Jiri Duchon (Czech Republic)

My judgement is based on following grounds:

Alfa Romeo Giulia

After a long while there is a completely new car, no construction set! It refers to the renowned history of the Alfa Romeo brand and indicates its future. Several innovative solutions and components for the FCA group. Above all, excellent performance, unrivalled precision, albeit rather light steering and undisguised orientation to the driver.

 

Citroën C3

Third-generation C3 has stepped out with a clear direction. Although in fast ride still good, it excels mainly in comfort for everyday usage. Suspension is soft and refined and large seats are rather like comfortable armchairs. Distinctive appearance. A wide range of color combinations to the body and interior. Wide-angle camera ConnectedCam for entertainment or protection in case of an accident.

 

Mercedes Clase E

The new E-Class (W213) has not been a disappointment and it’s become one of the best premium cars in its class. It offers all the E-Class traditional customer demands, i.e. large body, superb levels of comfort for rapid transfers on long distances and premium engines from the brand-new OM 654 diesel up to 4.0 l/450 kW (E 63 S). The Drive Pilot system anticipates a fully autonomous control.

 

Nissan Micra

Return of a former star of the Japanese offensive in Europe. Second generation (K11) has become the Car of the Year 1993, and its fifth generation (K14) intends to build on this heritage. The chassis derived from the previous Micra generation, engines known from a variety of Nissan and Renault models. Remarkably spacious interior and stable driving characteristics supported by selectively braked wheels.

 

Peugeot 3008

Peugeot brand has stepped into the society of the SUV segment C with the second generation of 3008 in a happy way. The premiere of the new i-Cockpit II dashboard, which is now not only original and attractive but also perfectly functional. A spacious and variable interior, many useful details and wide range of economical engines. Driving characteristics are unprecedented in this class. Missing all-wheel drive.

 

Toyota C-HR

Type C-HR proves how flexible the TNGA platform is. Based on Prius IV, a compact crossover excels with striking appearance and cleverly combines the features of an SUV and a coupe. Also, the driver`s workplace is genuine, as it builds on the best of the modern tradition of the Toyota brand, but with a clear focus on the European drivers ways. The last generation hybrid drive system in also not missing here.

 

Volvo S90/V90

The new generation of S90/V90 performs surprisingly well in ride comfort, external noises absorption, fine materials and their processing; the CC V90 version then expanding into SUV spheres. Four-cylinder engines only, plug-in hybrid variant T8 included. It stands on the same SPA platform as last year`s XC90, but the S90 sedans and V90 wagons stand out with noticeably better tweaked details.
