NamWheels Cars of the Year 2017

Like last year, we asked you to vote for your favourites through our new website and social media pages but, unlike last year, y’all must’ve been so drunk that you couldn’t be bothered.

Well, except for the two peeps who commented “how much this” and “black”, thus further concreting our belief that everyone was completely plastered this holiday season.

So. These are the cars WE think are deserving of a mention (and a spot of attention) listed with the pros and cons for each 2017 newcomer.

Go on, don’t be shy!
