Top Cars In South Africa As Voted By Women


Female targeted magazine title, Women on Wheels (WOW) has revealed its list of top cars in South Africa as voted by women.

Hyundai Tucson was selected by a panel of judges to be the ‘Car of the Year’ while the Range Rover Sport sealed the Reader’s Choice Award.

More than 120 finalists were separated into 11 categories.

Cars were also voted for by the all-woman judging panel which included WOW editor, Juliet McGuire, and 9 other motoring journalists.

“Judges voted based on things such as good value for money, practicality, comfort, and performance,” said Juliet McGuire.

The 10 judges voted for cars in each category via a point system and the car with the highest number of votes was then crowned the winner of that category. Judges were then asked to vote for their overall car of the year.

The Hyundai Tucson took top honours due to its affordability, practicality and overall value for money.
