The is the brand new 2013 European Car of the Year winner. The model had to battle with the Ford B-MAX, the Hyundai i30, the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, the Peugeot 208, the Renault Clio, the Subaru BRZ / Toyota GT 86 and the Volvo V40.

The previous winner of the prestigious 2013 European Car of the Year award was the Opel / Vauxhall Ampera (Chevroelt Volt), which has managed to impress the jury despite some string competition from the new generation of the Ford Focus or the brand new Volkswagen Up! and its brothers from Seat and Skoda, the Mii and the Citigo.
