When we make a general evaluation on the finalists, we need to highlight the dominance of the crossover / SUV models on the list for the year’s automobile. When we look at the finalists for the luxury car class, we see that with the BMW 5 Series, the Volvo S90 & V90 and the Mercedes E Series, the competition in this segment really has the potential to continue to the last minute. While it is observed that there is not a big surprise in the finalists of green and urban automobiles, we can say that a pleasant competition is waiting for us especially in the design area. Audi’s A5 / S5 Coupe, Jaguar’s F-Pace, Mazda’s CX-9 and Toyota’s C-HR models are success stories for both the cars of the year and the cars with the best designs.The result of the competition will arrive in April.
