The European Car of the Year award is among the most important– and prominent– in the automotive world. Provided yearly to the ‘best’ car in any year, the award, often shortened to ‘COTY’, is announced during the Geneva Motor Show.
This year’s winner is the Peugeot 3008, a trendy and roomy French SUV. We believe it has one of the best interiors of any family vehicle– it’s probably Peugeot’s finest model, and certainly challenges the Nissan Qashqai and Seat Ateca in the small SUV sector.
2nd spot has been taken by the Alfa Romeo Giulia. This trendy saloon represents a return to form for the Italian manufacturer– after an extended duration of relative inactivity, this legendary brand is long past due a new model. While the Giulia couldn’t achieve the top spot, we anticipate this BMW 3 Series competing to become a popular one.
Third place is the Mercedes E-class. This is one of the favourite cars of many. Described as a safe, practical and (above all) comfy chariot, destined to fill driveways and airport taxi ranks throughout Europe. In addition to the saloon, we’re especially impressed with the E-class estate, the E-class All-Terrain 4×4 estate, and the upcoming convertible, they are scheduled to be unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
