Best Green Car: Hyundai Ioniq
The Hyundai IONIQ was recognised as the Best Green Car of 2017, due to its impressively low running costs and variety of powertrain choices - it's available as a Hybrid, Plug-in Hybrid and as a full electric.
Not only is the IONIQ super-efficient, it does not compromise on driving experience or style. It's no wonder the IONIQ won Best Green Car as it performs well on the road, but emits 0 g/km of CO2.
Using only eco-friendly materials, the IONIQ is provides luxurious feel - it is effortlessly elegant and features chrome-accented gear knobs, pedals and door scuff pads.
The battery fitted to the full electric version offers a range of up to 174 miles and can be charged to 80% in just 30 minutes - one of the best performing electric cars on the market.

Best Small Car: Ford Fiesta
With a whole range of advanced features, fantastic driving experience and pure comfort manufactured into one compact but efficient vehicle, it's no wonder the All-New-Fiesta came out as number one in the Best Small Car category.
Active Park Assist, Traffic Sign Recognition and Lane Keeping Aid are just a handful of the brilliant safety features installed in the Fiesta. These technologies have been designed to ensure all passengers are protected to the highest standard whilst journeying in the Fiesta.
Comfort is another huge selling point for the Fiesta. Although it's in the 'Small Car' category, it certainly does not compromise on space. Ford's clever use of the interior dimensions means there is more front and rear legroom than ever before.
A smaller car, packed with technology and perfect for long and short journeys - the Ford Fiesta has it all.

Best Compact SUV went to the Renault Captur this year. Panellists said the SUV had:
"generous standard equipment, eye-catching design and competitive whole-life costs" The Renault Captur flawlessly combines advanced technology, performance, comfort and safety.
With hands-free parking and a BOSE premium Sound System, the Captur's technological features are not only practical, they keep driver and passengers constantly entertained.
The engine may be small, but because it's turbocharged, the Renault Captur can move quickly. With light steering and supple suspension, the Captur makes a fantastic town car but certainly won't let you down on a lengthy journey.
