The first stage of the competition European Car Of The Year 2016 has already passed, and after the clashes, and the jury chose the first finalists. Thus from the previous number of 40 car models, the grand final will fight only seven of them. Below they are arranged in alphabetical order.
Opel / Vauxhall Astra
Notice in this case a trend-oriented more towards the premium class models, except Opel Astra compacts and Mazda MX-5. So Europeans tend to buy a car well equipped to provide not only the simplicity movement from A to B but also added safety and comfort. It is true that the new generation of the Opel Astra is able to satisfy these requirements with flying colors, so that made its place among the seven finalists.
And the new BMW 7 Series, the comments about it would be superfluous, but from what you can see, the limo will have to keep their position towards the Volvo XC90, which has established itself well in the market and is at present a bestseller. Audi A4 will face with the newly launched Jaguar XE, but Skoda continues on its own.
