The Finalists For The 2021 European Car Of The Year Awards Are...

The list of finalists for the 2021 ECOTY has been announced and sadly, none of them are sold in Malaysia.

It's that time of the year again where the list of cars in contention to win the European Car of the Year (ECOTY) gets whittled down to the last seven finalists.

From an initial list of 38 to seven, the winner of the 2021 ECOTY will be chosen by a group of 60 jurors, consisting of automotive journalists from 23 European countries.

The final voting for this year's Car of the Year will happen at the end of February. The winner will be announced online on March 1, 2021.

Fun facts: The European Car of the Year awards have been around since 1964, where the Rover 200 became the first-ever car to receive the ECOTY award. Last year, the Peugeot 208 won the 2020 ECOTY award.

Without further ado, here are the seven cars in contention for the 2021 European Car of the Year.
