Pretty nice list made by TopGear. Has many favorites of mine such as the Discovery 3, S Type Diesel, Monaro and the Golf!

Totally agree with the list. All cars are brilliant and specially the car of the year. The Golf totally deserves the title.

I couldn't have put it better. The VW Golf has bagged the "What Car" Car of the Year award too.

I think the list is just perfect and surely Golf GTi deserves the award and always expected that, but it is surprising to see two of the Maserati cars.
