The 2015 SA Car of the Year (Coty) will be announced on Wednesday evening (March 18) at a lavish promotional banquet. Will it once again contradict the way the general public vote on Wheels24's Coty voting booth.

So far we've had 8908 votes - let's use the remaining time until the "official" Coty announcement to try to get to 10 000 and provide a clear "voice of the people" Wheels24 winner.

The 11 finalists for 2015 came from a poll/vote among members of the SA Guild of Motoring Journalists of an original list of 40 cars, whittled down to 20 semi-finalists and eventually the 11 finalists.

The guild has run the competition since 1986.


The new Audi A3 remains favourite among Wheels24 readers with 1885 votes.Then a mere 17 votes separate the second-placed Mercedes-Benz C-Class (1441) and BMW's M4 (1424).

Renault's fun new Duster grabbed 964 votes followed by Toyota's Corolla (712) and the Porsche Macan (508) in fifth and sixth. Trailing in last place is Citroen's C4 Picasso with 191 votes. Porsche has won the SAGMJ competition for the past two years.

Will Wheels24's readers' choice come out tops or could we see Porsche win for a third year in a row?

Opel Astra 1.4T Enjoy auto – understated and smart new hatch

When it comes to the mid-size hatchback choice, there are a few default choices, a few bland ones… and some often overlooked cars. The Opel Astra hatch is an example of the latter, writes David Swanepoel. - Sponsored
