COTY 2002 - and the winner is...

SO, who which would you put your dosh on?

Barra's got some tough competition..

My gut feeling tells me the Camry will walk away with the spoils...:dead:

A small part of me is hoping the VY takes it away, just so I can witness the reaction on FF..

I think it'll be a toss up between the BArra and the 6. I voted BArra because I'm a wishful thinker...

I'd like to think the bA will get up, but I wouldn't be surprised if the Mazda 6, Focus, Astra or Barina get up.. Corolla would be in with a show too you'd think.

I'm thinking that either the barra or the focus will take it.
i mean, that's not because i'm biased but i seriously see them as being the favorites. the toyota competitor (camry) and the holden (most likely the barina or astra) will be close.

The Camry's really not that impressive a car. So far nothing had been praised for lifting the bar in Aussie production vechicals more that the Barra. If it doesn't win I'll be burning Wheels office down.

I doubt Focus would win, I don't think it would deserve it either.

I know Falcon won't. I think Falcon DOES deserve it, but the day a falcon wins car of the year is the day i'll declare I'm a Chinaman.

A bit premature I think, but I doubt Falcon or Focus will win anyway on the single fact that they wear Ford badges. Therefore they are automatically excluded from the running no matter how good they are. Just the way it goes with these magazines I'm afraid :-(

Errr, Barina won COTY last year, Astra is a good 2 years old:dead:

I reckon it will be between Mazda 6, Barra and the E-Class (thats if they sell enough before the cut-off date).

If it runs true to form, Falcon will run second to Subaru Liberty - oh wait, no new Subes this year....

So the winner must be - ANOTHER generic mid-sized japanese car that few people buy or care about - Mazda6



Wheels spend a load of time justifying why Falcon has lost the last 2 times. Let's see'm f**k over the Barra and smile!
