What do you think about the list? What is you winning car?
The Passat is IMO not very innovative, and actually a sophisticated but boring car, and basically a supersized Golf, which has already won, so basically it would receive the award twice and that is the same The i8 is interesting, but probably too exotic.
Given the preference for cheap and cheerful cars, I'd put my money on the C4 Cactus, as it is both lightweight and economic, has some funky technical solutions and is cheap, or the Twingo, which has similar features. Usually COTY judges like these features.
But then again, some of the choices in the last years have been more than weird, so who knows. We might end up with something no one expected...
