There are smiling faces at Alfa Romeo: the iconic Giulia wins the “mid-size import” category in the readers’ competition of the magazine “auto motor und sport ” . The victory in “Best Cars 2023” is already the sixth success for the Alfa Romeo Giulia in the past seven years.
18 candidates were put to the test by the readers of “auto motor und sport” in the “mid-size import” category, and the Giulia was a winner with 19,5% of the votes.
Also the new Alfa Romeo Tonale proved a favorite. It just missed out on victory by only 0,2% and scores a 2nd place in the category ‘Compact SUV – Importers’. The D-SUV Alfa Romeo Stelvio is also among the top 3 models in the category ‘Large SUV – Importers’.
The Jeep Avenger clearly has won the hearts of the femaile voters. The fully electric Jeep® Avenger is named Best Family SUV in 2023 Women’s World Car of the Year (WWCOTY) awards. A panel of 63 WWCOTY jurors from 45 countries selected the Avenger ahead of 12 other family SUVs.
In January, the Avenger was named European Car of the Year 2023. More than 12,000 units have been sold since the opening of orders for the 1st Edition on Dec 1, 2022 and then the full lineup on Jan 11th, 2023.
The WWCOTY jury praised the Avenger for its “successful design and excellent off-road capability”, and for being “a commitment to the future that customers will appreciate”.
More news soon about the other WWCOTY winners…and we will next week have an extended testdrive with the plug in hybrid Tonale, we are looking forward to it, and soon you will read our comments!
