Rune Korsvoll (Norway)

My judgement is based on following grounds:

Alfa Romeo Giulia

The Giulia is for car-lovers. Both the design and the feeling behind the wheel is that of a good sportscar. The reason for my one-point-only, is that the Norwegian market for this car is week, and there is no drivetrain for a sustainable future.

 

Citroën C3

The new Citroën C3 has a styling that makes it stand out from the crowd. For a small car, the roominess is good, its easy to handle and has a really competitiv pricing. The C3 lacks some safety equipment and there is no sign of electrification.

 

Mercedes Clase E

One of the most comfortable cars I ever have driven. The seats are really good, the noice-level inside extremely low and the new digital cockpit ever so good. The roominess of the wagon, which is the most sold model in Norway, is better than in most competitors.

 

Nissan Micra

A small car does not have to be boring. The new Nissan Micra proves this. The car has been transformed from a rather dull micro to a small but much roomier good looking car. The Micra comes as standard with a lot of safety-equipment not seen in small cars before.

 

Peugeot 3008

From MPV to SUV. The transformation of the Peugeot 3008 is a really lucky one. The salesfigures from the first weeks in the showroom shows this. A very good car in most respects. Sad that PSA is lagging behind in electrification.

 

Toyota C-HR

– Never again a boring car from Toyota, Akio Toyoda said. And so it is. The C-HR has a dramatic styling that attracts younger buyers. The new hybrid drivetrain is more efficient than ever and contributes to low consumption and low emissions. An affordable car in the midst of the SUV-trend.

 

Volvo S90/V90

A super-elegant and at the same time practical design, should bring the Volvo S90/V90 one of the top spots this year. In addition, the car has great comfort and safety equipment never seen in a car before. The emergency-brake for bikes as vell as large animals is a good example of usefull equipment for Nordic roads.
