The nominations are out for the 2016 AutoExpress ‘New Car Awards 2016’ and Ford feature heavily through the 21 categories. Each category is filled with 5 cars, which will be reduced to 3 at the ceremony, before the eventual winner is chosen. Each winner will be placed given a place as a nomination for AutoExpress’s ‘Car of the Year’.
The Ford Fiesta which is currently the UK’s best selling new car has a place in the ‘Best Supermini’ category, and will hopefully add the award to it’s rather full trophy cabinet. Both the Focus ST and RS have earned a place in the nominations to be named ‘Best Hot Hatch’ category, whilst the Mustang could be named ‘Best Convertible’ and ‘Best Coupe’. The Ranger has a chance to earn the ‘Best Pick Up’ award and the Transit has a shot at the ‘Van of the Year’ award.
The winners are set to be announced on the 5th July 2016 and we have our fingers crossed for all the Ford cars with the chance of a win.
