European Car of the Year – finalists announced image

The finalists of the prestigious European Car of the Year awards have been recently announced and the big winner will be known in a few months, during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

As with every end of the year, 2014 is also bringing us the finalists of the prestigious European Car of the Year awards. This is basically the shortened list, announced by the jury back in July, and from the 33 vehicles mentioned back then, the list has been shortened once more to just seven cars, from very different classes.

The big winner of the 2014 European Car of the Year award will be announced by the jury consisting of 58 specialized journalists, during the 2015th edition of the Geneva Motor Show, which will officially open its gates for the public, next March. Last year, the award has been won by the new generation of the Peugeot 308 and a year before that, the Volkswagen Golf Mk7 was declared the winner.
