Car of the Year 2014 shortlist revealed


The seven-car shortlist for the 2014 Car of the Year (CotY] award has been confirmed.

The jury is looking for the most outstanding new car to go on sale in the last 12 months.

Car of the Year 2014 shortlist:

BMW i3
Citroen C4 Picasso
Mercedes S-Class
Peugeot 308
Skoda Octavia
Tesla Model S

Initially, 32 nominees are chosen by 59 motoring journalists from 23 nations (each juror picks their seven favourites and the most common choices are carried forward.) It’s not just price and performance that matter – safety, value and practicality are valued just as evenly and innovation, tech, and driver enjoyment.

The winner will be announced on March 3, 2014 at the Geneva Motor Show.
