Autocar Car Of The Year
There was plenty of new-car action in this popular class of the AMI NZ Autocar Car of the Year awards.
Two Hondas figured large: first, the ninth-generation Civic sedan launched, and then the Civic Euro hatch, which uses similar mechanicals but has both a sportier body shape and more up-for-it dynamics. The Civics convince on many fronts.
Also in contention is Subaru's new Impreza, which majors on improved fuel economy, space and refinement, at the expense of sportiness and character.
