CarBuzz Announces 2020 Awards Finalists

The competition was tougher than ever

CarBuzz Awards

After extensive research and analysis, the finalists for the 2020 CarBuzz Awards have been announced by CarBuzz. These Awards identify class-leading vehicles reviewed during 2020 across ten categories. "Despite canceled car shows and travel restrictions this year, carmakers have ensured we get to see and drive their latest models," said Adam Lynton, CarBuzz Editor-in-Chief. "We have tested and reviewed over 500 cars this year. Winners will be announced on December 21, 2020."

People's Car

For the best all-round vehicle that sells for less than the average new car transaction price (based on starting MSRP).

Family Fun

The winner will be the vehicle, costing less than $40,000, with enough space for all family members and their cargo, while still delivering some enjoyment.

Save The Planet Car

For the vehicle that offers excellent efficiency without sacrificing quality, desirability, and enjoyment.

  • 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid
  • 2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo S
  • 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime

Off-Road Warrior

Nominees include trucks/SUVs offering the most enjoyment on unpaved roads across various forms of off-roading, catering to a range of driver skill sets.

Tech Lover's Dream

For the car boasting the coolest features pertaining to safety, comfort, and performance. Innovative, fresh elements receive higher consideration.

  • 2020 BMW M8 Gran Coupe
  • 2021 Cadillac Escalade
  • 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLS 63

Surprise of The Year

Nominees are those that have taken the biggest leap forward from a previous generation, are most improved, or over-deliver in intended function.

Poster Car

For the vehicle that is most likely to serve as inspiration for automotive enthusiasts by its combination of beauty and performance.

  • 2020 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante
  • 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
  • 2020 McLaren GT

Family Luxury

These nominees have no cap on price; comfort and opulence are heavily weighted, although spacious interiors are also important.

Best Interior

For the vehicle with the most impressive cabin across price ranges. A less expensive car can compete with exotics by offering a stellar interior for its price point.

  • 2020 Bentley Flying Spur
  • 2021 Rolls-Royce Ghost
  • 2020 Ram 1500 Limited

Track Weapon

Power, driving feel, braking efficiency, and drama are important here; the winner will be the vehicle that enthusiasts would most want to race around the track.

  • 2020 Lotus Evora GT
  • 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
  • 2020 Nissan GT-R Nismo

To be considered, vehicles had to be available for a week-long test drive or first drive event during 2020. Road car testers have no affiliation to any carmaker; finalists and winners are selected on merit alone. Winners will be announced on Dec. 21, 2020.
