The shortlist for the 2009 Car of the Year award has been announced, and the winner will be revealed at the Autocar Awards on November 17th. Seven cars are still in the running, whittled down from the 40 that were entered for the prize.
The finalists are the Alfa Romeo Mito, the Citroen C5, Ford’s new Fiesta, the Vauxhall Insignia, the Renault Megane, Skoda’s new Superb and the Mk6 VW Golf.
The competition is judged by 59 of Europe’s best-respected motoring journalists from 23 countries and is organised by Europe’s leading car magazines, including Autocar. Our own Steve Cropley is one of the UK members of the COTY jury.
We’ll have full details of the COTY winner after the ceremony, as well as the winners of the other categories of the Autocar Awards.
