The 2020 “Cars of the Year” in all categories

The 2020 “Cars of the Year” in all categories


MIAMI, Nov. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Renowned automotive journalist Enrique Kogan has named the cars of the year since 1982 when he launched Automundo Magazine, (which he sold in 92, but is still being published).

2020 Telluride

Over time, he felt the need to not limit this recognition to a single vehicle, therefore additional categories have been included.

Today, there are countless media and organizations that name cars of the year and unfortunately some of these cars turned out to be lemons of the year.

“Due to my vast knowledge in this field, I feel that I can name the best cars for 2020.  Yes my intuition may be wrong, but looking back to previous years, I feel I have hit it on the nail. 

I select the cars of the year so that buyers can be informed on the cars that appeal to them and whether or not that particular model has been awarded, “says Enrique.

He explains that when he selects a model of the year, he tries to analyze details, road tests, history, manufacture and several other references that merit an award.

“I like to study the model’s history, reliability, resale value and behavior on the road,” he says.

To determine which ones make the cut for the cars of the year 2020, he has been studying each category and each model. 

He explains that if we were to nominate “revelations of the year” like they do in entertainment,  we have Kia Telurride, Hyundai Sonata and Palisade, Chevrolet Corvette, Toyota Supra and the Jeep Gladiator.

Here is the list of the Cars of the Year by segment for 2020:

Second: Toyota Avalon, one of the most reliable in the market with excellent resale value.

Luxury Sedan:
Winner: Lexus LS 500 the best since it went on sale. It has reliability, resale value and zero problems.
