European Car of the Year 2013 details. The Candidates list. Audi A3 was eliminated in the first round and didn't make the final shortlist. The New Golf was an easy winner when you look at the voting scores.
What Car of the Year 2013 - Best Small Family Car - Glowing praise for the A3 Sportback here.
I would have thought the A3 would have at least made the shortlist!
