The WesBank South African Car of the Year Competition is based on the principle of automotive excellence. Ultimately, the winning car must adhere to key elements around this concept.

The 10 Finalists in this year’s WesBank South African Car Of The Year competition were put through their paces during an extensive evaluation period for two days, held at Kyalami and Velmore Hotel & Spa.  The finalists were evaluated by 26 Jury members, with four assistant jury members on board to learn and assist.

A big thank you to our sponsors WesBank, MAPO and AutoTrader and to all involved in making the test day period the success it was.

The winner will be announced at a cocktail banquet, to be hosted by WesBank, on Tuesday, 13 March 2018.
