Didn't see Nano or any small car of the year award yet.

EDIT:

Honda Jazz wins the car of the year award!

This is the joke of the year. Jazz winning car of the year. Guess this makes one question the credibility of these awards

I sincerely hope that you're joking!!

Ridiculous !!!
In my opinion even if Nano is not considered Fortuner deserves this award more than Jazz.

BTW which intelligent people formed the Jury to select Jazz as COTY.

Looks more like a sponsored award.

Yes, I agree with earlier posts. Did anybody not remind them that April 1st is still a long way off.

The only reason I can think of why Jazz is the car of the year, is because this is the only way Honda can make a few more people buy this car. Am surprised CRV didnt win SUV of the year .

Still remember one magazine awarding Chevy UV-A as COTY, hope they are regreting it and same would be the case with CNB Awards

It was disappointing to see Jazz win CNB Car of the Year award. IMO, it did not deserve to come anywhere close to the COTY award. There were better products launched in 2009 which were like not just by critics but by the general views and end users. And proven by the sales impact.

More than Jazz winning, it was a bigger disappointment to see CNB give this award.
