It's time to dish out some automotive awards, but instead of merely watching from the sidelines, Motor1.com readers vote for the winners. It's time for the 2023 Motor1.com Social Car of the Year awards.
How To Vote
This year, all the action takes place on our official Motor1.com Instagram account, and specifically, in our Instagram stories. Over the next several weeks, we will share daily head-to-head challenges of cars competing in five categories. Simply click the poll for your favorite car; we will calculate the votes to determine the winner and move on to the next challenge.
The first challenge starts January 23, and there are challenges every day through the week to vote on!
For 2023, we have eight cars in five categories, giving us 40 competitors total. One winner will be chosen for each category, with the vehicle receiving the most votes overall winning the crown of Social Car of the Year.
- Best Luxury
- Best Supercar/Sports Car
- Best Truck/Van
- Best Urban/Compact
- Best EV
One week is devoted to each category, starting with quarter-final matchups. Semi-final matchups come mid-week, with the final round happening every Friday. Each match will be on Instagram Stories for 24 hours, during which time you can vote.
The 40 competitors were determined by the Motor1.com editorial staff based on the popularity of vehicle posts on social media over the last several months.
