So, here's how it's gonna work. We're going to be voting on various categories...each category will be voted on for a week until it closes, and then we will take the winner from each category and pit them together for an overall vote. The car that wins overall will be declared Dieselstation Car Of The Year 2006!

To be eligible, a car must've been either a new model or significantly updated for the 2006 model year. A few vehicles have been combined with their "twins" to reduce clutter (for instance, the Mercury Milan and Ford Fusion have been combined). To simplify matters, this car of the year competition focuses only on models sold in the United States...I know, I know, there are a lot of people outside of the US here, but if we were to look worldwide we would have dozens more entries and it would be very confusing. Besides, this is our answer to the stupid Motortrend COTY, which is all about US cars anyway, so let's move on.

There are 67 cars broken down into 12 categories, plus 6 cars have been chosen to be voted on for the "Most Significant" category. The 12 categories are as follows:

Boy Racers (5)
Economy Cars (6)
Entry-level Luxury (5)
Exotics (6)
Family Cars (7)
Hot 4-doors (5) + Tie-breaker (2)
Luxury (5) + Tie-breaker (2)
Sports Cars & Convertibles (6)
Sports Sedans (5)
SUVs under $30k (7)
SUVs over $30k (6)
Trucks (4)

Plus the Most Significant category:

Most Significant (6)

Final voting is here:
Overall DSCOTY vote
Battle of the Honorable mentions

As each category gets posted for voting, it will be linked from this thread. As for the cars in each category, you'll just have to wait and see wink.gif

I will start to post up the polls in the Compare and Contrast forum soon, in no particular order (certainly not alphabetical, too boring). So, enjoy, and happy voting smile.gif

This sounds fun. I can't wait to vote. You have a lot of time on your hands to plan all this out, though. Either that or you're just really really pissed at Motor Trend over the whole Civic thing wink.gif

Haha, I do think that civic thing was dumb, but I love this idea because it sounds like a lot of fun.

And nismo: really, there aren't any new vans for the '06 model year. Only the Mazda 5 and Mercedes R-class come close, and they don't even have sliding doors.

I'm sure you'll find it impossible to resist when we start arguing about the sports cars and exotics.

O_O Props clarkma for actually doing this. I was too lazy smile.gif I
I think our COTY will be better than Motortrend... We don't have car manufacturers paying us to say their car is better than the rest. looks like the Civic is taking a beating tongue.gif
