Irish Car of the Year awards, in association with Continental Tyres, is the most comprehensive car awards programme in Ireland.
Each year, the judging panel, which brings together 37 of the most experienced motoring journalists in Ireland, assess all the new vehicle models that have been launched in Ireland.
The awards have a number of goals and objectives including:
Showcase new automotive and mobility technology, in particular in the area of driver and passenger safety.
To inform the motoring public, in particular those in the market for a new vehicle, about the best cars that are best suited to the Irish driving environment.
Reward and recognise the best new cars and vans of each calendar year.
All new cars launched in Ireland are eligible for that year’s Irish Car or Van of the Year awards.
This year’s awards took place on Thursday, 8th November 2018 at the Gibson Hotel, Dublin.
