Winners are Grinners – Tarmac Life Car of the Year winners

Don’t judge, but we’ve finally gotten around to delivering our 2023 Car of the Year Trophies, (we’ve been busy alright) and it’s fair to say that the recipients were very chuffed.

To recap: Our ‘Small Lifestyle Car of the Year’ went to Opel with their nifty Astra. We loved the GSe!

The ‘Medium Lifestyle Car of the Year’ was picked up by none other than the Nissan X-Trail, the ePower, e4ORCE combo is a force to reckon with.

‘Most Thrilling Vehicle’ was another tough category, (many vehicles thrilled us last year), however the BMW M2 took the top spot.


And finally – our overall ‘Tarmac Life Car of the Year’ went to the Nissan X-Trail, it seriously ticks soo many boxes.
