2021 World Car Awards: Top three finalists announced

By Divyank Kushagra Bansal | on March 30, 2021

The 'Top Three in the World' for each category of the 2021 World Car Awards have been announced!

The road to the 2021 World Car Awards began in August last year and at the start of March 2021, the world car finals countdown officially began with the announcement of the Top Ten and Top Five finalists in the five World Car Awards categories. Alongside these, the five finalists for the 2021 World Car Person of the Year were also announced.

Today, the world car finals countdown has reached one step closer to the finale, with the announcement of the 'Top Three in the World' finalists of the 2021 World Car Awards. A jury of 93 distinguished international automotive journalists, of which our editor, Dhruv Behl, is also a part, selected the finalists by secret ballot, based on their evaluation of each eligible vehicle as part of their professional work. KPMG was roped in to tabulate the vote results.
