    The New York Auto Show is almost upon us, and that means an international jury will name the winners in each of five categories of the World Car Awards. Before the winners can be announced, though, the committee has named the top three finalists in each category. The nominees for the

    2016 World Car of the Year award are:

    • Audi A4
    • Mazda MX-5

    The jury also selects winners in individual categories as well. Those categories are listed below.

    2016 World Luxury Car of the Year:

    • Audi Q7
    • BMW 7 Series
    • Volvo XC90

    The Performance finalists are:

    • Honda Civic Type R

    • Toyota Prius

    Top Design Award Finalist
