Earning the Car of the Year Award

Motor Trend opened their Car of the Year program to any 2018 model-year vehicle that has been redesigned (aka all-new) or has received significant upgrades. When selecting the winner of the Car of the Year award, Motor Trend takes many factors into consideration. The criteria include the advancements in design, excellence, engineering, safety, value, and overall performance. Motor Trend evaluated twenty-six models this year, in forty-six variations, in order to make sure they choose the absolute best vehicle.

A unique factor of the Motor Trend Car of the Year program is that initially, the contending vehicles are not compared against each other, but tested on their own merits. Motor Trend does thorough tests to measure acceleration, handling, braking, and battery performance. After this initial round of testing, Motor Trend begins to test the vehicles on three different professional automotive courses, before narrowing the competition field to eight finalists.

When it came down to it, the Motor Trend judges all agreed that the Alfa Romeo Giulia is the winner of the Car of the Year award. In fact, Ed Loh, who serves as the Editor-in-Chief of Motor Trend, called the Alfa Romeo Giulia the "ultimate driving machine". Loh also stated that the all-new Giulia is maybe the "finest handling sedan on the market."
