Strange thing though is that there doesnt seem to be a category for MPVs unlike previous years.
Good luck guys!!

This could be a case of people voting based on the car they drive(private hire) and some people just voting based on its price and not value
Furthermore I believe that ‘compact’ in the Car of The Year should be branched out as it is too broad a segment to be considered as one.
They could put subcompact and compact instead.

It has big shoes to fill with its predecessor setting a high benchmark. It faces huge competition from Benz E class whose interior oozes class but I still feel this G30 overall package makes it a winner!!

I seriously wonder who chose the nominees. Especially for the "premium hatchback class".
...CLA shooting brake in station wagon class and winning?

No Japanese and Korean authorised distributors bring in anymore station wagons as it is not profitable.
As for now , station wagons a a cool factor associated with continental Brand’s which is just plainly wrong.
Secondly , nobody wants to trust their money in a brand that they have rarely heard about since Seat’s previous distributorship ended in 2002/3(can’t remember)
What makes things worse is it’s dealership that has experience in selling only Chery cars but not cars of VAG , which makes them doubt if they can ever understand their cars better than Volkswagen Centre Singapore at all.
As such, people choose the cheapest station wagon in line- Mercedes Benz CLA Shooting Brake (Picture 1)
which has the brand factor but is quite impractical as compared to the Toyota Auris Touring Sport (picture 2) the rear door opening can’t quite fit bigger boxes unlike most station wagons and seating may be affected as roofline of steeply raked towards the back of the CLA.
Seriously I believe station wagons should , and will experience a revival.
Station wagons are practical for loading goods and you can sometimes load much more than you could in a sedan for just a couple of thousands more
Maybe authorised distributors should try to convince singaporeans to buy stationwagons by stating the benefits of them etc (most likely impossible)
I really love station wagons and they are definitely alive and kicking with style and essence ,so why are they dead in Singapore?
