The finalists for the 2010 South African Snoozefest Car of the year have been announced. The finalists in no particular order of monotony are:

  • Alfa Romeo Mito 1.4i Turbo Petrol
  • Audi Q5 2.0 T STronic
  • Chevy Cruze 1.8 LS
  • Hyundai i20 1.6 GLS
  • Suzuki Alto 1(!) litre GLS
  • Toyota Prius
  • VW Golf 6 1.4 TSI 90 kw Comfortline
  • Volvo XC60 3.0T Geartronic

From here on the finalists go on a couple of tests which include high speed dynamic assessment, parking ability, handling and other tests all while monitoring the fuel consumption.

I suppose they will have a proper car to tow some of these babies around to get them to high speed because on their own steam they won’t get there.

Anyway, which one do you think will win and why – leave a comment.

“The new Cruze will be the next milestone in Chevrolet Europe’s motorsports history. So far, we have achieved every goal we set in 2005, step by step: challenge the competition, score points, prove we can win and then become regular frontrunners against competition with an established motorsports resume. With the Cruze, we will put the bar even higher and firmly aim at winning the World Championship. Chevrolet’s unique ‘trump card’ is having worked with the same team, engineers and drivers for the past four seasons, with the success we all know. To be able to do this again with the Cruze will only help to increase our chances of achieving our goals.” said Eric Nève, Manager for Chevrolet Europe Motorsport.

Another leakage in the car market and some more guys to appreciate it. Yes, we do appreciate when we can see the new version/model before the official debut at motor shows. Today it’s Chevy’s turn to show us some spice. Their new electric vehicle (car), Chevy Volt, appears in a few shots with all sorts of “models” that don’t seem to be prepared. Honestly, we’d have expected young women close to the car instead of ties and suits

But back to Chevy Volt, the company released a couple of teaser images last few months but this time we have it for real so ladies and gents, this is how the new Chevrolet Volt is going to look. That’s the actual production model. How do you like it? Beats Prius? Would you buy one?
