    Wot no F-Pace?!:

    http://www.carscoops.com/2016/11/the...-european.html

    Shome mistake, surely!

    Seriously, though, with Autocar one of the sponsors of the award, how bad must the F-Pace have been in other jurors' eyes for it not to even make the shortlist?

    And why no XF? Did they think it was simply a LWB XE?

    Seems the rest of Europe don't share the "Jag Booming/iPace a 'Game-changer'/10,000 new jobs(could be)..." screeching headlines of the UK/US axis of BS.

    LOL - Have to feel sorry for the "European automotive press".

    When the market is tilting completely to SUVs and electrified vehicles, they have a single SUV and zero EVs on their list.

    Talk about being irrelevant.

    Actually, the BMW 7 Series is there, and is actually the best car in their ridiculous list of finalists, followed by the A4 and the MX-5. But knowing this group of clowns, they will probably give the win to the Skoda or some other loser car.

    The Peugeot 3008 and Toyota C-HR are SUVs, well, crossovers, and are precisely at the ground zero of Europe's current love affair with high-er riding compact faux SUVs. Also, the Volvo S90/V90 could be included, as the V90 Cross Country model is already launched.

    that was 2016. It will go to the Alfa Giulia - deservedly - or the E-Class. No wonder Autocar is making no play of the news of the 2017 shortlist.

    you're right, no BMW in 2017 shortlist, but given today's first drive reports of the new 5-Series, and even the UK journos failing to insert the usual hackneyed caveat: 'yes the BMW is uber-fantastic, but the XF has it knocked into a cocked hat for handling and driving pleasure(but f*** all else) thanks to its F-Type's derived chassis and Mike Cross's voodoo knowhow', it looks like 2017 will be the year of the BMW, with the 5-Series and new X3, both on the all-new 'CLAR' platform.

    I doubt Jaguar will be losing any sleep over the fact that the F Pace is not on the shortlist as the European Car of the Year is about as relevant to selecting a good car as the Eurovision song contest is to finding a decent song.

    Looking back over previous years winners, none from Jaguar, Land Rover or BMW but nine from Fiat!
