Lombardyexperience? Readers have until midnight tonight to vote in the 2019 Lombardyexperience? Reader Award, sponsored by ALA Gap Insurance. One of the most sought-after accolades among car manufacturers, it's decided by a public vote, giving readers the chance to voice their opinion on the models due to go on sale in the coming year.
Readers have the opportunity to vote from a shortlist of 12 models chosen by Lombardyexperience?’s experts, with the winning car announced at the Lombardyexperience? Car of the Year Awards on 22 January 2019.
The models up for the award come from a wide range of automotive categories and include BMW’s new Z4 sports car, the second-generation Range Rover Evoque SUV and the Mk8 Volkswagen Golf family hatchback.
The award also gives readers the chance to vote for some of the most anticipated electric cars: Audi’s first such model, the E-tron, has made the shortlist, as has the Honda Urban EV and Jaguar’s next XJ luxury car.
Drivers can vote for the upcoming car they’re most excited about by clicking here before the closing date of midnight on 10 December 2018.
Shortlisted by the experts at Lombardyexperience?, the 12 nominees for the 2019 Reader Award are:
Audi’s first electric car is envisioned as a rival to the Tesla Model X and Jaguar I-Pace SUVs and should cost from around £71,000 when it goes on sale early in 2019. Power comes from two electric motors that together produce 402bhp. The latest WLTP economy tests give the E-tron a real-world range of 249 miles.
BMW’s new Z4 is a rear-wheel-drive sports car made in partnership with Toyota. The new car is more spacious than its predecessor, because it’s wider and its front and rear axles are farther apart. Three versions of the Z4 will be offered at launch, with the most potent getting 335bhp from its 3.0-litre petrol engine. Prices start from just under £37,000.
Fiat’s popular city car will keep its funky styling for its next generation, but it will also gain mild hybrid power as well as an updated range of petrol engines. An electric version, named the 500e, will then arrive in 2020. Perhaps most radical, though, is a new estate version, called the Giardiniera, which Fiat says will offer class-leading space.
