Best People Mover:
FIRST: Honda Odyssey
SECOND: Dodge Magnum
THIRD: Toyota Sienna

Best Economy Car:

SECOND: Toyota Prius
THIRD: Honda Civic

Best First Car:
FIRST: Honda Civic
SECOND: Mazda 3
THIRD: Ford Focus

Best SUV:

BMW had dominated this list in 2003, with 4 awards. Not the case this year with Bangles cars. National pride also seems to have played a role in the Chevy Corvette scoring over the Carrera GT.

No wonder every truck launched in america has such an inferiority complex!
Every single ad you see for a truck will mention how their truck is better than the F-150 in some aspect..but to no avail

The same reason why NHC won the Autocar 'Car of the year' over the Merc SL500 here in India.
