Toyota Yaris344 points

Car of The year
A new dog fight for the first place, but this time the innovative MPV Fiat Multipla would lose in front of the Toyota Yaris. The Japanese car, bound to future production in France, had also unusual but much more pleasant looks inside and out, and a certain versatility in its cozy cabin, with an sliding rear bench. The small car was also given the most brilliant and efficient 1.0 liter engine money can buy, with 68 hp. Two-box 3 and 5-door body styles had the complement of a tall Verso MPV version.
