2010 European Car of the Year nominees announced

2010 European Car of the Year

The European Car of the Year contest is usually stacked with European cars, of course, if not cars from around the world that are sold in Europe. But this year, the fight is being waged almost exclusively between European cars with outside manufacturers barely getting a look in.

The candidates for the 2010 awards were announced back in June, but that’s really just a long list of vehicles that are eligible. Now the panel of automotive journalists from across the continent have chosen their seven nominees among from which the final winner will be selected.

Those up for the prize are:

  • Citroen C3 Picasso
  • Mercedes-Benz E-Class
  • Opel/Vauxhall Astra
  • Peugeot 3008
  • Skoda Yeti
  • Toyota iQ
  • Volkswagen Polo

The iQ is the only non-European product in with a chance, and the Mercedes the only car among the finalists even currently available in the North American market.

The winner should be announced by the end of November.
