This was a hard category. In the end, the GT3 represents, for me, excellence over the others.

It's hard to come to this thread and not vote for the GT3 - for so many reasons..I won't go into detail. Jetta wagon - isn't that just an extended Golf?

Having said that, I must give honorable mention to the Kia Forte. I've heard lots of good things about it and it looks fantastic; this and the Soul - Kia is on a roll.

Now, can someone please explain why the Transit van is even part of the DS polls?

I was gonna vote for the Kia until I saw the GT3. It's almost impossible for me to vote against the GT3, I don't care what the question is! "Best family sedan?" "GT3 motherfucker!!!! lol. Ok that's ridiculous but I love that car, all time favorite status.

I would totally find a way to fit a baby seat to that rollcage if it meant I could own one.

Hooray! I voted Kia because my neighbor just bought one and I feel like fanboying Kia/Hyundai for being so damn good lately.

I would normally vote for the gt3, but I've come to the expectation that the gt3 will always be great.

That's why I voted for the panamera. While its easy to go balls to the wall and make a no compromise sports car, its a hell of a lot harder to blend sportiness and luxury BOTH very well at the same time.

If all 5 sets of keys were laying on a table, I know which set I'd walk away with.

I was going to change my vote to the GT3 after sobering up, but what's the point? It's massacring this poll anyway.
