Every year, several publications and companies — including Business Insider and Motor Trend — release their picks for its “Car of the Year” award.
Robb Report claims the first super-SUV is a “class-defying breed” because of its six drive modes and aerodynamically optimized drive and handling, according to Robb Report.
“The power and strength of the Urus combined with a magical interior make this an exceptional vehicle,” one judge told Robb Report. “It has multiple personalities, and I love them all.”
2020 Chevrolet Corvette
The Detroit Free Press claims that while the Corvette still has its iconic lights and fenders, the car is “better than those who dreamt of it could have expected.”
The daily newspaper says this is because the engine — which places 60% of the weight on the rear wheels — outfits the car with a zero-to-60 mph time of less than 3 seconds with the Z51 package.
The Corvette was also named car of the year by Motor Trend. One of the guest judges initially noted that the vehicle was quiet for a supercar.
Business Insider selected the RAM 1500 pickup because it’s the “most plush-driving and provocatively designed full-size pickup on sale today, making it the perfect full-size for the modern buyer,” Business Insider wrote while describing its Car of the Year choice.
The RAM also has “robust” specs and a four-wheel independent suspension that provides durability to the pickup truck, according to BI.
The I-PACE is the only all-electric car on the list and won three titles at the World Car Awards: 2019 World Car of the Year, the 2019 World Green Car, and the 2019 World Car Design of the Year. This is the first time a car has won three categories in the same year and was selected by a panel of 86 automotive journalists from 24 countries, according to the World Car Awards.
“For I-PACE to be awarded 2019 World Car of the Year gives our first all-electric vehicle the ultimate recognition it deserves,” Land Rover CEO Dr. Ralf Speth said in a statement.
Toyota GR Supra
“Sports cars need to be for everyone, and the new Supra delivers,” Esquire wrote.
“This model is resonating with a broader range of people than ever before and Mazda aims to make a special bond with customers by offering products, technologies, and services that appeal to more people,” Mazda spokesperson Ayumu Doi said in a statement.
