The AA Ireland Car Awards is voted on by a panel of independent journalists and aids consumers by choosing what they believe to be the best cars across a variety of categories.
These are not necessarily cars that have been launched in the past year, just the best cars in each class.
Only the Overall Winner is from a specific calendar period (October 2021 - October 2022).
“The AA Ireland Car Awards aims to provide consumers with the best possible assistance in choosing a new car for 2023 by asking some of Ireland’s top motoring journalists to choose their favourite cars across fourteen different categories,” said AA Ireland Head of Communications, Paddy Comyn
The Dacia Jogger came as the overall winner, with one jury member commenting; “The Jogger may not be electric, but in every other sense it’s the car of the moment. Spacious, practical, affordable, and frugal – it’s the car we ought all to be driving”. A full list of all the category winners can be found below.
