The Irish Car of the Year Awards 2017, in association with Continental Tyres, will take place on Thursday October 27th.

This year’s jury is made up of 33 jurors from across online and print media who will vote for an overall Irish Car of the Year 2017, along with a number of category winners. Over 40 new cars launched in Ireland over the last year are eligible for the Awards.

Speaking at the launch of Irish Car of the Year 2017, Tom Dennigan from Continental Tyres Ireland said, “Continental Tyres is delighted to be sponsor of the Irish Car and Van of the Year awards, which are adjudicated upon by the majority of motoring journalists in Ireland.”

“For those Irish motorists who are in the lucky position to be considering a new car for the new year, the choices of the learned jurors of the Irish Car and Van of the Year awards are a great help in making sense of the bewildering array of cars and technologies that are available from the smallest car segments right up to the most exotic models on sale in the Irish market.”

The categories for this year’s Awards are as follows:

An Irish Van of the Year 2017 will also be awarded.
