Coupé finalist: PEUGEOT RCZ
We love the RCZ for its exotic looks, curvy-roofed charm, low-slung sleekness and sheer head-swivelling magnetism.
Here is a pocket supercar for far less money than its voluptuous looks and slick behaviour would lead you to expect.
It even looks fast sitting still, but switch on that 2.0-litre HDi engine, squeeze the throttle, and welcome to a driving experience that is honed and athletic.
It is a road-going missile on target for open road excellence.
Stunning looks and brilliant agility for a little over £23K. Bring it on!
The RCZ is simply terrific, and every bit as good as it looks.
Commended: MINI Coupé
Convertible finalist: MERCEDES-BENZ SLK-CLASS
Pure class with glamour, that’s the SLK.
Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes-Benz, and please make it this one.
The Merc drop-top is an upper-crust convertible that comes equipped with creature comforts as good as its sexy looks.
Mercedes pioneered the air scarf, and it gives the SLK a cosseting ambience when you want to drive rooflessly, whatever the ambient temperature.
With a 2.2-litre engine, this chic two-seater has vivid performance.
It is beautifully built, great fun to drive and even has pretty reasonable economy.
We’re big fans of its strong performance, structural rigidity and impeccable build quality.
Commended: BMW 6 Series Convertible
