A list of 35 candidates in the running for the 2020 European Car of the Year award has been whittled down to just seven.

So, which vehicles are in the running? Well, here they are, in alphabetical order: the BMW 1 Series, Ford Puma, Peugeot 208, Porsche Taycan, Renault Clio, Tesla Model 3 and Toyota Corolla.

A second round of voting will follow to determine the overall winner, which will be revealed on 2 March 2020, the eve of the Geneva International Motor Show. The jury comprises some 60 judges representing 23 European countries. 

Jaguar's I-Pace won the award in 2019, narrowly beating the Alpine A110 in a tie-breaker.

The Volvo XC40 claimed the gong in 2018, while the Peugeot 3008 took top honours in 2017. The Opel Astra triumphed in 2016, the Volkswagen Passat in 2015, the Peugeot 308 in 2014 and the Volkswagen Golf in 2013.
