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.
