The chance to name and celebrate the best suppliers and manufacturers in the automotive business is back for 2024.

The annual Car Dealer Power survey returns and it’s YOUR opportunity to honour the best suppliers you do business with and the car manufacturers you think are the best to represent.

And that’s what makes this unique – the awards are voted for by those who matter the most… you, the dealers.

The survey opens today and will close on May 17. It only takes a few minutes to fill out, so get voting now.

Last year we received well over 1,000 entries, making Car Dealer Power a highly important event in the motor trade.

Winners and highly commended placed firms were named in 19 supplier categories, with the best car manufacturers to represent and the car of the year also being revealed.

In the manufacturer awards, Toyota made a stunning rise to the top of the table, knocking Kia off the perch after three consecutive wins.

Kia finished second and BMW third, while Honda was the biggest riser, leaping by 15 places from 21st in 2022 to sixth last year.

Jaguar was named the worst manufacturer to represent for the second year running, while the MG4 was voted car of the year.

From the best protection firms to finance providers, all sectors are covered and allow dealers to air their views on the best – and the worst.

The supplier categories are listed below and the winner of each receives a prestigious Car Dealer Power trophy.
