Volkswagen Polo is the 2010 European Car of the Year –

Champagne and cookies for everyone at Volkswagen as the company has just receive the 2010 European Car of the Year award for its Polo compact hatchback. The small German model has inched away from the Toyota iQ and won the prestigious award.

The competition was tough to say the least, and although we had our money on the new Opel/Vauxhall Astra to step into the shoes of its bigger brother and last year’s winner, the Insignia, the Polo seems like a good choice.

Here is the final list, as voted by almost 60 automotive journalists from the old continent:

1. Volkswagen Polo 347 points 2. Toyota iQ 337 points 3. Opel/Vauxhall Astra 221 points 4. Skoda Yeti 158 points 5. Mercedes-Benz E-class 155 points 6. Peugeot 3008 144 points

7. Citroen C3 Picasso 113 points
