    And this is how the engines are rated:

    During a 2-month testing period, Ward's editors evaluate each engine according to a
    number of objective and subjective criteria in everyday driving situations – there
    is no instrumented testing. The selection takes into account power and torque output,
    noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) levels, technical relevance and basic
    comparative numbers. Each engine competes against all others.

    This from a country that uses the size of a cars cup holders to evaluate a car :)

    How do they measure NVH without instruments?
    Weird.
