Car Dealer Used Car Awards and Ewards shortlists revealed

Time 1:28 pm, November 25, 2013

Headline Sponsors: Blackhorse

THIS year’s Car Dealer Used Car Awards and Ewards are rapidly approaching and we can now reveal the official shortlist for each category.

Next Monday, December 2, will see Car Dealer Magazine celebrate the good and the great of the used car industry in the Used Car Awards held at The Brewery, central London. The glitzy ceremony is sponsored by Black Horse Finance and held in association with Wheeler Dealers. And the night will be hosted by none other than Mr Wheeler Dealer himself, Mike Brewer.

Below you will find the shortlist for each category – and we’ll be naming the winners and highly commended winners on the night.

Meanwhile, the shortlist for Ewards has also been published. This year, our annual search for the best the internet has to offer, will come to a climax on the same night – below you can find out which websites have made the shortlist.

To make sure you don’t miss out on the latest news from the event and for dealers who are keen to tweet from the ceremony, we’ll be using the #UCAwards and #Ewards13 Twitter hashtags and tweeting live from London to keep you up-to-date with the latest announcements.
