THE con­tenders for the 2018 World Car of the Year have been re­vealed, with the Range Rover Ve­lar and Land Rover Dis­cov­ery fly­ing the flag for the UK.

Other nom­i­nees include the SEAT Ibiza, Volvo XC60 and Peu­geot 3008.

A hand­ful of models that have yet to be of­fi­cially re­vealed, in­clud­ing the Volvo XC40 and BMW X2, are on the short­list. The win­ner will be an­nounced next March.

The WCOTY is in­de­pen­dently ranked as the planet’s top automotive awards pro­gramme. Auto Ex­press vet­er­ans Steve Fowler and Mike Ruther­ford are two of the 70-plus WCOTY ju­rors across the globe.
