The thing I noted that all European cars that made the final cut for the European COTY are included in this list, except the Insignia. (Or are the American Journos bound by a pact with GM to net tell the US people that the good GM products are made outside the USA)
Further to this, the Fiat 500 was already last year's European COTY so why it is on this list escapes me.
