I find it so strange that cars get nominated for these awards before they are even released. It would make so much more sense if they at least waited until the cars were released and some reviews were out. I think that doing the nominating like this makes the award less believable.

Not much info out there about how they judge the vehicles. Some more info on that would be cool. Either some interviews with jury members or a criteria or something.

maybe some auto journalist would know.

All right. I looked it up and here is what the prize is decided on.

Eligible cars are new models released in the twelve months prior to the award. The cars must be available in at least 5 European countries.

Nominees are judged on the following criteria: design, comfort, safety, economy, handling, performance, functionality, environmental requirements, driver satisfaction and price. Innovation and value are also factors.

Seven cars make the shortlist on a simple vote and then the final round of voting sees each jury member with 25 points to distribute among the finalists. Those points must be divided between at least 5 cars with no more than ten to any one car. Apparently every jury member provides justification for their vote distribution.

So there you have it. I'm glad that there is published justifications. That provides more legitimacy.

That sure does help a lot and gives us a better idea of how they're going about this, it will help with making the winner/winners make more sense.
