Ford Fiesta... very predictable result, but a fair one.
Haha, funny, isn't it, that all the contenders for Compact Exec are 3ers. ;)

Yeah that took me by surprise, it seems the BMW 3-Series is still unmatched even with the new and improved C-Class and blink-and-miss A4:lol: The other categories that surprised me where the Coupe and SUV, i expected the Scirocco to come first given its rave reviews and relatively good price. Also the Volvo did better than i expected

Good job Fiesta. I'm glad that people see the 3-series as better than the C-Class and A4 over there also.

Yes, the 3er's awards were fair. After all, BMW has the Compact Exec class licked.
