The Road to the World Car Awards is an annual journey that follows our 86 international jurors as they test-drive, and vote on, the eligible vehicles for the 2020 awards season.

There are several stops along the road. One of the first took place in Los Angeles in November for our sixth annual “L.A. Test Drives” event hosted by ZF.

Then, the Top 10 and Top Five finalists in five World Car Awards categories were announced live during a press conference held at the Delhi auto show in New Delhi, India on February 5th.

The Road to the World Car Awards will end with a grande finale awards ceremony and press conference that will open the New York International Auto Show on April 8, 2020 during the media breakfast that officially opens the show. All winners in all categories will be declared at this time. 2020 marks the 15th year of the World Car Awards’ partnership with the New York auto show.

The Global Trends Report, produced annually by Cision Insights and our partner Autoneum, will also be presented during the media breakfast at the New York show. The report is the culmination of research and insights across the past six months. Autoneum CEO, Matthias Holzammer said, “At Autoneum, we are constantly striving to set industry standards in automotive noise and heat protection. It is thus a great recognition for us that the majority of finalist models once again benefit from our multifunctional components for acoustic and thermal management. We are confident that thanks to Autoneum’s innovative technologies and products, the 2020 winners will also excel in the sixth year of our successful partnership with the World Car Awards.”

Of course, The Road to the World Car Awards doesn’t really stop. The World Car Garage will be staged at The British Motor Show in August of 2020; offering a glimpse of the 2021 contenders as well as celebrating the 2020 winners. This is the fifth consecutive year that the World Car Garage will be staged at a major motor show in Britain.
