European Car of the Year finalist (Results in March)


Quote:
At the top of the alphabetical list is Ford's Fiesta-based, B-Max MPV. Five doors, good ride and fuel-efficient, award-winning engine choices are some of the reasons it makes the list. Next is the Hyundai i30, known as the Elantra GT Stateside, with either five or three doors, a roomy cabin and a 1.6-liter CRDi engine. The nominating committee commends the handsome hatch for improved exterior aesthetics and a multilink suspension that "shows in ride and handling."

Mercedes gets the next spot with its hot hatch: the turbocharged A-Class, followed by another hatch, the Peugeot 208. The next finalist is from another marque we haven't seen in the States for quite some time the fourth-generation Renault Clio, followed by the Subaru/Toyota dynamic duo of BRZ and the GT86. The last two contenders are the all-new Volkswagen Golf and the svelte Volvo V40.

The European Car of the Year will be announced in early March after the jury has tallied its votes.

I am actually breaking this down right now. It's kind of a tricky metric to be honest.

Some sites have it has the twins, other sites have them differentiated because of the slightly higher price tag on the BRZ and then typically all of your over the pond folks evaluate the GT86. By a quick look at everything I have compiled it tends to leave towards the FRS but I would imagine thats because it was provided cheapest to the most folks.

Eventually I am going to add a couple of links to this with a lot of different break downs/times/features etc. just been busy with Christmas stuff and doing some prototyping for a couple of folks.
