Now the jury has cut the list of contenders to seven and these cars have qualified for the final of the "Car of the Year 2016". One of the cars in the top seven: The new Opel Astra which has already won international awards such as SAFETYBEST 2015 and the 2015 Golden Steering Wheel in less than two months. Opel's compact class bestseller is now hoping to get as many votes as possible from the 58 journalists representing prestigious publications such as Le Figaro, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Stern, La Stampa, El Mundo or The Daily Telegraph.
The European Car of the Year award was founded in 1964. In recent years, Opel has come out on top twice - with the Insignia in 2009 and the Ampera in 2012. The 2016 winner will be announced on the eve of the Geneva Motor Show on February 29, 2016.
