Juan Carlos Payo (Spain)

My judgement is based on following grounds:

Alfa Romeo Giulia

“Bravissimo” for the new Alfa. Pure passion when you drive a very different sedan. “Bellissimo stilo”, great efforts in terms of quality. Without hybrid or electrical solutions. Only one silhouette while its competitors offer three or four posibilities…

 

Citroën C3

I like its fresh exterior and interior design, I like the sensation of space on the front seats –it looks like you are in a compact car-, I like the comfort level obtained by Citroën in terms of suspension and seats. If this is the first step in a new Citroën, I am confident in the future of this brand.

 

Mercedes Clase E

It`s an enormous car in terms of quality, technical solutions, bodies, safety… The problem is the limited segment where it must to compete.

 

Nissan Micra

Micra plays the role of sporty design –too masculine for me-. Fun to drive. You enjoy driving it. It provides a large number of unknown solutions in terms of active safety in this B segment. Small engine range.

 

Peugeot 3008

It is my favorite, without a doubt. COTY deserves this 3008 as its first SUV winner. Enormous evolution: Different exterior design, attractive interior if you talk about design, qualities and capabilities. I liked i-cockpit in 208, and now, in 3008, it is almost perfect. And if you need more space, you have the XL version, 5008.

 

Toyota C-HR

I can praise, at last, a Toyota car talking about style. Absolutely different, especially in its exterior view. Pure character Toyota in terms of qualities, feeling when you drive, hybrid solutions... A big surprise, the 1.2 T engine to boost this C-HR as a more emotional car.

 

Volvo S90/V90

Other E segment in our finalists –low sales volumes-. All arguments S90 presents now debuted one year ago with XC90. Equilibrated engine range with the plus of plug-in, three silhouettes, quality and design… Good product.
