Wojciech Sierpowski (Poland)

My judgement is based on following grounds:

Alfa Romeo Giulia

If I was guided solely by emotions, in the first place I would put a 510HP Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio; beautiful in every aspect and rare streetrace car. But we should also consider the price of the vehicle - including the basic model - and properties valued in everyday driving. It is a pity that we cannot take into account the model Stelvio in the range of Giulia.

 

Citroën C3

Next positions were taken ex aequo by Citroen C3, Nissan Micra and Volvo S90. Citroen C3, with a fresh design, looks great from the outside. Its interior is spacious, but the dashboard feels too heavy and is set too high.

 

Mercedes Clase E

The same could be said for the Mercedes E. But the thing is that Mercedes was not in my "seven". I do not understand why Mercedes does not invite members of the Polish jury to have a test drive of the car that participates in the most prestigious, automotive competition in the world.

 

Nissan Micra

Micra has returned to Europe, so it could use a more European design of front and sides (no wave), as well as the standard door handle in the rear doors. Micra has the nicest interior in its class.

 

Peugeot 3008

SUVs and Crossovers had a strong entry to the European market and it is now the perfect time to reward this class. For me Peugeot 3008, taking into consideration all of the characteristics and its very modern look, is a good opportunity for this. It stands out because of its agressive and expressive front, spacious interior and the i-cockpit solution. Every time I change the 3008 to another car, all steering wheels feel too big. Peugeout 3008 has everything what is needed in terms of driving, comfort and specifications.

 

Toyota C-HR

The same number of points as Alfa Romeo receives Toyota C-HR. Its design is so courageous and malleable as it is almost controversial. In terms of driving it is ok. We can get the impression that the car goes smoothly and easy accelerates. That’s a pity that the proportion of the rear door windows has not been changed (claustrophobic feeling, poor visibility), and that a standard door handle was not choose.

 

Volvo S90/V90

Volvo S90 deserves a higher position for most of the reasons, but the price reduces them in my eyes. As expected, the Swedish auto represents the highest technical level - including the level of security.
