Isn't a world car of the year supposed to be somewhat affordable for everyone, besides it being an excellent car?
if so, the bimmer and the jag would have to be taken off.

Well, the Ford Mondeo won World Car of the Year, so there certainly doesn't need to be the luxury cars there.

All this talk of whether these cars are sold in America or whether Americans are fat or whatever doesn't matter you are all overlooking the real problem and that is how can we vote on the 2009 World Car of the Year when its January 27?! Shouldn't this be the 2008 WCOTY? Or The 2009 for the Calender Year 2008 World Car of the Year?

The winner should probably be either the 500 or the Fiesta.

I thought for some reason you were also calling the car fat and wanted to disprove this.

To be honest, it is fun when everyone gets along but I do enjoy arguing/debating/discussion to an extent and this and the DS/SL thread has been a lot of fun for me.

Next time, use a damn smiley!
Don't worry. I will definitely use more smileys per post from now on. Like this one: .

I like discussing as well, so in the end it's all good.

And I can't believe the Fiesta is winning, the Mazda 2 is just it and already won last year. Oh, and for what it is the GT-R is quite affordable.

Yes.

We do.

That explains why there are no GM lovers perusing this thread. They're bigoted enough to not notice that other countries make cars too.

Plus, if the Opel Insignia is so good, how come it isn't available in it's home country? Epic fail. That's why we forget.

Cue the new advertising campaign:

Opel Insignia = 'Unmistakably American'

It is actually. It's called the Buick La Crosse.

and should be available as a Chevy too, sometime.

as far as some journalists are supposed to decide, this is another pointless prize. even more considering an expert on cars like the 500 or Fiesta doesn't have a decent cue on a Journey or other cars from NA and viceversa.
as if they know enough about their own cars...

Almost entirely irrelevant to the real world but incredibly fascinating. I could have either taken # theory or stat this year but I love subjects that exist in a vacuum, so did number theory.
@ Rocke: Become a stripper.
Yeah, taken several for the fun of it, then realized I have a math minor now. Crazy/irrelevant math is great stuff.

I'd totally become a stripper, but no one would pay to see my furry butt, so it's not worth it. Besides, I hate to dance. I don't know about other parts of the world, but you can make a boat load of money in a short amount of time doing that here if you look good enough and I am nothing if not greedy and lazy.

Too bad the mean age of those who are interested in buying any Buick is >76 years old.

Fact of the matter is, it wouldn't look cool to be driving a Buick. It's always had that impression that it was always grandpappy's car. And it still is as far as I'm concerned. I'd rather drive a Cadillac CTS.
