Who will win car of the year now that Geneva Motor show is cancelled?
One of the highlights of the Geneva Motor Show each year is the announcement of its expert panel’s ‘Car of the Year’.
But the show has been cancelled this year, and while the announcement is still going ahead for tomorrow, March 2nd (the day the show was supposed to open) there are only seven cars still in the running.
Back in November, the Car of the Year organization published a shortlist of 2020 Car of the Year finalists. The cars were picked by a panel of car experts, from more than 20 different countries.
If all goes ahead has planned, then one of the following cars should take home the Car of the Year gong (unless the announcement is cancelled).
We will find out tomorrow. Until then, check out the finalists below:
The new version of BMW’s sub-compact came out last May. Those in Europe can choose between five engine types and three transmission options.
Ford’s crossover SUV is both affordable and practical. It gives you a load of new tech (like a hybrid engine) and like the BMW, it’s also only sold in Europe.
Cute and compact, the Peugeot 208 for 2020 marks the first time in the model’s history that you can pick up the hot hatchback in all-electric version.
Porsche’s first battery-electric sports car ever made by the German automaker. It lags behind Tesla’s Model S when it comes to performance, however still marks a huge step forward by Porsche into the future of electric vehicles.
The latest Clio has a sportier look, as well as a load of new technology that help drivers stay connected in 2020.
Tesla Model 3
Tesla is well-ahead of the competition when it comes to electric vehicles, so it’s no surprise that it’s a finalist again in 2020. The new Model 3 can drive more than 600-kilometres on a single charge, and can go from zero to a hundred in just two seconds.
The Corolla has been one of the best selling cars each year since it was originally produced, way back in 1966. The new Corolla is the best-selling car model in existence, and the new version doubles-down on everything that made the original great.
Last year, the award went to Jaguar’s I-Pace, due to its “value for money” and innovation.
