The jury of the 2014 Car of the Year has recently announced the 30 candidates which will battle for the prestigious award.

After the new generation of the Volkswagen Golf 7 has been awarded with the 2013 Car of the Year back in March, time has come for the 2014 Car of the Year candidates to be announced. The winner will be selected by a jury with 58 members from 22 European countries. The 30 cars in question are brand new and they are already on sale or will be for sale by the end of the year in at least 5 countries from the Old Continent. A short list of just 7 cars will be announced in December while the winner will “pick up” its trophy during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.
