The SA Car of the Year finalists have been named but which model would you vote for? We asked our readers to vote and our Coty poll has garnered nearly 2500 votes. Which model is in the lead...?

Wheels24 reported on 40 semi-finalists in the 2014 Car of the Year competition in September. In October 2013, the nine finalists were named at the 2013 Johannesburg International Motor Show.
