VOTING CLOSED – ANY VOTES MADE AFTER THURSDAY DECEMBER 20 AT 5PM WILL NOT BE COUNTED
You can have your say on The National's Car of the Year by voting in our poll below.
It has been a momentous year in the world of motoring, with 2018 proving something of a watershed for mainstream car manufacturers embracing the electric-vehicle revolution, not least in the SUV sector.
But the UAE remains one of the planet's top markets for automotive exotica – and that is reflected by the fact that we have driven our fair share of supercars and hypercars in the past 12 months.
We haven't forgotten some of the more mundane motors, either – one of the top picks is a hot hatch very much in reach of the average car buyer's budget.
Read on and cast your vote from our candidates listed below, selected from the cars the The National has driven since January 1.
The only rules are we have selected a maximum of one model per manufacturer, while there is one vote per person, please.
The results will be announced later this month and The National's Car of the Year, as voted for by you, the readers, will also be immortalised in print at the end of December.
