This year has flown by, and already the car world is gearing up for the start of 2019. It may only be September, but the World Car of The Year judges have drawn up their long list. And it’s great news if you’re after a new car, as we sell three of the contenders!
The judging process is incredibly time-consuming, so the results won’t be publicly revealed until April next year. On top of the overall World Car of The Year accolade, there are a few sub-categories such as World Performance Car of The Year and World Urban Car of The Year. Could these cars win an award?
The All-New Focus is a real step up from the last model, and it has been thoroughly praised by many UK car websites. It’s been designed to turn heads, and Ford seems to have included a model to satisfy everyone – whether you’re keen on the adventurous Active, the luxurious Vignale, the spacious estate or the sporty ST-Line. Top Gear says it’s the best-driving family hatchback, and there’s state-of-the-art technology available to allow the Focus to drive itself!
You can now buy this car from your local Hartwell Ford dealership. With our century of expertise and amazing prices, why risk going elsewhere?
Another car that has impressed the judges is the brand-new Dacia Duster, which offers a delightful sprinkling of equipment and refinement for a scarcely believable price. Tweaked styling keeps it smart and eye-catching and, with the option of four-wheel drive, the car lives up to its rugged appearance. Even if you don’t venture far off the beaten track, you’ll love the extra security during the winter months and adverse weather.
The small SUV market is full of quality cars, but it’s the SEAT Arona that has made the shortlist. You can choose many different colour combinations to make the car stand out even more, and it’s loaded with technology such as Apple CarPlay and cruise control. In fact, the Arona is so good that it has also been shortlisted for the World Urban Car of The Year. It’s only up against four other cars, so has a strong chance of winning!
If you’d like to get behind the wheel of one of these fantastic cars, make sure you visit your local Hartwell dealership. We can’t wait to see you!
