The European Car of the Year is more or less a joke.

Number of times BMW has won the award? Zero.
Number of times Audi has won the award? One.
Number of times Fiat has won the award? Nine.
Number of times Renault has won the award? Six.

If someone is seriously suggesting that over the past 45 years Fiat and Renault have made the best cars in the world, he should go have his head checked.

who knows what their criteria is. One seems to be "give the car 10 extra points if most likely no one will ever buy it"
