The results of the annual 'People's Wheels Awards' are out, revealing South Africa's most popular cars. But which vehicle was named 'People's Choice'?
Well, the Ford Ranger Double-Cab took the overall honours at the fourth annual Standard Bank People's Wheels Awards.
Mercedes-Benz, however, was particularly productive, driving off with a total of eight category wins.
South Africans came out in numbers to vote for their favourite cars in the 2015 survey, with the online polls open for over three months from June to August. About 60 000 votes were recorded across the competition's 22 categories.
Furthermore, a record number of responses were received from vehicle owners in a survey designed to determine their satisfaction levels with regard to the cars and bakkies they drive every day.
"Standard Bank as one of the key financiers of car buyers and lovers in South Africa believes that all motorists should have a voice in deciding what our country's most esteemed cars should be. Nobody can better assess the merits of vehicles than the people who drive them. The awards enable motorists to use their experiences, and those of others to help them to make informed comparisons and purchasing decisions," said Nicholas Nkosi, Head of Vehicle and Asset Finance – Personal Markets at Standard Bank.
"The People's Wheels Awards' success undoubtedly rests on two major factors. It is an event in which all motorists can be heard and an event in which every vote counts."
