey, new car owners across the UK told us what they loved and hated about their cars. The results give the best insight anywhere into what new car owners actually think of the cars they purchased and drive every day, helping fellow motorists choose their next vehicles and giving car makers a crucial heads-up on where they're going wrong.

We analysed the Driver Power data and compiled the results to give the definitive verdict on which new cars are the UK’s best to buy, own and run - according to the people who’ve done exactly that.

We had a host of new entries in the Driver Power 2023 new car survey as well as some shock fallers and deserving climbers. How does your car fare? What wins overall? The top 75 new cars to own are all revealed on our Driver Power results page – and it’s all voted for by you. 

You can also find the best cars to own by market sector and our run-down of the top cars in each of the survey’s sections. So if you want to know what owners think are the best new superminis or SUVs, or find out which models rank highest for comfort or technology, you’ve come to the right place. As a car buying tool, Driver Power is hard to beat.
