The annual Autocar Awards honour the best driver's cars you can buy right now, as well as the most influential people in the motor industry...
Having invented the road test in 1928, a five-star verdict from Autocar is highly prized by car makers. Plus, if it's a car that also scores highly on the What Car? road test, you can be assured that it's one of the very best cars on sale today.
These are the cars which acheived a five-star rating from Autocar in the past year.
Porsche Panamera 4S Diesel
We've praised the Pamamera's classy interior and wonderful performance, but it was awarded top marks from Autocar for being a consumate grand tourer – as comfortable on the morning commute as on a continent-crossing road trip.

McLaren's sports cars are among the best around right now, but the 720S is the first second-generation model the company has ever made. And, despite its price tag, it's one of the very best cars of its kind, offering stunning handling, explosive performance and a surprisingly comfortable ride.
The Bentley Bentayga is one of the most expensive SUVs on sale today, but it's also among the most luxurious. This diesel version is our pick of the range, because it feels every bit as powerful as the W12 petrol in the real world, while emitting less CO2 and returning better fuel economy.
