In addition to being the headline sponsor, Warranty Direct will also sponsor the individual City Car Award category, revealing the best new city car currently on the market.
Contenders* for the Warranty Direct sponsored City Car Award include the Fiat 500, Smart Forfour, Suzuki Celerio, and Vauxhall Viva.
Warranty Direct has sponsored the highly regarded Car of the Year Awards since 2013, working with What Car? to support the judges with invaluable insight on car reliability and running costs.
Warranty Direct managing director, David Gerrans, said: “The What Car? Awards represent one of the most important celebrations on the calendar for all those who work in the automotive industry.
“The Awards honour the accomplishments of individual car manufacturers, which then creates the substance from which expert advice can be offered to any consumers considering their next purchase.
“Warranty Direct always keeps close watch on the Awards success stories, because we then update our unique Reliability Index, which analyses cars and measures their overall reliability.
Warranty Direct cover starts from as little as £15 a month**. For more information on the reliability of your vehicle, visit www.reliabilityindex.com, or for a quote on cover, go to www.warrantydirect.co.uk.
* – Any new cars purchased this year, which are contenders for the 2016 City Car Award category sponsored by Warranty Direct, will not appear on the company Reliability Index until 2019.
