I think we need to have something like they do in Europe, where something like 10 magazines come together and vote a european car of the year. Otherwise everyone from malayala manorama to patna times declares their own winner.

Speaking of which, european COTY went to the Ford S-max. Read on

Car of the Year

I think they did start the Indian Car of the year last year itself, where Swift won the honours. And Apache won amongst the bikes.

The prettiest (actually hottest) woman in an advert, any advert, IMHO, is Sheetal Mallar. That she happens to be in the Indigo Marina ad makes the car deserving of Automobile of the Century, Technology of the Decade, etc. etc.

Car of the Year
Good point!

BTW, Went through COTY website and their voting grid. None of the car is clearly head and shoulders above other. e.g. COTY gets 0 points from few juries. Again, nationalities seem to play a role too. All the french voters have generally voted for Citroen. It may be good car, but then this is more of bias than merit of the car.
