What Car? Awards 2021

ALA Insurance give a run-down of this year’s winners.

Published: 26th February 2021

At the beginning of January What Car? hosted a weeklong social media feast of car related content in honour of their awards.

Usually taking place on one night at a London venue, the team at What Car? created a virtual awards ceremony that lasted 5 days providing their readers with competitions, exclusive photography and announcements of the best vehicles of the year. We, at ALA Insurance, we’re proud to be their headline sponsors this year and thrilled at the level of engagement from readers and brands throughout the week.

As it’s almost March – the most popular time of the year to purchase a new car – we thought we’d inspire you and provide a roundup of this year’s illustrious winners from the awards. Which one gets your vote?
