The Lexus LS and Mazda3 MPS deserve to win

Bummer. I knew the Holden would be voted out before long. It deserved a mention!<p>Anyway, There's only one car that deserves to win, and that is the RS4. Sure its pricey, but you just have to give credit to a car that cannot be improved really, no matter what idea you come up with.<p>Mazda 3.... yes..... But no. I mean its great, but not as perfect for its segment as the Audi.<p>On the other category, I'm disappointed. Nothing really deserves it. Q7 is okay, but nothing to write home about, TT is the same, C4 Picasso is a bit like every other citroen I've seen, C6 has nothing on its opponents, Fiat is okay if you're an europhile on a budget but there's way smarter choices otherwise, Lexus is a Japanese ripoff of german engineering and quality (Mind you a decent ripoff but I dont rate ripoffs anyway), the mercedes is bland, the mini is a BMW not the original iconic thing, and its not new, and the suxuki scores an incredible score of "Meh/10".<p>The Jaguar is the only decent car shortlisted.

The Holden Commodore kills eveything on that list if you don't include the Berlina/Omega spec.

VW Touran has a self-parking system as well and unlike that of the Lexus, it won't panic and abort if you touch the steering wheel. <br>The 8-speed is marketing crap and it doesn't do anything. Audi A5 has a 8-speed CVT and they admit it's just marketing. It's got the same power and weight as the S550, then why is it half a second slower despite the extra gear? <br>The good fuel economy is definitely aided by the fact that it has crappy low end torque and most drivers won't rev beyond 3,000 RPM. Like any Japanese engine, you have to rev the living crap out of it to get into the power band. And when you do cross 3000 RPM, will it have better mileage than the S550 then? <br>Interior is Boring. OMG, I sat in it and all I remember of it is how pretty the different colors in the speedo were. That's sad.
