European Car of the Year 2017 shortlist candidates

The finalists for the annual European Car of the Year award have been announced for 2017. Chosen by a combined panel of 58 journalists from 22 European countries, over 30 contenders in the first round were narrowed down to just seven vehicles from Alfa Romeo, Toyota, Mercedes and others.


Combining a field of premium sedans, superminis, and two SUVs, the finalists are as follows:


  • Alfa Romeo Giulia
  • Citroen C3
  • Mercedes-Benz E-Class
  • Nissan Micra
  • Peugeot 3008
  • Toyota C-HR
  • Volvo S90/V90



Of the seven finalists, all but two are European models (the Nissan Micra and Toyota C-HR), and just one marque (Volvo) has never won the award. To make things more interesting, neither an American or Korean marque made the final cut, nor any EV or hybrid models.
