How Do Europe’s Car Of The Year Winners Compare To The World’s Winners?

Award

Not all of these cars deserve to be here.

In terms of the year of 2016, we have just gotten past June, also known as hump month. Being that we are now halfway through the year, most customers and press outlets alike have managed to drive this year’s new automobile releases to determine which ones are the hits and which cars can be tossed into the losing pile. Of course, the winners write history and unless an automaker makes a car so notoriously bad that it earns a spot in our crusher, only the cream of the crop get ink spilled over them.

To get to the bottom of the matter, UK’s Auto Express tested their favorite European cars to see which make the list. Here are the results. -City Car of the Year: Skoda Citigo -Supermini of the Year: Volkswagen Polo -Premium Small Car of the Year: Mini Cooper -Compact Family Car of the Year: Vauxhall Astra -Family Car of the Year: Skoda Superb -Estate Car of the Year: Skoda Superb Estate -MVP of the Year: Citroen Gran C4 Picasso -Crossover of the Year: SEAT Ateca -Compact SUV of the Year: Jaguar F-Pace
