The Winners of the Carbuyer Awards 2015

The winner of the Carbuyer Car of the Year awards 2015 has been announced!  These car awards are often seen as different from other awards as they focus on what people - who may not be car experts - consider when they are picking their next car.  This means categories such as best car that is cheap to insure and best road tax exempt car. 

The big winner for Car of the Year was the Citroen Cactus C4!  The Cactus C4 is instantly recognisable with its unique, exclusive airbump panels, they not only look good they protect the cactus from everyday bumps and scrapes.  The Airbumps are made room Thermoplastic Polyurethane and contain millions of tiny air capsules and don’t need any maintenance.
