Who won what at the 2017 Used Car Awards?

HUNDREDS of motor trade professionals packed out The Brewery in central London last night for the Car Dealer Magazine Used Car Awards, where we honoured the best and brightest in the industry.

Reflecting on what he termed ‘a rather interesting year for the car industry’, with some experts predicting ‘a flat, stable used car market for the foreseeable future’, magazine publisher James Baggott said: ‘Despite the swirling negativity, things aren’t all that bad in the used car market.’

Although the economic outlook was tough, he commented, Auto Trader’s analysts for example remained positive, and the used car market continued to be ‘the backbone of the industry’.

He said: ‘I congratulate all our winners here today for their achievements.

‘This year, the standards were higher than ever, and as we worked through the hundreds of nominations we received, it was clear that dealers are trying harder than ever to give customers the best sales experiences.’

He also expressed his gratitude to all the sponsors, which included headline partner Black Horse.

The event was hosted by TV’s Wheeler Dealer Mike Brewer, and the winners and those who were highly commended were as follows:
