This is the second time the brand has been awarded the honour, with the Legacy winning the title back in 2003. Last year's winner was the widely-acclaimed Mazda MX-5 roadster.

The company also reported that more than half of its orders were customers that were switching from other brands, indicating that the Impreza is now attracting a wider range of customers in country.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?
