Evo has announced its winner.
It's that time of year again where we reflect on the last 12 months of automotive achievement. To get us in the spirit, UK car magazine Evo has hosted its annual Car of the Year Awards in an extended video showcasing the best rides of 2016. To find out which car was most deserving of the coveted award, the team hosted a special gathering of cars from a range of categories, from hybrid supercars to hot hatches.
Among the nominated cars for the award include (deep breath) the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, BMW M4 GTS, VW Golf GTI Clubsport S, Honda NSX, McLaren 570S, Porsche 911R, BMW M2, Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2, Ford Focus RS, Aston Martin Vantage GT8, Audi R8 V10 Plus and the Mercedes AMG C63 S Coupe. Quite a star-studded line-up, we're sure you'll agree.
The aim here was not to find which car was the fastest or most economical, but which car puts the biggest smile on your face, which explains why an Aston Martin Vantage is being pitted against a VW Golf. It's refreshing to see the emphasis on how the car makes you feel rather than its mechanics. Which car came out on top? Revealing the winner would be a disservice to Evo's efforts, so you'll have to watch the video to find out! Do you agree with the winner?
