Alberto Mallo (Spain)

My judgement is based on following grounds:

Alfa Romeo Giulia

All in this car has one objective: driving pleasure. And they have achieved it from the basic version, not just with the superb Quadrifoglio. Light, precise, safe, fast… Giulia is the modern and true “virus alfa”. Alfa Romeo becomes great in the core premium segment again.


Citroën C3

Unconventional design, great possibilities of customization and good roominess characterize the new Citroën C3. Touch screen on the dashboard and connected cam are other of his arguments versus an aging platform. The automatic transmission is a great refinement in this category.


Mercedes Clase E

Is the best of Mercedes-Benz in the modern era, but the pricing politic of the brand makes mandatory to appeal the long list of options to shape a decent package.


Nissan Micra

The super-mini category grows in contents thanks to Nissan. An example is the braking emergency system, standard on Micra from the basic level. Roominess, safety and handling are strong arguments in this car to fight for leadership. Petrol engines are not enough convincing.


Peugeot 3008

Peugeot 3008 is a pleasant car in every condition or driving style. Nice design, sporty and practical. It proposes new trends in interior style with near superb execution. Decent performances off-road with just 2 wheel drive, thanks to hill descent assist system and ground clearance.


Toyota C-HR

A radical design, without limits or concessions, characterizes the Toyota C-HR, which comes to changes the stylistic criteria applied so far by the Japanese brand. If the change is great outside, inside it still has more substance. Just the hybrid version, less satisfactory than on Prius, is not enough to compete with other alternatives.


Volvo S90/V90

I like it more than the strong XC90. Dynamically, the new Volvo offers big satisfaction. From the exterior design point of view, both bodies are extremely pure. The interior is plenty of personality and high quality materials. Volvo S90/V90 also demonstrates the solid foundation of the SPA architecture.
