Car Dealer Power

Coming soon: Car Dealer Power Awards to be revealed this Wednesday at 6pm in special video

Time 12 months ago

Car Dealer will be unveiling the winners of the Car Dealer Power Awards 2020 in a special video at 6pm this Wednesday.

The video awards ceremony, hosted by James Baggott and James Batchelor, will reveal the winner of the best car manufacturer to represent and the Car Dealer Power Car of the Year.

We’ll also be running down the best suppliers to do business with across a host of categories.


The Car Dealer Power Awards are the only awards voted for by those that matter most – you, our readers.

This year is the first time they have been unveiled in a video ceremony.

The video will be released alongside a brand new dedicated Car Dealer Power section on this website detailing all of the winners and losers in our car manufacturer section as well as a closer look at all of the supplier winners.

Last year, Mazda topped the Car Dealer Power Awards list. 

Manufacturers are rated by their dealers in 13 different categories with an average of the scores taken to work out the winners. 


We’ll be analysing the winners and losers and you’ll be able to look in detail at each manufacturer’s scores.

This year, tensions have run high with some manufacturers working hard with their dealer networks to battle the coronavirus crisis while others have reinstated targets as soon as they were allowed to open again.

Feedback in the survey has been very telling and there are a number of surprisingly placed car makers this year, with some big fallers.

The shortlist for the awards is below. Tune in at 6pm on Wednesday to find out who has won what.
